California High School Vandalized With Swastikas, Obama Threats
A high school in California was vandalized Monday with swastikas, hate messages, and threats against United States President Barack Obama, CBS News reported.
The graffiti was discovered in the early hours of the morning around when staff at Leichman High School Special Education Center arrived on campus.
The damage included pictures of bombs, anti-LAPD rhetoric, swastikas and a “KILL OBAMA?” statement scrawled across the side of a main building, according to CBS.
“This is an unfortunate incident that affects us all,” Principal Giovanni Trivino told the news station.
The LAUSD special education center serves students ages 14 to 22 with moderate to severe disabilities. School is currently out for the summer and no students were on campus when the crime occurred, Trivino said.
“Our maintenance and operations team removed the graffiti. Counseling is offered to staff,” he added, according to CBS.
Damage to the school property was estimated at $2,500.
School officials say the campus was also vandalized in May.
The Los Angeles School Police and the Los Angeles Police Department are investigating the incident.
