Brooklyn,NY   Police are looking for the person who carved nearly 30 swastikas into newly poured concrete in Brooklyn over the weekend.

“This guy is on camera as clear as can be,” Hikind wrote on his facebook page. “A swastika is the ultimate symbol of hate. What would motivate somebody to do that?”

“Our community supports and works with the police,” said Hikind. “I have great         confidence that the perpetrator of this hate crime will be caught.”
