Police: Anti-Semitic graffiti found at Simpson Street subway station
A man is accused of drawing anti-Semitic graffiti at the Simpson Street subway station on two different occasions just six days apart.
Police say the suspect was caught on surveillance video drawing the graffiti on both Oct. 8 around 9 p.m. and on Oct. 14 just before 8 p.m.
MTA riders say it's frustrating that people can't get along with one another.
"I think everyone should get along worldwide," said Nellie Santiago. "We are people, we need each other but a lot of people don't have that in their hearts."
Rabbi Avi Weiss of the Hebrew Institute of Riverdale says he couldn't forgive the man who drew the graffiti, but he would try to understand.
He encourages people not to be passive when it comes to hate crimes, but to fight back the bad deeds with good deeds.
"We have a beautiful expression in Judaism," Weiss says. "'A little bit of light pushes out the darkness.'"
