A Long Island, New York, college student faked hate crimes by drawing Swastikas and other hate words on his college campus since October, as fellow college students blamed Trump supporters.
Jasskirat Saini of Plainview, N.Y., a 20-year old student from Nassau Community College, was arrested by the Nassau County police after an investigation and a surveillance video determined he was responsible for drawing more than 100 swastikas, KKK symbols, and the words “Heil Hitler” over 12 times on the campus since early October. His last graffiti attack was on December 17th at the college’s G Building.
Nassau County Police say Saini used a black permanent marker to draw the anti-Semitic symbols at the Community college with a large Jewish population, and many of the college students blamed Trump supporters.
Police say Saini said he did it because he felt he was being harassed by the Jewish community in his hometown of Plainview.
Saini was charged with 12 counts of Aggravated Harassment and is being held with a $60,000 bail.
Robert Solomon, chairman of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Long Island, stated to a local Long Island newspaper, The Long Island Press, “I think we have to connect the dots here. There are dangerous winds of hate, which are blowing across America. Whether it’s under the guise of alt-right or nationalism or Brexit, or whatever you call it, things are happening that are inciting the passions of those people in this country.”
