Detroit activists target CMU

The Rev. Charles Williams II of the Detroit-based National Council for Community Empowerment speaks on the campus of Central Michigan University Friday, demanding a federal investigation in the wake of the Engineering and Technology noose incident. CMU officials say they've already called in the FBI.

Students and others gathered in front of the Bovee University Center after the university announced that someone had hung four nooses in the Engineering Technology Building. Campus police are questioning students and faculty about whether they noticed suspicious activity in the building, the university released a statement denouncing the nooses as racist, and raised the reward offered for information on the incident to $5,000.
