another student arrested for gun possession

Come on, man. The University of Texas Police have arrested a student for bringing a gun onto campus. And guess what? He's Asian! An anonymous tip led to the arrest of 20-year-old Jason Liao, who apparently told friends who saw him with a semi-automatic weapon that he was "on a mission": U.T. student arrested for having a gun on campus. Liao is charged with unlawfully bringing a weapon into a prohibited place. If convicted he faces 2 to 10-years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.

Ah yes. Another one of these guys. While having a gun on campus is no doubt a serious matter for the police, I can't help but wonder if the fact that Liao is Asian made everyone a little more jumpy. Who knows? His friends and roommates defended him, saying he's not a threat, and just "a harmless, gangster wannabe who got caught up in Chinese movies depicting gangs." This, unfortunately, makes him sound more like a loser.
