A child drew those swastikas on that school playground

 

Forest Hills Post



A 12-year-old boy has been arrested for scrawling swastikas and other anti-Semitic symbols on a Rego Park playground last week.

The boy, whose name has not been released, was charged yesterday with aggravated harassment, according to news reports.

The boy allegedly drew dozens of swastikas and messages such as “Heil Hitler (sic)” in chalk over the school yard at P.S. 139, located at 93-06 63rd Dr.

 “Truly unbelievable,” Council Member Karen Koslowitz wrote on twitter. “I am shocked that a 12-year-old committed this crime. It’s completely unacceptable and has no place in society.”

Children will do stupid shit to get attention. It was probably a dare that from his friends so he did it.

Great parenting; you've gotten your child off to success in life, I see.

Give him a community service job as restitution.
The child draws straighter lines & graphics on pavement freehand then all the city's union hacks could do put together.
Has anybody seen the roadwork on Northern blvd in Elmhurst?

Motorists, buses and bikes are crashing due to all the cockeyed, incorrect and non existent lines. This has been going on months, almost a year!!

The question is, Why? Either he had no recognition of the meaning of those symbols and phrases (highly doubtful), or it was a deliberate act of vandalism designed to inflame. Either way, he will learn something from his pointless behavior.

Once again the media failed to start up religion and race wars. It would be an even bigger kicker if the child who drew this was a Jewish kid! The irony.

"Heil Hitler (sic)"

That article from The Forest Hills Post can't even get that right - poor grammar and orthodoxy, spelling, knowledge of foreign languages. VERY SLOPPY JOURNALISM.

Check out one of the original photos of what was written HERE.

The reporter and editor should have correctly written "Hail Hitler" [sic]. Note the original English and positioning of the sic brackets (not parens).

Hail Queens Crap! This site is s-o-o-o educational.

This kid should be forced to endure a public struggle session, followed by one hour of mandatory shopping along Austin Street, for a period of 30 consecutive days.

The kid probably learned that from The History Channel. Certainly not in history taught at school.

Kids have always had a morbid fascination with Nazis and the holocaust...They don't often act on it though...

A 12 year old is the designated fall guy? Wow, that is low. Someone else put him up to it for false flag purposes.

I'm not. Juveniles act juvenile.
