Default Vandals scrawl anti-cop graffiti across lower Manhattan courthouse


Vandals scrawl anti-cop graffiti across lower Manhattan courthouse

Vandals attacked a Lower Manhattan courthouse early Tuesday, spray-painting anti-cop vitriol across its front.

“Euthanize Swine,” “You f–k ass cops are getting abolished” and “ALL COPS LIE” were among the messages scrawled in red, green, blue, black and yellow paint on the Surrogate’s Courthouse at 31 Chambers St., video showed.

The graffiti also included drawings of pigs with x’s over their eyes, as well as more general messages such as “We’re taking what we deserve, ””God is black” and “Lenape Lands.”

Cops said they took 18-year-old Dominique Tombeau of Brooklyn into custody around 2:40 a.m. and later charged him with scrawling at least some of the graffiti on the courthouse, which hears cases such as those involving wills.

The vandalism apparently occurred several hours before a tense standoff between police and Occupy City Hall protesters near City Hall over the group’s demand to slash the police budget.

The face-off briefly turned violent, as a protester was busted for allegedly punching a cop in the head around 5:45 a.m., authorities said.

“There was an assault,” Chief of Department Terence Monahan told 1010 WINS. “I believe a minor injury to the police officer.”

Joseph Konnaris, a 20-year-old Queens resident, was arrested for assault on a police officer, according to officials.

But tensions subsided somewhat as the sun rose, with the hundreds of protesters digging back in outside City Hall.

“At least twice a day they get Whole Foods deliveries,” said one cop keeping watch over the plaza. “This morning it was a big delivery of bagels and coffee from Dunkin. They usually get the Whole Foods for lunch and dinner, at least the last three days I’m here. They got cell charging stations, a satellite dish and free Wi-Fi.”

The group has indicated that if their demands are not met in the city’s budget for the next fiscal year, due Tuesday, that they’re prepared to stay for the long haul.

Monahan told 1010 WINS that the cops aren’t going anywhere either.

“Right now, it’s under control,” he said. “They’re back on the plaza and we’ll just have to keep monitoring it as the day goes on.”
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.
