Police say Jewish cemetery vandalism not hate crime

Tuesday, December 29, 2009

Colma police say the recent vandalism at a Jewish cemetery is not a hate crime. They are calling the Christmas Eve incident "malicious mischief and vandalism."

Investigators say there was no evidence the cemetery was targeted for its religion.

Vandals overturned as many as 25 headstones at the Eternal Home Cemetery on El Camino Real.

All of them have now been remounted.
