Sender of anti-Semitic texts to N.M. classmate is suspended


A New Mexico high school student was suspended for sending hundreds of anti-Semitic text messages to a Jewish classmate.

The sender reportedly confessed and was suspended from Eldorado High School in Albuquerque until January.

More than 1,700 anti-Semitic text messages were sent to his 14-year-old classmate over a period of several weeks, KRQE News in Albuquerque reported May 25. Some 500 of the messages sent back to back last week read “kill Jews, heil Hitler.ā€

Police investigating the incident identified it as a hate crime, according to the news channel.
