Swastikas were discovered spray-painted in red on a historical marker in James Madison Park early Wednesday morning.
According to Madison Police Department officials, a passerby said the graffiti was not there at 10 p.m. the night before and without any surveillance footage in the area, police cannot pinpoint the crime’s exact time. Another individual alerted them at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday to the swastikas, as well as “TRUMP RULES,” and “ANTIFA SUCKS” sprayed across the monument.
