Blackman High School has located the students who allegedly drew a red swastika on toilet paper that was taped to a wall in the girls restroom.
Rutherford County Schools spokesperson James Evans told WGNS on Wednesday, "The students responsible for the bathroom vandalism at Blackman High School have been caught, severely disciplined and will face criminal charges." Evidently, a female student found the Swastika on Tuesday morning before the second period began. The Swastika was below a toilet paper holder in a bathroom stall.
Blackman Principal Leisa Justus has sent the following message to Blackman parents to keep them informed.
"Yesterday, a student alerted school officials about vandalism with hate enhancement in a girls bathroom stall, which was a swastika made out of toilet paper and fingernail polish. School administration and SROs immediately began investigation, and the perpetrators have been identified. The two female students are being disciplined to the fullest extent of school board and law enforcement policy. The students have been expelled and the school is pursuing criminal charges."
It is not known what criminal charges could be filed at this point.
Names will not be released because the incident involved two juveniles.
