Swastika Appears On City's Northside

Someone painted this Nazi swastika symbol on a utility box on the city's northside near 61st and Cooper. A hat tip to Mike Bowman for passing the photo along to me.

I've contacted the Department of Public Works and the swastika will be removed ASAP. Thank you to Mr. Bowman for bringing this to our attention.

I drive past this every day coming home from work.

Either I had never noticed it or it is pretty new.

Either way - there are 2 driveways just before that and the people leaving those driveways must have noticed it.

It would be interesting to find out what they think ? Do they even know what it is and means ?

Thank you for your attentiveness to this issue. Your constituents appreciate your rapid response.

I have been busy all morning so I did not get a chance to call it in yet.

Remember, Pres. Bush threatened to veto the proposed Federal Matthew Shephard Hate Crimes legislation, so it was then withdrawn. See:

The ADL has had years of attempting to educate people
concerning skinheads. Visit
their website. Please.

Ryan Vaughan is night-and-day compared to his predecessor.

Wrong party, of course, but still: night and day. :-)

Regarding this disgusting symbol: for several years now, the Jewish Community Center on the NW side has 24-hr. on-site off-duty police security. Sadly, there are still folks who threaten violence and nonsense.

I drove home tonight. It was painted over.

Thanks Mr. Vaughn !
