Muslim hate speech written on Sacramento State campus


Sacramento State officials are investigating hate speech writing discovered Tuesday on campus. 

University President Robert Nelsen said the hate speech was written toward the Muslim community on campus. 

"I was heartbroken and angered to learn that this happened on our campus," Nelsen wrote in a message to students, staff and faculty. "We are a Hornet family, and we will not stand for this kind of treatment of our family members."

The incident happened in the quad area of campus where student organizations gather to recruit and educate other students.

The Muslim Student Association was working at its table and took a break to go to class. When the students returned they found the hateful message.

Broken gas line in Midtown capped, road closures still in effect


A ruptured gas line at I and 15th Streets has been capped by PG&E, Sacramento Fire spokesman Chris Harvey confirmed.

Evacuations and road closures at I Street from 14th to 16th Streets and on 15th Street from H to J streets are still in effect, Harvey added.

The gas line on I and 15th Streets caused Sacramento firefighters to evacuate the surrounding area. Gas started to leak from a manhole and has caused the intersection to be closed down.

The cause of the break occurred when PG&E crews installed the gas line and bored through the City Sewer System, Harvey said.

Today city crews were working to clear the sewer system out and did not realize the pipe was there, he added.

Harvey said that evacuations and road closures will remain in effect for several hours.
