California police investigating Catholic-school vandalism as 'hate crime'
May 26, 2010
Vandals attacked a parish school in Maywood, California, writing "666" on the wall, desecrating a crucifix, and driving a knife into an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Police said that the incident appeared clearly to be motivated by anti-Catholic sentiment, and thus to fit the definition of a 'hate crime.'
