Student's car vandalized in hate crime

By Zac Farber

A Macalester student’s car was “vandalized with homophobic graffiti and damaged” last Saturday night or Sunday morning, according to a Bulletin Flash sent Tuesday to the Macalester community. The car was parked North of campus, near the corner of Summit Ave. and Fry St. There is no evidence Macalester students were involved in the crime.The Executive Board of Macalester College Student Government (MCSG) called for “a student response” in a statement sent to students on Wednesday.

“We support every student who is a part of this community, and this will not go overlooked,” the MCSG statement said. “We are a small community and this will undoubtedly send ripples to every corner of campus.”

Macalester Security was investigating the incident as this issue went to press.

“We’re still looking for someone who witnessed it to give us information,” Director of Safety and Security Terry Gorman said Wednesday.

The student whose car was vandalized did not return a call to The Mac Weekly Wednesday night.
