Vandals scrawl anti-cop graffiti across lower Manhattan courthouse
Vandals attacked a lower Manhattan courthouse early Tuesday, spray-painting anti-cop vitriol across its front.
“Euthanize Swine,” “You f–k ass cops are getting abolished” and “ALL COPS LIE” were among the messages scrawled in red, green blue, black and yellow paint on the Surrogate’s Courthouse at 31 Chambers St., video showed.
The graffiti also included drawings of pigs with x’s over their eyes, as well as more general messages such as “We’re taking what we deserve, ””God is black” and “Lenape Lands.”
Cops said they took 18-year-old Dominique Tombeau of Brooklyn into custody around 2:40 a.m. and later charged him with scrawling at least some of the graffiti on the courthouse, which hears cases such as those involving wills.
The vandalism apparently occurred several hours before a tense standoff between police and Occupy City Hall protesters near City Hall over the group’s demand to slash the police budget.
