As the attacks in Paris and new propaganda videos have renewed fears of ISIS attempting an attack in America, Youngstown State University got a rude awakening with a message in support of ISIS on their campus this morning.
The Ohio college found out this morning that a rock on their campus that is frequently used to advertise upcoming events was defaced with number of ominous pro-terror and anti-French messages. These messages include “YSU supports ISIS,” “France deserves destruction” and “We are coming.”

WKBN reported that although it is still unknown who left the messages and why, the school has already painted over the rock and sent out a mass text to warn students. The message said that police were investigating the matter, but also that “no credible threat” has been detected yet.
Shannon Tirone, YSU’s Associate Vice President for University Relations told The Blaze that the school would be reviewing security footage and would prosecute those found responsible.
“We take those threatening messages very seriously,” said Tirone. “With everything going on around the world today, we make sure we look into everything.”
