University of Wyoming removes white supremacist posters

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The University of Wyoming has removed fliers containing white supremacist and neo-Nazi content that were posted in four of five buildings around the Laramie campus this week.

University spokesman Chad Baldwin <a target=”&mdash;blank” href=””>tells</a> KOWB-AM the posters were taken down because the group that put them up did not follow the proper approval process.

Baldwin says he knew that the group who put up the posters had done similar things in other colleges across the country, including Sheridan College and Northwest College in Wyoming.

He says campus police are investigating.

Student Rihanna Kelver says she’s pleased with the way UW is handling the situation and says she is proud to attend a university that doesn’t stand for those kinds of messages.
