On Thursday morning at a high school in Hurricane, Utah, an ISIS flag was found flying on a flag pole. The American flag that was there was found shredded on the ground nearby. Hurricane High School called in the FBI which investigated and said the incident is not related to Islamic terrorism.
As part of the vandalism, graffiti was found on a school wall, reading, “ISIS is comi,” which is assumed to mean “coming.” The paint and black flag have been removed and a new U.S. flag is back where it belongs.
Investigators haven’t found who is responsible for the act and Hurricane police confirmed, “[B]ased on information we received from the FBI we do not believe this act was perpetrated by someone linked to the Islamic State.”
Classes continued normally for Thursday and Friday and school resource officers assured students they are safe.
Students were rightly concerned as they returned to classes across the country in the wake of the Florida school shooting. But to see the flag of ISIS waiving on campus the day after dozens of kids were shot and killed must’ve been alarming to say the least.
