A group of ‘kids’ are being blamed for a rampage through Brooklyn’s Jewish Midwood section at the weekend. Cars were set on fire, and hate messages were sprayed on vehicles and walls in the early hours of Saturday morning.
One van had the letters KKK painted on the side, while other graffiti referred to the holocaust and various Jewish stereotypes. Cars were burning and property had been attacked, though no-one was injured in the rampge.
It’s not clear who was responsible for the attack but some witnesses report seeing a group of laughing kids running from the scene. New York’s mayor, Michael Bloomberg, has condemned the attacks.
