hate groups

At least twice since Purdue President Mitch Daniels sent a letter to the academic community about the bigotry in Charlottesville, Virginia earlier this year, his campus has seen posters from white supremacist groups put up in public spaces.

The president has been criticized more than once for not responding strongly enough to such actions, and on this month’s episode of WBAA’s Monthly Conversation with him, we ask whether the notoriety he’s sought for Purdue has made it a bigger target.

Indiana State Police say the actions of a Lafayette couple who murdered three people in Las Vegas have prompted them to offer more tips to the public about how to spot those people who might be about to commit violence.

Jerad and Amanda Miller had complained to their neighbors of government intrusion into their lives before leaving the area for Nevada. But it was unclear whether they were part of a larger group with malice toward authority.

Indiana State Police spokesman Dave Bursten says his department does have groups like that on its radar.
