Anti-Semitic graffiti found in downtown Spokane


Earlier today (Friday) the Community Building in downtown Spokane was tagged anti-Semitic graffiti.

Written in chalk on the building wall in the alley were the words, “Hitler did nothing wrong” and other hateful remarks.

The police are looking into the vandalism.

This comes after a round of hateful fliers were posted throughout downtown last month, including on the Community Building.
