The Brighton Police Department is investigating a racist message found in a bathroom at Our Lady of Mercy School for Young Women. School officials say graffiti with the n-word and a message reading, "Get out of else." Police are investigating it as a hate crime. A school spokesman says the building was open all weekend for sports and activities. Police are reviewing the school's security footage.
"These types of incidents really don’t have any place let alone in a school setting, it is supposed to be a safe environment for kids to learn and they have to be exposed to this so again we are going to pull out all the stops, investigate it and see where the evidence takes us," said Brighton Police Chief David Catholdi.
Anyone with information on the racist graffiti should contact the Brighton Police Department at (585) 784-5150 or Mercy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
