The Sheriff’s Office is investigating a racial slur that was painted on the passenger side of an African American airman’s car.
According to Lieutenant Dennis Ivey Jr., air police based out of Langley Air Force Base police responded to the victim’s home on the 20 block of Atlantis Lane, on November 30, to inform the resident about the slur. He was asleep at the time.
Deputies say the victim, who is a member of the United States Air Force, then filed a report with the sheriff’s office.
“This is a very appalling situation,” says Lieutenant Ivey. “It’s gotta be just gut-wrenching, it scares you first of all, and then it’s just hurtful, it’s hateful, I am very offended that someone would do this.”
Ivey says the painted phrase said “f*** n******.” They also wrote “KKK.” (WTKR – CBS)
