Hateful stickers saying “’Diversity’ means no white neighborhoods” were recently posted at Willamette and 27th. Nazi graffiti was found scratched into the paint last week at the former Crest Drive Elementary School.
Police aren’t sure whether the stickers and symbols were placed at the same time or by the same person. No one has been arrested in conjunction with the vandalism and police are still investigating.
We ask anyone with any information that might lead to the identification of those responsible to contact the police. We all must be the “eyes and ears” for our community and let perpetrators know that hate is not tolerated in South Eugene.
Be a good neighbor.
Use your eyes and ears to make sure hate doesn’t take hold in our communities. Report hate activity.
