Briefly: At QPac, hate crime victim expelled for hate crime

Harold Washington, 18, a black freshman basketball player at Quinnipiac University who only last month was the victim of a race-driven hate crime, has been charged for harassing another victim of the same crime. A communications major, Washington was alleged to have used the online social network Facebook to make threatening, racial comments to the victim, whose name has been withheld from the public, Hamden police Capt. Ronald Smith told the New Haven Register over the weekend. Washington has since been expelled from the school and has been charged with numerous hate crime-related criminal offenses.
