What an outrage. Racist police officers have arrested a young Black artist after he and other youths transformed a menorah made of PVC pipes into a swastika.
It is shocking that in this current year we have mean spirited police officers oppressing young Black men like this.
From ABC 15:
Police have made several arrests in connection with a menorah that was vandalized and turned into a swastika late last year.
The menorah, which was made out of PVC pipes, was a Hanukkah decoration put up by a family near Chandler Boulevard and McClintock Drive.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation later joined the investigation as law enforcement looked into whether the vandalism constituted a hate crime.
Friday, police said four people, 19-year-old Clive Jamar Wilson and three juveniles, were arrested for the crime. A Chandler Police Department spokesperson said all four will be charged with one count of first-degree criminal trespass and one count of aggravated criminal damage, both Class 6 felonies.
This intelligent young man of color has every right to express himself in whatever way he chooses because of slavery. After all, the Jews had a big role to play in the slave trade!
