MS-13 Vandalized New Haven Vietnam War Memorial?

Via Bryan, there’s this from WTNH Connecticut. A Vietnam War Memorial in New Haven was spray painted in orange with the words “Kill whites MS 13″. MS 13 referring to the deadly international gang which has spread across the U.S. in the last few years.

New Haven (WTNH) _ Veterans are outraged that a war memorial in New Haven has been vandalized.

The Vietnam War Memorial at Long Wharf was spray painted with the threatening words “Kill whites MS 13.”

Seeing this just crushed the veterans we spoke to. The names on that wall that are covered in paint, are the names of those who fought and died for this country in the Vietnam War. Tonight, police are investigating whether this is the work of a violent street gang, but the veterans we spoke to, say whoever they are, aren’t as tough as they might think.

“This irks me. This hurts me deep to my heart,” Vietnam Veteran Emery Linton Sr. said…

Whoever did it sprayed “MS-13? all over the place. According to law enforcement, MS 13 is a violent international gang with roots in El Salvador. Members are involved in drug trafficking, weapons trafficking and even human trafficking and their presence is growing in the U-S. Just this summer, police in the Boston area did a big round-up of MS 13 gang members.

That said, New Haven police say there hasn’t been any documented MS-13 activity so far in the city. But they are investigating this incident.

Bryan points out that vandalism isn’t outside of MS 13’s activities, so it’s entirely possible they’re responsible. I am suspicious, however, as “Kill Whites” written in orange spray paint is a bit, um, unusual. I’m not saying MS 13 didn’t do it, but I’m not laying any money down betting they did. MS 13 has been well-known for its human smuggling activities, and may have worked with Al Qaeda.

Members of the New Haven County Vietnam Veterans Group have vowed to clean up the memorial, with the cost so far unknown. I tried to find a donation link, but it doesn’t appear the group has a website.
