If you are committing a crime, it’s not a smart idea to write the group you belong to. If you are threatening people, like saying ‘kill white people’, then you really shouldn’t leave evidence of who you are. That’s what terrorists do.
Deputies found graffiti in Hillsborough County at two different locations.
One wall was hit along Gornto Lake Road in Brandon, with the phrase “kill white people” spray painted. Other tags read “black lives matter” and “BLM.”
A crew painted over the phrases.
“It’s uncalled for, there’s a way to protest, there’s a way not to, this is just, it hurts everybody,” Cat D’Alessandro said.
She saw a deputy along the road working to cover up the hate message, bought her own spray paint cans and helped out.
“I was kind of sad really because why does it have to be like, why does it have to get to this,” she said.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office said they don’t know who did this and it’s not the only damage. Less than a 10 minute drive away, a trailer was hit with similar messages. The Trump sign in their front yard was painted over.
