Racist Graffiti Sprayed On Chanhassen Garage Doors

CHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) — The Carver County sheriff’s office is asking for the public’s help in finding whoever vandalized some garage doors with a racial slur.

Deputies answered a call about property damage at 8:45 a.m. Tuesday. One garage door had the slur. The other door had a mushroom spray-painted in red. Damage is estimated at $300.

Sheriff Jim Olson calls the language “inflammatory” and says it will not be tolerated.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to a similar incident in Chanhassen later that morning. A deputy discovered the letters “SK,” a swastika and a smiley face spray-painted in red on a house. Damage in that case is estimated at $400.

Both cases are under investigation.

    We keep having shootings in Minneapolis.

    Meanwhile out west, the police are investigating people with their fly down at the gas station. Handing out DWI to someone sleeping in their garage, and investigating grafitti.

    If the Police are so bored out there, maybe we can borrow them to investigate real “Hate
    crimes” like murder.
