Three males face hate crime costs after trashing a Queens cemetery, concentrating on the graves of Asian-People with racist slurs, police stated early Tuesday.
Cops busted the trio on Monday, charging them in an Aug. 15 vandalism spree that left forty toppled headstones, and 15 damaged marble vaults contained in the Cypress Hills cemetery.
A few of the headstones have been spray-painted with slurs like ‘Ching Chong” and F— Jackie Chan,” whereas the tombs and vaults within the cemetery’s memorial Abbey mausoleum have been desecrated with racial slurs and the phrases “F— NYPD,” cops stated.
Additionally they sprayed what seemed to be nicknames and graffiti tags, similar to Damo, Dedey and Blur, cops stated.
