Sacramento police are hoping any possible witnesses will come forward after a mural of Sacramento Kings player Omri Casspi was defaced with a swastika for the second time in a little more than a week.

Police say after a swastika was found painted on the mural of Casspi on Sept. 8, the mural was found defaced again Thursday morning.

Casspi, who is Jewish, is the only NBA player born in Israel.

The most recent incident comes after a $1,000 reward was offered by the Anti-Defamation League for information leading to an arrest after the mural was defaced the first time.

Joe Maloof, co-owner of the Sacramento Kings, released a statement Thursday describing the vandalism as "sickening acts of intolerance."

Maloof says the team is matching the reward offered by the Anti-Defamation League.

Unfortunately there's really no control over the media. If the local news got pics of it then it has a very good chance of making national news.

What's really sad is that it's likly a bunch of stupid teenagers who think it's a prank. Just wait until they get charged with a federal hate crime....

Exactly the opposite actually. It's one person out of 400,000 doing this.

This what Casspi had to say:

"It's been all over the news over here," said Casspi. "Everybody's talking about it. It's hurtful to think that this is 2010, and there are still people like that out there. I almost don't know what to say. It's probably just some idiot who wants some publicity. But I know the people in Sacramento, and they have been wonderful to me. I know they must feel bad about this. Same thing with the Kings. I'll just let the police handle this and focus on having a great season."

So, how many people on these forums keep up to date with the Israeli/Palestinian peace process on here? Im just curious, as people said stuff like F Ignorance, and when will Racism end, or How could someone do this to an innocent person.

F'd Up situation over there, but delving more into it this past week, and Time Magazines article this week, it makes me wonder whether our support is going to the right people.

Just my two cents. bored until football this weekend and the bulls in Oct/Nov.

You shouldnt mix Jewis People with what ISRALY GOVERNMENT does.

Do i agree with what Israel officials do with Palestinians? Not at all.

But that does nto mean i have to agree with brainless spoiled children playing to be Nazis doing stupid , distasteful Stuff.

very true, Zionism does not = Judaism.

But unfortunately many Jews think that if you are against Israel, then you are going against their religion.

I think everyone is welcome there, by and large. It's a kickass city. I live in Mid-Michigan, and this place is thick with racist a-holes. You find them everywhere. Mostly doing hilariously ignorant stuff like pumping rap music at full volume in a car with a confederate flag sticker in the back window. Good stuff.
