Virginia Tech warns campus about threat made to kill all Muslims

Virginia Tech police alerted the campus Thursday that a threat had been made against Muslims.

“On Monday, Nov. 2, 2015, Virginia Tech Police Department received a report concerning graffiti that had been left inside a bathroom stall in Price Hall, ” the alert read. ” The graffiti stated “I will be here to kill all muslims (sic)”.

“The Virginia Tech Police Department continues to investigate this matter. We are making the community aware of this graffiti and seeking the community’s assistance.”

Obaid Rehman, president of the Muslim Student Association at Virginia Tech, said Muslim students were responding with fear, discomfort, and disappointment. “It’s unsettling that this kind of thing can take place here. It’s very disappointing that this rhetoric of hate is present.

“… Unfortunately, this rhetoric has become acceptable in many ways that people talk about Islam. Islamaphobia is becoming normalized in many ways in our society. But there are many more good people than bad, as we can see from the university reaction to this event.”

He said they had heard from many student groups offering support. “That’s a good community.

“.. If black, white, Jewish, Muslim. Hindu, whoever you are, whatever you believe, it’s very important that we all stand together and say you may be different than me… but at the end of the day we are all humans, we are all Americans, all part of one larger family.”

Mark Owczarski, a spokesman for the university, said, “It’s an ongoing investigation, and we hope sending out that notice to our community, which everyone at Virginia Tech got this afternoon, will help in the investigation… make people aware of what’s going on, take whatever steps they feel are necessary to support others and help themselves.”

“I think most students are probably alarmed and upset, ” said Tanushri Shankar, a senior from Rockville, Md. who is the president of student government on campus. Some students reached out to her to ask if there were ways to help. “But we’re grateful for the work the Virginia Tech police department is doing, and their leadership.”

What was the main story in the news just before the Virginia Tech shooting? | Yahoo Answers

Don Imus called some women's basketball team, we didn't even know existed on earth a name.A name he got from hip hop music. Well. Mr. Imus is White not Black so his freedom of speech was taken from him and set freedom of speech back 30 years. Shame on all parties involved.Oh yes Imus lost his job. And the Basketball team faded back into the wood work. And their coach is now a drama coach in Hollywood California. And how was your day?
