UNO finds swastika, 'Make America great again' carved into bathroom wall
•By Rick Ruggles / World-Herald staff writer
A University of Nebraska at Omaha faculty member discovered an anti-Semitic term and a swastika carved into a bathroom wall this week, the university said.
The message called for Jews to be gassed and used an ethnic slur, said UNO Police Chief Charlotte Evans
It also read: “Make America great again,” she and Assistant Chief Mike Murphy said.
Evans said they have no suspects but are investigating, including looking through hallway video footage.
At the least, the carving is destruction of property and vandalism, Evans said.
The slur was found Thursday and sanded away that day, she said.
The message was found in a second-floor bathroom in Arts and Sciences Hall.
Dan Shipp , UNO’s vice chancellor for student affairs, said the act also might be pursued as a hate crime. That would be up to the public safety department, he said.
Shipp said it was his understanding that the wording and image were only about the size of a person’s palm but that the message was hateful and disturbing.
Shipp said, “We take this very seriously.”
