‘MS-13’ Vandals Deface Vietnam Memorial

World Net Daily, December 31, 2007

Vandals claiming a relationship to the violent Hispanic street gang MS-13 defaced a Vietnam War memorial in Connecticut with graffiti, angering local veterans.

“Kill whites MS 13” were among the threatening words spray-painted on the Vietnam War Memorial at Long Wharf, Conn., reported WTNH-TV in New Haven.


Police are investigating whether the vandalism is the work of the violent MS-13 gang.


An attorney prosecuting MS-13 members said the gang follows the “rape, kill and control” philosophy,” using guns, knives and machetes. The group traffics in drugs, weapons and humans. Last summer, police in the Boston area conducted a major round-up of MS 13 members.

New Haven police told WTNH they have not documented any MS-13 activity in the city.
