The Montclarion – Offensive Bias Graffiti Reported on Campus
(Description note, “In clarifying an incident of bias reported earlier this month, Montclair State University Police Department said that a swastika had been drawn on a desk in Dickson Hall on Wednesday, Nov. 4. The University Detective Bureau along with the Bias Crime Unit of the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office determined the graffiti to be a “bias incident” rather than a crime of “bias intimidation.” The two are differentiated based on the intention of the culprit and are followed by differing police action and levels of consequences.”)
