Black Deaf Student beaten: KKK and swastikas written on him

WJLA.com reports: D.C. police are investigating a possible hate crime at a high school for the deaf on the campus of Gallaudet University. Police Chief Cathy Lanier says a black student was held against his will for about an hour early Sunday in a dorm room by other students at the Model Secondary School for the Deaf.

Lanier says the students used a marker to write ‘KKK’ and draw swastikas on the student. They then let him go and he contacted authorities.

She says police have identified seven suspects in the incident. She says six of the suspects are white and one is black.

Lanier says the school has fully cooperated with the investigation.

Gallaudet University Provost Stephen Weiner says the student, who was not identified, is at home with his parents.

  1. Just ridiculous on so many fronts. Beating a handicapped person. Beating a person because of their skin color.

    Beating a person PERIOD. WTF is wrong with our society? I feel like today can’t get over fast enough. I was pissed when I saw Bush vetoed the Children’s Health Insurance bill and pissed when I saw Jimmy Carter was kicked out of Darfur and pissed when I saw the Myanmar junta shut off the Internet (thus the freedom fighters’ outlet to the world) and now I’m more pissed. Oh, not to mention the new facts released about how bad the police F’d up in Indiana over the 2 teens they gave up on searching for, if they even searched at all. Oh, and the “Muddy 6” crap some racist college students in LA put out.

    Geezus.
