Some eerie shit went down this afternoon in Lawrence. At about 1 PM, multiple individuals entered KU lecture halls dressed in military uniforms and Guy Fawkes masks. These individuals, led by a man who referred to himself as “Anonymous” (real original, I know) interrupted classes and spoke out against the university, campus police, and the Greek community.
They claim it was nothing more than a “peaceful protest” in response to the campus’ handling of recent sexual assault allegations.
Via Anonymous Tipster:
It seems as though it’s some sort of protest against rape. Last month, there were three sexual assault allegations over the same weekend. One occurred at a party at the Kappa Sigma chapter house and the other two occurred at a campus residence hall. The fraternity was the center of a media firestorm headed by the UDK (University Daily Kansan) while the on campus rapes were not reported on.
The on campus rapes were eventually reported.. on at least a week later, maybe longer. But the Kappa Sigma case continued to be the main focus as they were put on interim suspension.
Because of the age we live in, of course students captured these V for Vendetta wannabes on Instagram.
Normally, based on their costumes, I’d be booking it as soon as they came in the door, but the moment that dude opens his mouth, his nerdy voice eliminates all intimidation.
Still, throwing out phrases like “we are coming for you” and saying that the members of Kappa Sigma “will be dealt with accordingly,” doesn’t exactly sound like an innocent protest as much as it sounds like fucking threat.
Thankfully, nothing violent came of the incident today.
It’s unknown how many masked dingleberries took part in this 5th of November “protest,” but it’s been confirmed that two have been taken into custody by police.
We’ll keep you updated as this story progresses..
