Vulgar graffiti on Calgary synagogue, schools, sparks hate-crime probe

CALGARY - The spraying of a swastika and other vulgar graffiti on a synagogue and some schools in Calgary has been deemed by police as a hate crime.

Three suspects are being sought after the symbol was scrawled last week on a rear door of the southwest-area synagogue.

Vandals also tagged several schools with swastikas and other vulgar drawings and language.

All the graffiti has since been removed.

Investigators say surveillance video has given them a description of the suspects.

Judy Shapiro with the Calgary Jewish Foundation says many people in the community are distressed that a symbol of hate and evil is being displayed in highly-visible places. (CHQR)
