Let's hope Stanford responds more swiftly and strongly to this than in the past. Also what's local law enforcement doing about this latest incident of hate speech and threats? Anything?

He does have mental health issues. I read about him in 2020. His mom said he had a "severe mental breakdown" due to isolation from the pandemic. If he's a threat, good for Stanford for banning him.

I don't think anyone is trying to exonerate him for his mental issues. I think they're stating that he needs help. If you watch his videos, and read his tweets, it's obvious he needs help. He also should be expelled. The two are not mutually exclusive.

Stanford also needs to find out who runs the Twitter feed for The Lotus Group @thelotusg Plenty of hate coming from that account, many retweeted by Chaze Vinci

He seems like an ultra conservative type, spewing his neo nazi ideologies. However, has he made any legitimate threats? Should he be really expelled or put on some lesser punishment, like academic probation? Or required to take “diversity and inclusion “ classes? Although I suspect if he is deep down truly a racist, no amount of training will change him.
