Courier Life confirms a tip BHB received earlier this week about a possible hate crime at the First Unitarian Church on Monroe Place:
Yournabe.com : A possible hate crime stained an otherwise calm weekend in Brooklyn Heights, as a swastika and other scrawl was discovered inside a Monroe Place church.
“Very inappropriate statements, and a swastika” were discovered painted inside the First Unitarian Universalist Church, between Pierrepont Street and Monroe, according to Captain Mark DiPaolo, the commanding officer of the 84th Precinct.
Some time between Sept. 13 and 14, a person entered the school portion of the church and also committed a burglary, snatching some cash andmusical equipment, DiPaolo said. Precinct cops responded to the scene on Monday, along with officers from the NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force.
