A swastika was found by a Bloomington resident on the first night of Hanukkah. This is the third time Bloomington residents have noticed the hate symbol across the city in the last two weeks.
The swastika is recognized as a hate symbol by the Anti-Defamation League.
The swastika, found at the intersection of South Lincoln Street and East Smith Avenue, has since been painted over. In addition to the white paint covering the swastika, someone painted “Love Everyone” on the wall.
IU Police Department and Bloomington Police Department are both looking for suspects in the two previously reported incidents.
