Swastikas that were spray-painted on a road in Lehigh Acres, Florida remained there for weeks before being removed, it has been reported.
The Nazi symbols are understood to have been painted over on Friday, though not before being discovered by local residents.
One resident stated that what bothered him the most was “that someone with that sort of attitude would even be in this area.”
It was also pointed out that the symbols were “down the road” from one of the local school bus stops.
Gerald Reisdorf, another member of the community, said: “I guess they maybe want to send a message. ‘What message?’ I don’t know. You know, to me, it’s childish.
“I’m old enough to know what the second world war is about… all of that stuff, you know. And I thought that was behind us.”
