    BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) A Burlington judge has thrown out a case against a University of Vermont student accused of using "explicitly racist and threatening language" against black students and diversity initiatives on campus.

    "This is a case that never should have been brought against him," said Ben Luna, Wesley Richter's lawyer.
    In October, the UVM continuing education student was cited by police for a charge of disorderly conduct after university officials said he used "explicitly racist and threatening language" against black students and diversity initiatives on campus. But after nearly two months of review, a Burlington judge has decided there was no probable cause and on Tuesday dismissed the case.
    "It is what it is. We put our best case forward. The judge looked at the law. We see it differently, but that's what the process is for," said Chittenden County State's Attorney Sarah George.
    George confirmed that her office received the judge's decision, which remains private under seal. But George says she still backs the decision to file the charge in the first place. "What we allege he did, we still allege he did. It just didn't rise to the level of a hate crime."

    From another source:

    The exact nature of Richter’s controversial phone call is not known, as the ruling prevents the release of an affidavit containing specific alleged quotations, but Richter has insisted that he did not make any threats during the conversation, which was reportedly overheard by three other individuals.

    One of the witnesses reported the incident, but another denied hearing anything inflammatory, and the third refused to speak with investigators.
    I'm going to guess Richter said something on his phone to his Mom unfavorable (and probably) toward BLM or concerning how whites are demonized (or something similar) and the one of the three witnesses who reported it took offense. I'm further going to guess that the witness who "denied hearing anything inflammatory" was fatal to a very weak case. I wonder why WCAX omitted that part of the case ...
