*A white man who posted threatening messages against black people on an anonymous social media app during racial protests at the University of Missouri last year has been sentenced to probation, reports the AP.
Hunter Park was a Missouri University of Science and Technology student on Nov. 10 when he posted the messages on Yik Yak. The 20-year-old Lake St. Louis man’s posts included statements that he was going to shoot every black person he sees.
His comments came the day after weeks of protests led to the resignation of then-University of Missouri president Tim Wolfe and the reassignment of Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin.
Park pleaded guilty in April of making a terroristic threat.
On Thursday, he received a three-year suspended sentence and was placed on five years of probation.
