Just before city officials announced a crackdown on hate crimes yesterday, several cars in Jackson Heights were vandalized with racial slurs.
Above is a photograph from a blogger in Jackson Heights.
John Sabini issued a statement last night saying, “The residents of Jackson Heights have always been noted for their diversity and tolerance, and the crimes committed here recently are not just illegal but highly offensive. I call on the cowards who committed these acts to turn themselves in to the police immediately, and I call on the police to conduct a full and thorough investigation."
