Brooklyn Vandals Won’t Quit With the Anti-Semitism

NYPD detective and NYPD hate crime unit are investigating bias attack on Ocean Parkway (between Avenues I & J) in Brooklyn. Earlier this morning, three cars were set on fire, anti-jewish slogans were spray-painted on benches, sidewalk and cars, including "Kill Fucking Jews", "K.K.K.", SS signs, swastikas. Dozens of Corona beer bottles, some broken were found at the scene. This are is strictly Sephardic community. Ongoing investigation, 66th precinct. A car burned in Brookly late last year.

In November, the NYPD investigated three separate incidents of anti-Semitic graffiti (and some torched cars) in Brooklyn's Jewish neighborhoods, followed by the discovery of swastika graffiti last week in Manhattan. More ugliness turned up over the weekend in Midwood, where "Die Jews" was sprayed onto a garage door, along with three swastikas. "This is just the latest in a series of ongoing anti-Semitic occurrences in Brooklyn and throughout New York City," said local Assemblyman Dov Hikind. "People are justifiably very concerned and upset." Police are investigating the vandalism as hate crimes, and have released security footage of the Manhattan defacement, which shows two Asian men and two Asian women as suspects.
