Utah College Condemns Professor's Tweets During Protests

Weber State University in Utah is condemning a series of tweets by a criminal justice professor during demonstrations last weekend protesting the death of George Floyd. The university said in a statement Monday that tweets by professor Scott Senjo were “abhorrent” and that an investigation is underway to determine if other measures would be taken to ensure campus safety. Senjo tweeted support for damage to CNN headquarters and commented on a post about police car driving into protesters that he would have driven it differently. Senjo didn't immediately return an email seeking comment. He has been a professor at the college since 2000.
