The Youngstown State rock was defaced this weekend and police are investigating the source of the pro-ISIS messages, WBNS Channel 10 reports.
University spokeswoman Shannon Tirone says staff discovered the messages when they arrived on campus Monday morning. The messages on the rock outside of the Kilcawley Center read: “We are coming,” ”France Deserves Destruction” and “YSU supports ISIS.”
Tirone says employees painted over the messages with white paint and some students plan to re-paint the rock with an American flag.
At this time it is not believed to be a credible threat to the school or to the area, but it is disturbing to say the least.
It is, I think, worth nothing that this message in support of terrorism and wishing destruction on a group of people has not received any national attention. I invite you to ponder with me what may have happened on this university campus if the message spray-painted on this rock were anti-Muslim instead of anti-France.
Just think about that.
