Northwestern University hate crime never happened Xander Saide reported to police he was held at knifepoint by an attacker who used a racial slur. Other incidents on campus were reported this year, so a student rally was held last week. On Monday, Saide was arrested for filing a false police report. University officials and police say the communications major confessed to lying about the attack to "initiate dialogue about race relations." (via TMN)
