White-supremacist vandalism at black church near Maumelle

Posted By on Tue, Dec 4, 2012 at 1:19 PM

Vandals hit a predominately-black Baptist church near Palarm Creek just north of Maumelle yesterday, spray-painting white-supremacist graffiti — including a swastika, "KKK" and the twin lighting bolts of the Nazi SS — on the exterior of the church.

According to a report by the Pulaski County Sheriff's Department, deputies were dispatched to Mount Pilgrim Baptist Church at 26622 Highway 365 North last night just before 9 p.m. at the request of the pastor, who had discovered the vandalism. Damages to the sanctuary, which the report says included broken windows, were estimated at $8,000.

According to the report, a liquor store across the street from the church has at least one camera with "a fairly direct view of the church," so one can only hope that these spraycanning knuckleheads will be caught faster than you can say "Sieg Heil".
