Breaking News: Swastikas painted on UC Davis Campus

DAVIS — Three more swastikas have been found spray-painted around the University of California, Davis. It’s the latest in a series of recent incidents ramping up racial and ethnic tensions at UC campuses around the state.

Campus police discovered the swastikas this morning, as students planned a rally against bigotry that day.The rally, attended by about 20 students, was done in response to two previous incidents at UC Davis: a swastika carved into the dormitory door of a Jewish student and the vandalism of a campus center for lesbian and gay students. Students in Los Angeles and Irvine also protested Tuesday against racist incidents at other UC campuses.

UC Davis Police Chief Annette Spicuzza says the latest swastikas are being investigated as vandalism, not hate crimes, because they did not target individuals.

12:00pm: Administrators and UCSD police were on library walk to monitor the distribution of the Koala. A “free speech” rally was scheduled to occur on library walk from 12-2pm. BSU has decided to not engage these counter-protests.

    What I don’t understand is why the Koala gets UCSD funding? Why are student fees going to pay for the Koala? If the Koala is engaging in offensive speech (in their paper and on their station), how does that not violate the “principles of community”? Thus how are they allowed to get money from the same students they offend? I have been wondering this for many years now as they continue to put out extremely offensive and, I would argue, threatening papers. In this sense, HOW does ACLU have a case that the Koala’s free speech rights are being violated, and how can the Koala claim they have a right to our money to continue their hate speech?
