Berkley High School Student Claims Responsibility For Racist Messages That Caused Walkout
Yesterday, the students at Berkley High School in California staged a major walkout after racist messages were found written on library computers.
There is now a student who is claiming responsibility for alarming and hateful threats that set the walkout in motion.
A 15-year-old Berkeley High student confessed Thursday to posting racist slurs a day earlier on a school library computer, the school principal said.
More than 1,500 Berkeley High students walked out of classes and marched through city streets Thursday, protesting reports of those slurs.
Berkeley police Officer Byron White said the department was pleased to identify the student so quickly.
“I think it’s terrific to be able to find out, and rare to solve something like this on the same day,” White said.
He said that the case is being reviewed and will most likely be turned over “to juvenile probation for review of charges. It’s a juvenile suspect.”
Hopefully this lil’ racist, terrorist, azzhole is punished to the furthest extent that the law allows.
