Young Hispanic responsible for hate daubs

A suburban Washington teenager reportedly has confessed to police that he vandalized a local synagogue.

Sebastian Espinoza-Carranza, 18, told detectives this week in Gaithersburg, Maryland, that he carried out the April 7 attack on the Shaare Torah Synagogue because he disliked the Jewish people who worshipped there, the WTOP radio station reported.

Espinoza-Carranza painted swastikas and other racist graffiti on the walls of the Conservative synagogue, according to WTOP, which cited law enforcement sources familiar with the case. He was charged under the state’s hate crimes law.

The teen was identified from a surveillance video taken at a 7-Eleven near the synagogue in which he appeared before and after the vandalism, according to the report.


He was apparently part of an Hispanic gang in the action.  Subsequently denied being racist.  No apparent KKK or political connections.  I'm guessing that he will be voting Democrat, though -- like most Hispanics.
