Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., gave the following statement about racial slurs that targeted five cadets at the U.S. Air Force Academy Prep School. 

“As a member of the Air Force Academy Board of Visitors, I am particularly troubled and disgusted by the act of hate committed at the Air Force Academy Prep School. It is far beneath the dignity of the Air Force Academy, and I expect they will complete a full and thorough investigation and issue the appropriate punishment. We must remain committed to ensuring that the military is inclusive.  Anyone who is willing to serve our great country should be shown the utmost respect, and no one should ever be subjected to such hatefulness and bigotry,” said Polis.
