BURLINGTON, ON  APRIL 19, 2012  Sometime over the weekend of March 6th, someone snuck onto the grounds of St Patrick’s Elementary School located at 200 Kenwood Drive and spray painted racist graffiti on the brick walls.

Despite the immediate removal of the graffiti the school was targeted three weeks in a row.  While the property damage is bad enough, it is the thinking behind the spraying of racists graffiti on a school that is the most troubling.

School targeted with racist graffiti - three weeks in a row

If caught early enough the behaviour can be corrected.  If left to fester in the minds of whoever did this – it can lead to things like the trial going on in Norway where a racist individual committed a horrendous crime.

Catch it now before it gets out of hand.  The person behaving like a racist learned this behavior somewhere – he or she didn`t pick it up from a doorknob.

Anyone with information on this or any other crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-8477 (TIPS) or through the web at www.haltoncrimestoppers.com or by texting “Tip201” with your message to 274637 (crimes).
