HURRICANE, Washington County — Police in southern Utah are investigating and two high school students are being disciplined for his or her alleged roles in an image displaying a person in a white hood holding two others with black materials on their faces.
Administrators say they are saddened and disgusted by the “repulsive” Snapchat photograph with a Accomplice flag backdrop and a caption with a racial slur and an apparent reference to searching African People.
“No degree of discipline can restore the hate, bigotry and ugliness portrayed in that one image. The vulgar ignorance and idiocy on display are beyond repair by any small discipline we will present,” Washington County Faculty District spokesman Steven Dunham stated in a press release.
The district moved to discipline two Hurricane Excessive Faculty college students late Thursday when it first discovered of the image, Dunham confirmed. The image was not captured on faculty grounds or throughout faculty time, so directors had fewer choices to sanction the scholars, but stated that does not “reduce our abhorrence of this racist act.”
Dunham declined to say how the scholars have been punished.
