Anti-Semitic graffiti at Cranston Stadium

From the Community Relations Council (CRC) of the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island:

On Monday, May 23, a day after an anti-Semitic act of vandalism in Pawtucket, Stebbins Stadium in Cranston was littered with spray paint graffiti. The messages were hateful. It included swastika symbols as well as hate directed to Muslim and African American communities. Below are media links for your review.
