Omri Casspi mural defaced for the second time in a week

Sep 16, 2010, 6:25 PM EDT

It is time for some kind of gesture from the people of Sacramento, because this is not who they are. This is some little ass%&@#.

For the second time in a week, a swastika was painted on a mural of Israel’s Omri Casspi, according to the Sacramento Bee. As with the first time, the police have little to go on in the case — this is done by the kind of coward who does things under cover of darkness and sits quietly when the lights are on. These kinds of crimes almost need to have a witness seeing someone in the act to make any arrests.

This is not who the people of Sacramento are. As a person and a player they stand behind him. Sacramento is a diverse and tolerant community.

I’m not sure what kind of billboard or other grand gesture the people of Sacramento can make to show that they rise above this kind of stupidity. But they will not let one fool define them.

    Going by the photo I saw in this link, http://cbs13.com/breakingnews/omri.casspi.swastika.2.1902884.html, the first swastika drawn, at least, appears to be a left-facing, horizontal swastika. This is opposed to the right-facing, diagonal swastika associated with the Nazi regime. Now maybe I’m giving a vandal too much credit, but the swastika is only stigmatized because of the Nazi regime; numerous Western and Eastern cultures used the swastika as a symbol long before the Nazis came along. In most occasions, it is a symbol of the sun or life.
    Now the only irony we have to consider is whether the person in question is ignorant in a sense of racial prejudice, or ignorant in a sense of misunderstanding the difference in orientation of the symbol itself.

    Israel has been facing a lot of international criticism and one of their biggest weapons in their arsenal is the holocaust card. Don’t discount the thought that this could be a ploy for sympathy.

    really, in Sacramento. Someone in Israel decided that painting a swastika on a mural in Sacramento would help their country? Are you some kind of an idiot?

    to Shoshana…..that’s the most ridiculous statement I have ever heard….the slime ball that did this doesn’t have the balls to show his or her face….they only work in the wee hours of the night under darkness so no one can see them do it…..history has shown that these animals have the lowest of low IQ’s so they can be trained to do any and all hellacious acts of violence…..they’re like zombies to be thrown a bone by the real perpetrators that feed them….those are the real ones we need to go after….the one that stir up the hatred because that’s all they have ever known growing up in a hateful household….stop them and you’ll stop the zombies…..

    These low risk, high profile swastika-paintings are usually committed by jews themselves. At least half of them are painted the wrong way, it’s like the “hate-crime” fakers are so frightened of the real thing that they can’t bring themselves to make a proper “nazi”(right-hand) swastika.
    Look at incidents where someone is actually caught. It’s rare that the perp is a non-jewish white person. It’s almost always someone from the group supposedly targeted. When it’s at a home, its usually someone who lives there. When it’s a vandalized car, it is most often the owner who did it.

    What a scurvy little mindless punk you are Mr. realist. Only a screwed up idiot like yourself would come to that conclusion. Just like the other moron shoshana who sounds like a typical left wing self hating jew. Why don’t you two magots go write in Al Jazeera, at least then you will have company. Morons!
