Apparently if you spray paint the word “Slayer” along with a pentagram, it may be—at least momentarily—considered a hate crime.
Wicks Park, which is home to the Commack South Little League, was vandalized Tuesday night, police said.
One of the buildings on the town park property was marked with black graffiti.
Police were initially investigating the vandalism as a hate crime after a resident called in the incident, but officials then realized the markings, which included a pentagram, were symbols from the band, Slayer.
According to Cherrybombed, a thrash metal-lovin’ police officer had to set everyone straight and “correctly identified the graffiti as an illegal homage to the band Slayer.”
No, this isn’t a joke. This is official Slayer merchandise, available from backstreet-merch.com, and a snip at only £49.99. It’s only available in the UK, mind you, but if you’re really really nice, Santa might be good to you.
Apparently, International Day of Slayer 2012 is here!
On June 6th, Hessians worldwide come together to do something upon which we can all agree - listening to Slayer! Finally, one of the most dismissed cultural groups in the world has a holiday to call its own. Join us in our cause to stand unified in our celebration of metal music and let us prove to the rest of society that we too have a voice.
