A pair of Northwestern University students were jailed after they allegedly painted swastikas, slurs, and Donald Trump‘s name on a chapel at the school. Anthony Morales, 19, and Matthew Kafker, 18, were charged with institutional vandalism and hate crime to a place of worship and one other charge over the weekend.
Circuit Court of Cook County Judge Peggy Chiampas read the charges to Morales and Kafker on Saturday, blasting the pair for their heinous actions. Not only did the two paint Trump’s name and the swastikas, but they also painted racist slurs and homophobic images as well.
From the Chicago Tribune:
“These allegations are disgusting to me,” Judge Peggy Chiampas said as she eyeballed Anthony Morales, 19, and Matthew Kafker, 18, her voice rising several times during a bond hearing at the Leighton Criminal Court Building.
The judge ordered both men held in lieu of $50,000 bail for charges of institutional vandalism, hate crime to a place of worship, and criminal damage to property for several spray-painted messages at the Alice Millar Chapel earlier this week.
The paper adds that Morales and Kafker both appeared in court in t-shirt and jeans. They did not offer any statements regarding the case during the appearance.
According to a New York Daily News report, Morales and Kafker painted penises on the chapel as well.
