Police Storm Dorm Room of Black Student After Family Says White Students Made False Claims

At 3 a.m. on September 14, 17-year old Christin Evans was awoken to law enforcement agents storming into her dorm room with guns drawn.

Evans, a Black freshman at Stephen F. Austin University (SFA) had been the victim of a dangerous prank called “swatting.” Swatting is falsely reporting an emergency to police with the intent of getting a “SWAT team” response to a location where no emergency exists.

Three of Evans’ white roommates, along with 7 other students, told police that she was brandishing a pair of scissors and threatening to stab students in the dorm.

After reviewing surveillance video, police found that Evans was innocent and the report given to them was false.

Evans says her roommates are racist and the experience destroyed her first year in college. She is still enrolled in classes at the university but moved out of student housing after the incident.

At a press conference regarding the incident, Evans tearfully shared how her college experience has been tarnished since that night.

“I was looking forward to making friends and having a good time on the cheer team, but since this has happened, it’s made it really, really hard,” she said. 

SFA President Scott Gordon released the following statement regarding the racist attack on Evans some two weeks after drawing heat over his inaction.

The statement read:

“I have been briefed on the incident that took place on September 14th and want everyone to know that SFA takes this matter very seriously. Filing a false report violates the SFA Code of Conduct and potentially violates the law as well. The investigation and judicial processes take time. I want to urge everyone to withhold judgement until the conclusion of our investigation and process. 

I have directed staff to be thorough and keep me apprised throughout this investigation. 

Each perpetrator will be dealt with appropriately. 

My heart goes out to the young lady who was an innocent victim in this matter. We will do all we can to support her and her family through this heinous ordeal.

We will not have this at SFA!”

Campus police say they are still investigating the incident. No action has been taken against any of the students so far.

After what happened to Breonna Taylor, and with the knowledge that somebody could very easily have gotten hurt or killed, I hope these criminals serve jail time and are fined heavily. This girl could have ended up killed. This is not a prank; this is a serious crime. Furthermore, the cost and risk of life incurred by members of a SWAT team on ANY kind of deployment is even further reason to charge these students. I am also left with a bad taste when I read that this was intended as a joke. We ALL know how bullies (and racists) use that excuse to get away with malicious and cruel behavior. Thank God neither this girl nor anybody else was seriously hurt. But, I imagine she is emotionally damaged. It makes me sick.

TBE: “To be expected.” Cops once came to my apt. door and stood there when I answered with guns in hands. Their aim was to merely scare me. Whence they saw the look on my face of “No Fear,” one hollered come on; and they left the hallway. This is a terrorism tactic. Anglo-Americans know whence they call mainly Euromerican KKKops on Blacks, they’ll come running to try and instill that age-old plantationomics fear. I have been routinely filing claims/reports on MD KKKops and the political reps.

I’M so sick of white people. They just have a racist hate on every Black, hispanic, Indian, other race because they are evil. Police needs to start getting charged much more for their stupidity. Death penalty and life in prison should happen to racist people and police that are caught starting problems like this. It’s sad that police can never be a trust and White ppl are still trying to bring KKK racist back.
