Boulder schools step up security after racist threats
April 14, 2010
BOULDER, Colo. (AP) – School officials say they’re stepping up security at two schools after death threats targeting African Americans and Hispanics were scrawled in a boys bathroom and on a cafeteria table.
School officials found a threat written in black marker in a bathroom at stall at Boulder High School saying, “All blacks will die on Friday April 16.” A similar message referencing Hispanics was scrawled on a cafeteria table at Boulder County’s Arapahoe Campus.
Boulder police spokeswoman Sarah Huntley on Tuesday said they’re investigating the threat at Boulder High while the Boulder sheriff’s office is investigating the threat at Arapahoe.
School officials say they’re meeting with students, staff and parents to discuss the threat.
