Latest case of hateful graffiti in Wilton sparks outrage
The discovery of another case of racially-charged and anti-Semitic graffiti in Wilton is sparking outrage among residents and officials.
The latest incident involved statements painted on a bridge leading to Schenk?s Island. The graffiti was removed, but has left a mark on people in the town who have come to see the incidents as a pattern. Wilton has had five similar incidents since the spring, according to police.
"As the chief, it concerns me greatly because it puts a black eye on the town and gives people the idea that is what Wilton is about,? said Wilton Police Chief Edward Kulhawik. Wilton leaders have joined the Anti-Defamation League and Jewish leaders to speak out for change.
Wilton police say they don't have any suspects in the most recent case and are not sure if it is connected with any of the other recent graffiti incidents.
