<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Henderson said police are looking into whether the incident is linked to graffiti that was found in a locker on campus Oct. 2. A Nazi symbol and some anti-Muslim phrases were found drawn and written in black marker, and that incident was treated as a potential hate crime, Henderson said.</td>

This is so sad! I hope they find the gunman quickly. It makes me sick thinking how other Muslim students are probably living in fear. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I am so sick of all the crap Muslims are having to put up with in our country. I feel so ashamed of the way some people are behaving <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:

Very sad indeed. I do like how more people seem to be rallying behind victims of hate crimes, however.

There was a Muslim student here murdered just last week. Strangely, there doesn't seem to be much for answers on why though. The murderer committed suicide as the cops were coming to arrest him, but there are two others involved and I have yet to hear of why this occured in the first place. It's hard not to think the worst.

As horrified as I am that this was made up. I'm strangely relieved.

We were part of this community for many, many years and knew the parents of the victim. My understanding was that this was a car-jacking, that the guy wanted the kind of car that the victim was selling and was willing to do anything to get it. And while the victim was a student, he was 30(ish) and not exactly a naive 19-year-old, so they really must have got the drop on him, IYKWIM.
