by September 17, 2010

Another swastika appeared on the Kings’ player’s mural in Sacramento, reports the Sac Bee. Sigh: “A midtown mural depicting Sacramento Kings player Omri Casspi recently was defaced with a swastika – the second time in a week, according to authorities. An unidentified caller reported the vandalism on the mural – painted along the east side of 16th street, south of Q Street – to city officials about 10:30 a.m., said Sacramento police Sgt. Norm Leong. City workers painted over the swastika shortly thereafter. Leong said it’s unclear when the vandalism occurred, though it likely was recent … Sacramento’s Crime Alert organization is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information regarding the crime. Recently, officials from the Anti-Defamation League supplemented that reward with an additional $1,000.”
