Vile ignorance is embarrassing to this community, but does not have to represent us as a community. Good to see the many families celebrating the park's recent improvements yesterday. Timing, park inspection in preparation of the event, does little to remove the ignorance of criminal individuals. It begins in parenting, schools, and in ourselves. Its simple: Love thy neighbors.

Probably done by idiots whose families were persecuted by hitler's regime. Ignorant fools.

Probably kids doing it for attention since they most likely have no idea what anti-sematism is. Not necessary to look into it any further by the police and waste tax payers money and the police manpower. No reason for any over sensitivity.

Over sensitivity? Not neccessary to look into it further. What a wonderful example of "No consequences" If we allow insensitive, uneducated , "acts of poor judgement" to continue then we are bad as the people young or old who perpetrate them... being held responsible for your actions regardless of age is what will help curb this idiocy and random acts of violence from continueing .. This is a insult to more then just the Jewish faith. this is an insult to an entire generation of individuals who fought and died to end the rain of terror that was persecuting people simply because of their religion and ethnicity. If kids DO NOT know about this horrific part of history then perhaps their parents should enlighten them..This was NOT acceptable regardless of age and should be investigated...
