VICTORIA Police are investigating after a swastika was discovered scrawled on a police station in Emerald over the weekend.
A photo of the graffiti was posted on a Facebook group with the caption, “I think we’ve all had enough,” in reference to current lockdown restrictions.
Condemning the vandalism, Anti-Defamation Commission chairman Dvir Abramovich told The AJN, “No matter how one feels about COVID-19, equating any action with Hitler and the Holocaust is wrong and abhorrent.”
Stating, “To deface a police station with the world’s most evil symbol, representing the extermination of six million Jews and millions of others, is one of the ugliest and most outrageous acts I have seen,” Abramovich added, “I hope that those individuals, who took the time to deliberately express their vicious bigotry, are identified and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
