A professor has reversed his decision to resign from a university in Utah after being criticized for tweets about nationwide protests over race and police use of force. The Standard-Examiner reported Weber State University confirmed in an email that criminal justice professor Scott Senjo rescinded his resignation submitted  June 3. Senjo’s Twitter account shows he tweeted support for damage done to CNN headquarters in Atlanta and made threatening comments toward a reporter and protesters in New York City. Weber State says Senjo will remain on leave while the university in Ogden conducts a review.
