article imageStudents withdraw from Ohio college after possible death threats

By Oliver VanDervoort     Jan 28, 2010 in Crime
Several students have withdrawn from an Ohio college after a threat to kill black students was written on a dorm's bathroom wall.
The Federal Bureau of Investigations has reportedly launched a hate crimes investigation into the graffiti, which was found in a bathroom at Hocking College, located in Nelsonville, Ohio
Roughly 400, or six percent of the school's student population is made up of African Americans according to the Columbus Dispatch.
The graffiti noted February 2nd as the date when an attack might commence, while the Associated Press reports that particular date doesn't seem to have any real relevance to the Community College.
The AP is also reporting that school officials have also been alerted to another note that said "kill the n-----s."
The fallout has been swift, as two black students have withdrawn from the college permanently, while another 12 have moved out of the dorm where the threat was found. Campus officials have ramped up security, with increased patrols, and are offering to move students out of the dorm temporarily.
