Swastika Spray-painted On Special Needs Playground

A swastika and other symbols were spray-painted on a playground for children with special needs in Georgia.

A pentagram and images of genitals were also painted at In Harmony Pediatric Therapy, which is currently building a large new play area at its new building in Cherokee County.

“It’s horrible, it’s everything we’re not for. We are for kids, we try to be the sunshine in their day because these parents and these kids have a lot going on,” co-owner Jennifer Puckett told the local TV station Fox 5 Atlanta.

The organization offers speech, physical, occupational and physical therapy. It has now installed security cameras, and county police will be patrolling the area more often.
