Swastika Found at Long Island State Park; Cuomo Calls for Investigation
Governor Andrew Cuomo is calling for state police to investigate after a swastika was reportedly found at a New York State Park on Long Island.
Cuomo's office say it was found by a jogger running along a bike path at Nissequogue River State Park in Suffolk County and a white supremacist message written in chalk.
''This abhorrent act of hate is deeply disturbing, especially at a time of great division and in the wake of the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in this nation's history,'' Cuomo's statement read. "In New York, we have zero tolerance for intolerance. I am directing the State Police Hate Crimes Unit to investigate this despicable act and hold those responsible to the fullest extent of the law. New Yorkers know the most powerful four-letter word is not hate — it's love."
