Letters Of Granby School Sign Rearranged To Spell Racial Slur

Police were alerted Saturday that someone rearranged letters on a Granby school's sign to spell out a racial slur targeting African-Americans.

Anna Rogers said her boyfriend spotted the vandalism when they were out for a drive after lunch, and asked her to turn around and take a look.

Rogers, who said she'd never seen racist graffiti before, said her first reaction was: "Oh my God, what are we going to do? I was in shock."

Rogers called police, and 15 minutes later, the letters were removed from the sign at Granby Memorial High School.

She said it was reassuring that police responded so quickly.

Police say they're working with the school district...
