A Connecticut teen has been charged with computer crimes after police say he hacked into his school’s database and referenced a quote from Adolf Hitler in a high school yearbook.

Hollister Tryon, 18, was a student at Glastonbury High School, where the quote appeared in May beneath the photo of an unsuspecting classmate, police said.

It read, ‘It is a quite special secret pleasure how the people around us fail to realize what is really happening to them.’ 

The quote was attributed in the yearbook to George Floyd, the Black man killed by Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin last May. 

The quotes were discovered in May after the school began distributing the yearbooks. 

The school later recalled the yearbooks to remove the offending quotes. 

Police said Tyron was also responsible for another unauthorized yearbook entry, which referenced one of the Boston Marathon bombers and drug use.   

In an email to the school community, Glastonbury principle, Dr. Nancy E. Bean said the school is ‘saddened’ and ‘distressed’ by the incident and condemns all acts of violence.  

‘Acts of bias, bullying, and cruelty are not acceptable at out school,’ Bean wrote. ‘We are committed to to ensuring all Glastonbury High School students feel safe and supported.’

Bean said the school suspended yearbook distribution and has collected all yearbooks handed out to the senior students.    

Tryon was also barred from attending his graduation ceremony, and faces two counts of third-degree computer crime and is due in court on August 6.  

He is accused of unlawfully accessing a computer database students used to submit their yearbook quotes, changing the two students’ quotes prior to publication of the yearbook in October 2020.

His bond was set at $5,000.   

Chauvin was indicted on May 7 by a grand jury on separate federal charges that he violated Floyd’s civil rights by use of excessive force during arrest.
