Hate Crime of the Day at Columbia

Not in any way trying to diminish this most recent incident, but things are just getting stupid at Columbia, and honestly, nobody seems in any rush to solve any of these incidents, especially the purported noose hanging earlier this month.

Swastika found on professor's door at Columbia Teachers College
Police say a professor at Columbia University's Teachers College found a swastika painted on her office door, and the Police Department's hate crime unit is investigating.

Police were called to Teachers College on Wednesday morning after Professor Elizabeth Midlarsky, who is Jewish, discovered the swastika.

This is the second incident in less than a month involving a possible hate crime at Teachers College, Columbia University's graduate school of education.
Actually, it's at least the third, as Newsday failed to report this incident from last week.

More at NY1.
People around campus say they cannot believe yet another sign of hate was left at the school.

“I just couldn’t believe it was happening again,” said one Columbia University community member. “It’s like a bad dream, like the worst of Halloween. It’s just terrible, insensitive, hurtful beyond words.”

“We need to find out why this happening, why people would stoop to this level, really of juvenile, racist, anti-Semitic behavior,” said another. “We need to clean up our house. Something is obviously really wrong.”
