Five Texas teens were arrested for racist graffiti at Martin High School, a rival of their native Arlington High.
Police say they’ve confessed to spray painting profanity, vulgar images, and the words â€œWhites Onlyâ€ over a drinking fountain. The words â€œTrans Onlyâ€ were purportedly spray-painted near a restroom.
Lt. Christopher Cook of the Arlington Police said, â€œThey were pretty remorseful. I donâ€™t think they gave a lot of thought to the ramifications. Unfortunately, youâ€™re held accountable for and thereâ€™s consequences when you engage in this sort of behavior.â€
Bond has been set at $2,500 each.
Math teacher Silas Robinson gave one bit of advice to any students considering retaliating against the five teens: â€œFinish the way you began. Stay strong and focused.â€
