‘Hitler For President’ Painted On SFP Bulletin Board By Howard Schwach Police are looking for the person or persons who were involved with writing anti-Semitic graffiti in a laundry

room at 8800 Shore Front Parkway last Monday.

A police department spokesperson told The Wave that police responding to the laundry room at about 4 p.m. on Monday found "Hitler For President" written on one of the bulletin boards in the room, accompanied by a number of Swastikas, Nazi iconography.

Police have deemed the writings a bias incident and detectives from the 100 Precinct Squad are investigating.

This is the second incident during the week in which anti-Semitic writings were found in local buildings.

One local activist, who asked not to be identified, put the rise in bias writings squarely on the shoulders of the new Mel Gibson movie, "The Passion of Christ."

"Gibson says that the movie is not anti-Semitic," the local said on Wednesday. "People, however, get the message from the movie that the Jews were more responsible than the Romans for Christ’s crucifixion and they act accordingly."

Police officials declined to speculate on a motive for the anti-Semitic writing.
