The Daily Mississippian reports that an arrest in imminent regarding the vandalism of the James Meredith statue between the Lyceum and the library on the Ole Miss campus.
There is a chance, of course, that the person or persons who did this will be drunk, racist fraternity boys. I don't think this will be the case. I think it was either non-students or else a good old-fashioned race-hoax.
We'll see. There are a number of things about this that seem very suspicious to me, including the use of the former Georgia flag. I'll post more after an arrest is made.
But no matter what, whoever did this needs to be punished. It gives the school a black eye and causes untold turmoil. The university cannot afford to simply ignore this.
