Civil rights leaders want prosecutors to bring more serious charges against three white students accused of repeatedly abusing a black freshman at San Jose State University. The students currently face misdemeanor hate-crime and battery charges for allegedly forcing their 17-year-old black roommate to wear a bicycle lock around his neck and taunting him with racial slurs that referred to slavery. On Saturday, the president of the local chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People called on prosecutors to file felony hate-crime and false imprisonment charges in the case.

Jared Lee Loughner, it is now becoming clear, was no stranger to run-ins with authorities ? and even had one a few hours before the shooting rampage he is charged with committing at a Tucson shopping center. His behavior ranged from "subdued" ? as he was described by an officer who stopped him for running a red light early Saturday ? to angry and intimidating, as when he yelled at an instructor who gave him a B in Pilates at Pima Community College, according to school records. On Wednesday, the Arizona Game and Fish Department said one of its officers had let Loughner go with a warning after the traffic stop.

Long Beach City College will offer two sessions this winter -- one charging $46 per unit, the other $225 per unit -- in the first test of a new state law designed to help students graduate more quickly, officials announced Wednesday. The legislation, signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown earlier this month, creates a pilot program for six community colleges, including the Long Beach campus, to charge higher tuition in summer and winter for such hard-to-obtain classes as college algebra, history and English that students need to graduate and transfer.
