At Santa Clara, Intolerance and Leaked Videos

October 17, 2016

Santa Clara University officials and students have been shaken this month both by incidents of intolerance and leaked video of those incidents. In one instance, people vandalized an art exhibit showing statues to represent the 43 students abducted and presumed dead in 2014 in Mexico. In another, a swastika was drawn in blood on a residence hall elevator.

Officials have vowed to investigate and punish the people involved. But at the same time, officials are concerned about leaked video of the incidents (the statue vandalism may be found here and the swastika incident is below). The video comes from security cameras that are supposed to be used by security officials and not released to the public. Some of the videos posted to social media have had the tag line "SCUWatch is watching."
