Occidental College is investigating reports of vandalism to a 9/11 memorial on its Eagle Rock campus.
The memorial, consisting of 2,997 tiny American flags, was put in place in the quad area Saturday night by members of the student organization the Occidental College Republican Club, with each flag representing a victim of the Sept, 11, 2001, terror attacks,
But by Sunday morning, the club reported that the memorial had been trashed. On their Facebook page, the Occidental College Republican Club said that vandals had “crushed, snapped, and threw in the garbage every single flag. Not one was left on the ground.”
The group also claimed that posters and flyers had been posted on campus that “shamed the victims of 9/11.”
