October 8, 2018

SCOTCH PLAINS, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey high school has been defaced with racist, anti-Semitic and misogynistic graffiti.

The graffiti was discovered at Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School over the weekend. The images included a swastika, racial slurs and hateful language about former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Officials removed the images Saturday morning.

Scotch Plains-Fanwood Regional School District officials say the vandalism was “highly offensive and inflammatory.”

Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest New Jersey Chief Executive Dov Ben-Shimon says the organization has reached out to the Scotch Plains police department, the Union County Prosecutor’s Office and Homeland Security officials.
