Racist Graffiti Found at Laconia State School

Antisemitic graffiti was found on the former Laconia State School property over the weekend, prompting an investigation involving the Laconia Police Department, the Civil Rights Unit of the state Attorney General’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

According to the Laconia Daily Sun, the vandalism included swastikas, references to and recruiting information for several white supremacist groups and, notably, threatening language targeting and naming a prominent member of the city’s Jewish community, according to Laconia Police Chief Matt Canfield.
