Swastika, racial slur found in Brien McMahon High School

Posted: Updated:

Two reported hate incidents at a high school in Norwalk are being investigated.

Police and Norwalk public schools report that a swastika was drawn on the seat of a chair in a computer lab at Brien McMahon High School.  

This comes after someone rearranged the letters on a keyboard to spell a racial slur in the same computer lab just last week.

"They get messages that aren't accurate and sometimes they're looking to get attention, sometimes they're looking to offend, sometimes they think it's funny," Ginsburg said.
