Students’ arrest over slur prompts review of ridicule law

Students’ arrest over slur prompts review of ridicule law

Free speech concerns raised following the arrests of two Connecticut students accused of saying a racial slur have led state legislators to consider repealing a century-old ridicule law. The two were recorded by a black student while they uttered the racial slur. They maintain it was not directed at anyone in particular. Experts have said the students’ conduct was offensive but not criminal.
