Suspect sought for vandalizing a Musim’s car in Cincinnati, Ohio, with graffiti that said: “Trump America” and “Go Home Musslim (sic)” and a Nazi swastika (Muslim favorite). Notice the so sad faces on FBI and Police spokespersons. One would think there was a homicide instead of just graffiti.
A $3,000 reward is being offered for information in a suspected hate crime in Cincinnati after a car was vandalized last May.
Video from the May 4, 2017, incident shows a person defacing a vehicle that belonged to a person of Middle Eastern descent, Cincinnati FBI officials said at a press conference Friday, ABC affiliate WCPO reported.
The car had its tires slit and was spray-painted with swastikas and offensive phrases, according to the FBI. Graffiti painted on the car included, “Musslim [sic] Terrorist,” “Go Home” and “Trump America.” The vehicle’s windows were also broken.
“We believe that this vehicle was specifically targeted because it was owned by a person of Middle Eastern descent,” special agent in charge Angela Byers said, WCPO reported. “Because of their wide-ranging impact, investigating hate crime is a priority for the FBI,” Byers added. “And they will not be tolerated.”
