White Supremacist Graffiti on Wolfe St?

Brent Finnegan -- August 19th, 2009

Today’s HPD Noteworthy Report listed “Destruction/Damage/Vandalism of Property,” reported last night at 10:52 p.m. at the 300, 400, and 500 blocks of East Wolfe Street. The HPD report states that “several individuals reported an unknown person spray painted graffiti on telephones and houses in this area.”

WHSV is reporting that police are investigating a possible hate crime in that neighborhood.

Up and down the block, pro-white messages were written on utility poles, and on people’s homes …

HPD says this is the first case of possible “hate” they’ve seen in quite some time.

I’m not sure what the “pro-white” messages said, but if anyone has pictures, or has seen it, please share in with the hburgnews readers.
