Police were investigating possible hate crimes in Reedy Fork Ranch after three homes and a vehicle were spray painted late Friday or early Saturday on Elderbush Drive.One would hate for the Greensboro Police Department to go out on a limb for this one. There could be any number of reasons for someone to spray-paint anti-semitic graffiti.
The graffiti included obscenities and the word Jew.
“We are treating it as a hate crime.” said Susan Danielsen, a department spokeswoman. “But we don’t know for sure if it is.”
Maybe this is just someone who wants to play words with friends but lacks a computer connection or a smart phone.
Maybe the auto-correct in the spray can accidentally inserted the word "jews" into the message.
Or maybe it was a self-appointed neighborhood watch captain who was "standing his ground" when the houses and car attacked him.
The possibilities really are endless.
