Racist and anti-Semitic graffiti at Calabasas High blamed on students

Graffiti on campus. Three Calabasas High School students were identified Tuesday as suspected vandals who spray-painted racist and anti-Semitic graffiti on campus, according to a KTLA report.  

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department officials said the students admitted to the vandalism in written statements given to detectives. 

The scrawls included swastikas, a picture of Hitler and words such as "whites only" and "gas chamber." The graffiti was discovered Saturday morning.

The watch commander at the Malibu/Lost Hills station, which patrols the area, declined to comment Tuesday night, saying that a news conference had been scheduled for Wednesday morning.

It appears like these punks enjoy "beutifying" public property. Perhaps a just sentence would be 400 hours of raking public parks, pulling weeds, planting flowers, etc. They would have all summer to do it!

It's crazy, I doubt they are real German's. If anything I think they believe in a part of WW1 and are just messing around with the graffitti. Kid's today are pretty well educated.

This is a sign of the times...and I don't see it getting better soon.

I just want to thank the Times for eliminating all of the online trackers (Tweeter, Facebook, etc.) for making comments. Thanks again!

What ever happened to teens hanging out at the mall or the park during spring break? Enjoy your childhood and stop spreading hateful messages.

life is to short for hate, this kids are not superior to other ethnicities, with these actions they teach us ,not to be like them.

This is absolutely shameful for the parents of these students. What are they teaching (or not teaching) their children about acceptance, understanding, and about racism and hate? Shame on the parents (and on society in general) for allowing racism and hate to exist and to perpetuate itself so rampantly.
