Default Vandal urinates on church statues, smashes them in possible hate crime


Vandal urinates on church statues, smashes them in possible hate crime

A vandal urinated on two religious statues outside a Brooklyn church before smashing them on the ground in an incident police are investigating as a possible hate crime, authorities said Monday.

Video released by police shows the man with his hands near his pants standing by the relics shortly before 4 a.m. Sunday in front of Our Lady of Consolation Roman Catholic Church on Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg.

The footage again shows the man with his hands near his waistband, when he suddenly pushes one angel statue to the ground, partially smashing it — and then does the same to another.

He then calmly walks away, heading south on Metropolitan Avenue, police said.

“Those broken statues were found [by] our pastor around 6 a.m. Sunday,” said Father Andrzej Wasko, a vicar at the church, which is largely attended by the Polish community.

Wasko said he did not recognize the brute seen in the video, whom cops described as being approximately 30 years old, 6 feet tall and 190 pounds.

The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the incident.

This wasn’t the first time — or the second time — the statutes were vandalized, Wasko added.

Most recently, a “different person” toppled the statues “a few months ago,” he said.

One of the angels was also destroyed in 2016, when a group of suspects began climbing on the platform on which the relics were placed — sending the statue crashing to the ground.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
