Greenville Residents Outraged By Recent Vandalism

Some Greenville residents are outraged after some controversial symbols and messages were spray painted onto buildings downtown.

It's a shocking sight in Greenville-- a swastika painted on the side of the Hendricks building on South Evans Street. On other buildings nearby there are similar symbols and messages.

Rebecca Coker says, "It's uglifying in a beautiful season and it breaks my heart and I don't know who's doing it, but I hope they'll stop. This is not the spirit of America."

ECU Student Fields Jackson says, "Just the symbol alone, just what it represents, that just somebody would go to that level, it's very upsetting."

Right now police are looking for the suspect who was caught on surveillance video Thursday around 2:20 a.m. spray painting a swastika on Senator Kay Hagan's office door.

Residents say it isn't just the symbols, but also the messages that upset them. Some of the messages say "What good is justice if the scales are bent" and "blind follow blind."

The US Capitol Police Department has been notified about Kagan's office and is cooperating with Greenville Police in regard to the damage.
