Police arrest two vandals for scrawling Swastikas on Synagogue

Long Island Police charged John Rocissano, 20, and Matthew Felicetti, 17, both of Manhasset, with vandalizing the Reconstructionist Synagogue in Plandome Saturday when the two were caught spray painting Swastikas, Jewish slurs and other anti-Semitic graffiti on the building, as well as on a school bus parked at Roslyn High School and a Roslyn Estates home.

The two vandals were to be arraigned Sunday on several counts of aggravated harassment and criminal mischief.

Rabbi Lee Friedlander told reporters, "This was an act against Jews, but it could be an act against people of color, or people who are gay." The Rabbi said it was the first time anyone had vandalized the Synagogue with anti-Semitic graffiti.

Police said some of the Synagogue's windows were also busted and that the owner of the home in Roslyn found three Swastikas spray painted on his front door.

What a maroon! Doesn't anti-Semitism bother him?
