A grand jury has decided not to indict Boston University president Robert Brown on any charges stemming from a weeklong string of crimes after being issued a subpoena by the Boston City Council.

“Uhh, umm,” Brown said as he walked down the steps of City Hall a free man despite overwhelming evidence that he had committed multiple heinous crimes against fellow human beings.

All of the encounters had been documented extensively on video with hundreds of witnesses also willing to testify against Brown, whose systematic attempts to avoid confronting diversity issues at BU led to the crime spree.

Protesters in the Boston Common and along Commonwealth Avenue were in disbelief at the jury’s failure to indict the president.

“Today’s outcome is one that many in our city did not want,” mayor Martin Walsh said. “Yet Boston owns a proud and powerful tradition of expressing ourselves through nonviolent protest.”

Many students said that the tenuous relationship between the administration and the student body will take time to heal, if it will at all.

“I’m at a loss for words,” said Marcus DeWitt (SMG ‘15). “A society that lets this man walk free is a society that has some serious problems.

At press time, justice was still not being dealt to those responsible, and private universities were still ignoring basic action on inequalities in their faculties and student bodies.
