Sometime over the weekend (May 6th or 7th), racially charged graffiti was left in McGraw Park in Bloomington. The vandals spray-painted swastikas, the word KKK, and the n-word on a portion of the pavement in the park. The perpetrators are possibly three white male teenagers, aged 15 to 16, who also committed other vandalism in the area and were arrested for it.
Regardless of their ages, this is an egregious hate crime and should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
Local citizens are in the process of cleaning up the vandalism as of the evening of May 7th.
