Woman finds swastika on door

Police not calling it a hate crime
By The Spokesman-Review

A resident in the 600 block of South Helena with four bi-racial children awoke to find a black swastika spray painted on her front door Sunday. Police are investigating the incident, but are not calling it a hate crime. “We’re going to go ahead and call it malicious harassment,” said police officer Tim Moses.

In addition to the swastika on her door, the woman’s car windows were also spray painted. “She’s upset about it,” he said.

Moses said he believes it may be a teenager who committed the crime. “I’m sure some kid will run off his mouth and we’ll catch him,” he said.
