Akron Students Charged in Locker Room Swastika Case Pen Apology

The five Ellet High School students who were charged in March for pasting a swastika and racial slur on a locker room door have penned a court-ordered apology letter.

"We thought it was a joke but obviously it wasn't," the letter reads. "By being reminded of what all of the things we said we are reminded that racism, slavery, and anti-semitic views are still somehow affecting everyone today."

The students were charged with misdemeanor criminal mischief and ethnic intimidation. In March, Akron Public Schools Board of Education President Patrick Bravo said the Board would also discipline the high-schoolers, to "send a strong message to the entire community about this kind of behavior."

Akron Mayer Dan Horrigan called the crime "disturbing and unacceptable" in a statement last March.
