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 “Whites Only” over a drinking fountain. The words “Trans Only” were purportedly spray-painted near a restroom.

Lt. Christopher Cook of the Arlington Police said, “They were pretty remorseful. I don’t think they gave a lot of thought to the ramifications. Unfortunately, you’re held accountable for and there’s consequences when you engage in this sort of behavior.”

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: “Finish the way you began. Stay strong and focused.”
