Even though they weren't public about their antics like the high school students who dressed up as the KKK at a fundraiser or the highschoolers who wore shirts that spelled out the N-word these New Jersey high school students were busted for playing 'Jews vs Nazis' beer pong. Police are now investigating the incident after a photo surfaced.
This all started when a photo of the game was posted on Snapchat according to NJ.com. From there a student posted the above photo on her blog where she condemned the situation and the photo spread.
The students pictured have been confirmed as Princeton High School students Princeton schools Superintendent Steve Cochrane announced Thursday.
In the photo students are seen setting up the 'Jews vs Nazis' version of beer pong. NJ.com writes the game is officially referred to as 'Holocaust Pong' or 'Alcoholocaust.' As seen in the photo, the cups of the teams are arranged in a swastika and a Star of David respectively. One of the rules is the 'Jews' team can hide one of their cups, or as i'’s referred to in the game, "Anne Frank" it. The Nazis can bench an opponent for a round. This is called “Auschwitz.”
Jamaica Ponder, a 17-year-old junior at Princeton High School, is the one who posted the photo to her blog and alerted school authorities.
"I know I'm not the only one who saw this Snapchat story," wrote Ponder in a blog post. "Yet here I am, the only one saying anything about it. I am unsure as to what's worse: the static silence from my peers, or the fact that this happened in the first place."
Ponder told NJ Advance Media she recognized where the basement in which the photo was taken as being blocks away from her house.
Ponder may have alerted school authorities before posting about the photo on her blog, but she didn't name names. Instead she identified the students involved as "athletes and student leaders" and also as "captains of sports teams."
On Friday the Princeton Police Department said it was launching an investigation starting with the photo, which they received information about in an anonymous tip. Police Lt. John Bucchere said minors having alcohol on private property wasn’t illegal, but he added, "…if there is evidence that someone bought alcohol for minors or provided a place specifically for them to consume it, that is illegal."
Princeton schools Superintendent Steve Cochrane said he was very disappointed in the incident, calling the game anti-Semitic.
"We are responding to this incident as educators,'' said Cochrane. "We are supporting the individual students affected by what happened. We are meeting with faculty and with student leaders. We are considering offering specific programs, and we are examining those points in our curriculum where we can enhance students' understanding of key issues such as alcohol use, social media and tolerance of different faiths and cultures."
