Victoria Sanchez, KUSA - BOULDER, Colo. (KUSA) - Five students at Colorado's Boulder Prep High School were expelled for what the school is calling derogatory and threatening comments in a neo-Nazi Facebook group.
The online group called "The Fourth Reich Official" had members from various Colorado schools. One was a Boulder Prep student, who pledged allegiance to the Nazis, then took his own life last month. Then another member of the group blew the whistle on the racist messages and school officials stepped in.
Headmaster Lili Adeli said she couldn't believe what she read when a student showed her a private Facebook chat between students recruiting members for what they called a "war."
"We need vehicles and more weapons," one student wrote. "Rounding those up won't be too difficult though."
