Another "Hate Crime" Hoax
WASHINGTON -- George Washington University officials said a Jewish student who complained about swastikas showing up on her door put them there herself.
The student lives in Mitchell Hall, where half a dozen swastikas had shown up on her dorm room door in the past several weeks.
University police set up a hidden camera. They said the girl admitted responsibility Monday.
News 4 interviewed the student last week after the fifth swastika was discovered. She did not want to be identified.
"It's a big story," said Jake Sherman, GW Hatchet editor. "Thirty percent of GW students are Jewish"
Reporters at the GW Hatchet newspaper have been following the story since it began. They said they learned on Monday morning that the alleged victim would likely be implicated.
