Default Police Probe Threatening ’1 Percent’ Graffiti Left On Atherton Homes

Quote:
Vandals have targeted one of the Bay Area’s wealthiest communities and their handiwork has gotten the attention of the FBI.

Last Sunday, multi-million dollar homes in Atherton had offensive graffiti sprayed on them. The graffiti was found on walls, fences and even a car.

Many of the messages said “F*** the 1%,” a reference to the income inequality between the top one percent of Americans and the rest of the population.

“It’s terrible,” said one neighbor who identified herself as Diane. “Yeah, it’s a terrible thing to do and to be here in town.”

“We go out and collect evidence and interview neighbors,” said Atherton Police Lt. Joe Wade. “We look for anything we can to lead us to the person who did this.”

One of the writings had a more threatening tone: “kill people.”

Neighbors are on the fence about who did it: Occupy protesters, gang members or teens with time to kill.”

“I don’t have this generation child but I can’t imagine them doing this,” said homeowner Carol Burke. “I think it is someone with an ax to grind.”

“As long as nobody was hurt is the main thing,” said Diane. “And you can always cover it up. “

Atherton Police say it is consulting with other agencies, including the FBI, in an effort to find the vandals. The FBI monitors activist movements such as Occupy Wall Street.

foundit66 started a thread a couple of weeks ago where Tom Perkins said that the hatred today in America toward the rich feels like the hatred toward the Jews in Germany before violence against them happened later...

This is a very dangerous drift in our American thinking. Kristallnacht was unthinkable in 1930; is its descendant "progressive" radicalism unthinkable now?
When you have vandalism of homes in the form of “F*** the 1%” and “kill people.”, it validates Perkins concern...

Like the way you guys trash fast food workers and people who need help like welfare? I don't hate the rich. I would like to join them. What I hate is that everything has been skewed in their favor. The richer you are the more breaks you get in our society.

But eight years before Kristallnacht Germany didn't have a state sponsored industrialized machine committed to genocide...

It morphed INTO one years later...

And Kristallnacht also had civilian participation...An "Occupy Germany", if you will...

Oh scary. Like the tea party and fox news calling themselves "real Americans" And separating themselves from the herd with a superior self image. Like that?

It is very boring, reading your sophomoric views on some of the threads here, Mikeyy. I wish you had something with substance in it that made for at least halfway intelligent reasoning.

Do you seriously believe that the persecutions committed in the 30's and 40's developed full blown out of nothing? Anti-Semitic sentiment was endemic across Europe in the 10's and 20's and had become a large force in Deutsch politics prior to the rise of Hitler.

Does FOX news not push an agenda to their followers of superiority? Do they not call themselves "Real Americans" as opposed to those other people? Believe me this false patriotism is on the rise and it comes from the right. The 47% comments. The idea that Obama gets elected by appealing to people who want free stuff. This stuff in engrained in RW thinking. The divide comes from the right. Wake up or I can give you more examples.
