N-Word Spray Painted on Door at Philadelphia High School
A vandal spray painted the n-word on the doors at John W. Hallahan High School sometime overnight. Though it has been removed from the school, Hallahan is sending a letter home with students about the incident.

“That’s the one reason I brought my daughter here is because of the diversity,” a parent told Action News. “It’s just a shame that one sick individual would come and do something like this at a girl’s school.”
Hallahan maintenance supervisor Phil Moyer cleaned up the graffiti this morning before kids got to school. The graffiti appears to have been made sometime between 10 p.m. and 1 a.m.
