Vandalized Veterans Memorial in Wallingford Park – NBC Connecticut


Police are investigating the vandalism of a veterans memorial in a park in Wallingford.

The Dutton Park memorial has been vandalized twice in recent days, according to police chief John Ventura.

Photos posted on Facebook showed a swastika and profanities spray-painted on the memorial. A second photo showed the word “Die” written on the memorial in spray paint.

This memorial is meant to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect the freedoms we enjoy every day,” Ventura said in a statement. “The deliberate and shameful attack on the memory of these heroes will not be tolerated, not more than hateful rhetoric. to which members of the Wallingford community were exposed.”
