Last Friday, the D.C. Regional Chapter of the Anti-Defamation League commended Georgetown for its quick response to recent bias-related incidents.
In a press release, ADL Regional Director David Friedman highlighted the Department of Public Safety’s “rigorous investigation and swift apprehension of a suspect in the recent bias related graffiti incidents on campus.”
“The University’s response sent a clear and unequivocal message that Georgetown will not tolerate hate crimes and expressions of bigotry,” Friedman added.
Last week, DPS apprehended a freshman student allegedly responsible for the bias-related incidents, which happened in New South and Darnall Halls on September 6 and 11. The suspect is accused of drawing swastikas and writing the word “Hitler” on whiteboards in the two dormitories.
