Monroe Twp. schools bar app after ‘Bring in a gun’ and ‘Send them all back to Africa’ posted
MONROE TOWNSHIP (Middlesex) — Students in this district have been told to delete a leading teen-focused social app from their personal devices, as an investigation continues into the posting of racially charged threats and other remarks in the forum.
Screenshots of the After School app, provided by a parent to MyCentralJersey.com, show incendiary comments such as "I hate every single person at this school except for a special few," "Bring in a Gun," "Can someone just get the SWAT Team to come in and round up all the Negros (sic)," and "Send them all back to Africa."
Both the Monroe School District business administrator and the principal of Monroe High School indicated a police report was being filed. According to the principal, the offensive content was posted from a personal device accessed outside the high school's wifi network.
