The Daily Camera reports that “One of several owners of a building in Gunbarrel found swastikas spray painted on two exterior walls early Tuesday.” (Full article here). Police are investigating.
Amy Stein, Community Director of the Boulder Office of the Anti-Defamation League, remarked,
ADL is disheartened to hear of the recent vandalism in our community and particularly disturbed to learn of the inclusion of a swastika. The swastika is an ugly symbol of hate, meant to instill fear. We encourage a full investigation of this act as a possible hate crime by the Boulder Police Department. If this is found to be a bias-motivated act, we encourage full prosecution under the Colorado Bias-Motivated Crimes Statute and the Boulder Hate Crimes Ordinance. We call for the Boulder community to speak out strongly against this crime and all acts of bias. Together, we must declare our community no place for hate.”
Anyone with information on the vandalism can call Boulder police at 303-441-3333.
