UPD + local law enforcement are on the scene of an incident on the San Marcos Campus Quad - 4 students have been arrested. This incident involves only students, no identified outside groups involved. We will continue to monitor, at this time there is no immediate threat to campus— Texas State (@txst) May 1, 2019

For context: students were gathering in front of UPD after they arrested three students who got into an altercation with a white supremacist. The white supremacist was able to walk away without being arrested.— Ben Salinas (@thirdben) May 1, 2019

They're continuing to arrest people of color ONLY and letting the yts go entirely.— may🌵 (@yungfollowill) May 1, 2019
Here's the video, #txst. We both went in to accompany someone who was arrested. They told us we couldn't follow them and we didn't immediately leave the lobby. They said her crime was "resisting arrest," but wouldn't that require a preceding crime..? pic.twitter.com/dic4Qn324R— may🌵 (@yungfollowill) May 1, 2019
I didn’t touch an officer, i didn’t touch another student. I was arrested for exercising my First Amendment Right. Denise, do something about it or WE WILL. https://t.co/NtpjtM3Cko— spank ☔️ (@KingChapo06) May 2, 2019
