A former New York City police officer was arrested on Sunday for spray-painting anti-Semitic graffiti on cars and buildings in a Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn.
The ex-cop, Michael Setiawan, was picked up by police Saturday night after calls about Swastikas and other anti-Semitic graffiti appearing in Borough Park, Brooklyn. Borough Park Shomrim, a neighborhood watch group, shared a video with a Jewish news website of Setiawan spray-painting a door. He has be charged with criminal mischief and hate crime.
Setiawan was a police officer for two years before leaving the force in 2007 for unspecified reasons. Since then, he has been arrested six times, but the charges against him were sealed.
