Obscene, threatening graffiti sprayed on homes in wealthy SF community

Bill de Blasio has an airtight alibi. So does Barack Obama. The New York mayor was busy at City Hall, strategizing over how to skip the Upper East Side of Manhattan the next time there’s a snowstorm, and the president was busy playing golf or some such.

So neither one could have had a hand in the graffiti spray-painted onto the multi-million dollar homes in one of the Bay Area’s wealthiest communities last Sunday. Their figurative fingerprints, however, are all over these crimes.

CBS SF Bay Area reports:

Many of the messages said “F*** the 1%,” a reference to the income inequality between the top one percent of Americans and the rest of the population.


One of the writings had a more threatening tone: “kill people.”

The FBI have been called in to assist the Atherton, Calif., police in attempting to get to the bottom of these acts of vandalism. “We go out and collect evidence and interview neighbors,” Atherton Police Lt. Joe Wade is quoted as saying. “We look for anything we can to lead us to the person who did this.”
