Freeport, NY – Disturbing messages of hate are emerging on Long Island as anti-Semitic flyers have been found outside homes, and it’s not the first time this summer authorities have seen this kind of hate spread in this way.
The anti-Jewish flyers could be seen on a street in Freeport on Monday, leaving neighbors in disgust. Ironically, one of the flyers was actually left in front of a school, whose fence is decorated with the message “kindness matters”.
“One in my driveway. One at the neighbor’s and one in his driveway. I picked them up and threw them away,” Paul Cannino said.
Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder said about 100 flyers were left in the city.
“You’re trying to cause division in our communities, trying to cause harm and fear in our communities,” Ryder said.
