Professor Allegedly Prompts False Report of Shooter

The University of Southern California went into lockdown Monday afternoon after a faculty member told students -- wrongly -- that there was an active shooter in a building, the Los Angeles Times reported. USC sent out alerts about police activity on campus and told people to shelter in place, but the warning was called off within the hour.

Both the Los Angeles Police Department and the university declined to the name the professor. But LAPD Deputy Chief Phillip Tingirides said the professor appeared to have had some sort of "episode" and told students there was an active shooter. The professor was not charged with a crime but was detained for questioning. Provost Michael Quick said in a statement that in the aftermath “of the tragic events in Las Vegas on Sunday, we understand this is a time of stress and anxiety. We want to remind you of the counseling resources we have available.”

Toronto Professor Who Made Racist Remark Resigns

Michael Marrus, a professor emeritus of history at the University of Toronto, resigned from a senior fellowship after making a racially offensive comment to a student at affiliated Massey College, the Toronto Star reported. Marrus was accused of asking a black graduate student whether he knew his “master,” which is what the head of the college was called until last week. “Do you feel the lash?” he reportedly asked the student. Some 200 students and faculty members soon signed a petition calling for Marrus’s termination and for the college to change its leader’s title.

“First, I am so sorry for what I said, in a poor effort at jocular humor at lunch last Tuesday,” Marrus wrote in his resignation letter to college head Hugh Segal, according to the Star. “What I said was both foolish and, I understood immediately, hurtful, and I want, first and foremost, to convey my deepest regrets to all whom I may have harmed.” Segal previously apologized for Marrus’s remarks on behalf of the college.
