BLACK LIES MATTER: Judge Sends Black Activist To Jail For Hoax Death Threats To Black Students, Faculty. [archive]

McKelvey’s motive for sending the tweets had been to create enthusiasm for a campus rally. The topic of the rally was racial issues. According to police, McKelvey slipped out of the rally to send the tweets. She then returned to the rally to spread awareness about the threats being made — by her — against black students. . . .

In addition to the 90-day jail sentence, the judge also imposed 100 hours of community service with the county sheriff, anger management therapy and a probation period of five years.
McKelvey must also pay restitution in the amount of $82,000 for the massive excess of federal, state and local security necessitated on campus by her Twitter stunt.
