What Kind of Person Would Carve a Swastika On The Back of a Jewish Teenager? Anyone? Anyone?

Family of autistic Jewish teen who had swastika carved on his back by classmates sues school

The family of an autistic Jewish high school student who had a swastika carved on his back in a cruel antisemitic attack by classmates is suing his Las Vegas school.

The abused teen and his mom, identified only as S.K. and C.K. in court papers, claim the Clark County School District not only failed to protect the 18-year-old, but dropped the ball on providing him a proper education.

“Specifically, on March 9, 2023, [the student] came home from school with a swastika physically carved into his back and the service dog bag was broken and re-sewn,” it said. “[He] refused to enter that specific bathroom after that day. The district denied any knowledge of the incident occurring.”

The teen has since been homeschooled.

The school bathroom assault predated the spike in antisemitic incidents at schools and college campuses throughout the country in the wake of the Oct. 7 assault on Israel by radical Hamas terrorists and the subsequent military response from the Jewish state in the Gaza Strip.
