Student Wrote Racial Slurs

Investigators have determined that a student at the Air Force Academy Preparatory School who purported himself to be the victim of a hate crime actually wrote the offensive material. The student, who was not identified, no longer attends the school. The insulting slurs were found written on a dormitory door at the Colorado Springs, Colo., campus in September, triggering a strong backlash from academy superintendent Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria.
