Bigotry in the bathroom

On Thursday, March 13, at 9:50 a.m., Campus Police were dispatched on a criminal mischief call from the third floor men’s bathroom of the Library. According to Campus Police, upon entering, officers discovered biased writing and imagery on the wall above the urinal. It read: “Join the Gay Niggers Association of America,” with subsequent messages “(GNA)” and “WWW.GNA” underneath. Additional writings included the phrase “Jews did WTC,” followed by two more images, a Star of David and a Swastika. Campus Police said they received the claim over Spring Break when student activity was minimal on campus, but the writing itself had not been seen the previous night. Facilities were then called to remove the writing, according to Campus Police.

Two items were reported stolen from an Athletic and Recreation Center office on Thursday, March 20. According to Campus Police, a $300 softball bat was stolen sometime back in November 2013, while more recently, a $40 black Rawlings fleece was taken between Friday, March 7, and Thursday, March 20, 2014. Both items were property of the College.

On Friday, March 21, at 2 a.m., a student reported that her Apple iPhone was stolen from the Library, according to Campus Police. The student was there between 12 a.m. and 2 a.m., only realizing later that her phone was missing. The property was valued at $600 with an additional $30 case.

On Saturday, March 22, at 12:05 a.m., a student was reported to be heavily intoxicated while in T-Dubbs. Campus Police said that although the student denied consuming any beverages before the incident, he was visibly swaying side-to-side, slurring his speech and having difficulty standing. The officer performed a Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test and concluded that the student was, in fact, intoxicated. Before being trasnported to Helene Fuld Hospital, the student admitted to having three beers — possibly Guinness — and possibly having “fallen down,” according to Campus Police.

While on patrol, Campus Police were approached by a student who reported seeing a visibly intoxicated female near the lake by the Facilities building on Saturday, March 22, at 1 a.m. The student led Campus Police to the location, where, according to Campus Police, the female in question was sitting on a bench, unresponsive and struggling to hold her head up. Soon after, she was transported to Hopewell Medical Center, Campus Police said. It was also uncovered from several other students that the female had traveled with them to an off-campus sports house where she drank approximately three vodka drinks and several beers.
