Vandals Leave Hate Messages At A Laurel County School

It was a shocking discovery for people at a Southern Kentucky school this morning.

In Laurel County someone spray painted graffiti all over buses, buildings, even the nearby post office was hit.

It's a can of cleaning solution normally used to clean up messes caused by preschoolers, but today, it found a new use.

Jim Meding was busy cleaning up graffiti this morning, on buses, buildings, even on the sign in front of the board office.

The East Bernstadt principal said it was quite a mess, and the message of hate left here was even more troubling.

But the vandals didn't stop there. Down the road at the post office, the post master found letters, symbols, and other unusual markings.

The good news is much of the graffiti quickly came off thanks to the cleaning power found in this can of "Goof Off."

Now school officials and police just hope they find the goofs who did this.

Meding says the school is well lit, so he thinks the vandalism happened very late at night.

    Our children are not use to all these threats and being searched before entering their school. They sit in school and worry, call their parents for reassurance all through the day, not to mention the parents who worry whether or not they should get their children when they hear bad things are going to happen. High school kids are old enough to know right & wrong, therefore, when they are caught, should be severly punished.

    These crimes need to be punished,if underage, parents should be held responsible/liable.This is extremely serious and should be treated as such,a thourgh investigation should be started and not ended until criminals are procuted to the fullest extent of the law.
