We live in a scary world. With news of anti-semitic symbols and other vandalism at Amity that is making some of our young people uneasy, it is disturbing to find out that vandalism at High Plains may also have sent the same message of hatred in this community which also has a large Jewish population.
Orange Live reached out to Police Chief Robert Gagne for some reassurances.
Gagne confirmed that there was indeed vandalism at High Plains, and there have been eggings and spray painting incidents done by Amity kids, but some of the information that’s being shared has been misconstrued.
“There has been vandalism, which is bad,” he said. “But there were no swastikas, or anything anti-Semitic here in Orange, which is good.”
Gagne said Amity is taking the right steps, working to bring an end to this negative situation.
