Police investgate swastikas carved into cars in Brighton

Boston Police report three swastikas have been etched into cars parked along Chestnut Hill Avenue by Chiswick Road in recent days.

Although none of the cars' owners is Jewish, police are treating the incidents as anti-Semitism; the culprit could face civil-rights charges. The area has a high concentration of Jewish residents.

Regardless of one's ethnicity or religion, such incidents are an assault on the community as well as the diversity that is embraced by the City of Boston.
