Pullman man's car tagged with anti-Gay graffiti

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

A man in Pullman, Washington, says somebody wrote hate speech all over his car Wednesday night, after discovering the vandalism when he woke up Thursday morning.

John Kraus said he woke up at 8:30 a.m. to a call from police. They told Kraus that a passerby had called them and told them about his car being vandalized. The police took a report from the caller but wanted to let him know about what happened.

At the time, Kraus told police he was not aware of what happened and that the last time he saw his car, it did not have anything written on it.

Kraus posted about what was written on his car on Facebook.

According to his Facebook post, he believes this had to do with Donald Trump being elected.

Kraus wrote, 'This is what Donald Trump's America looks like&I have no fear in the face of hate! And to the coward who did this, history will not remember you kindly.'

Police said there wasn't anything that proves that the vandalism was politically motivated. Officials said there was nothing written in the report that led them to that conclusion.

Kraus says he believes that the rhetoric used by President-elect Donald Trump during his campaign has made it acceptable to treat minorities as second-class citizens. While he says he does not know who did this, he believes the person obviously knows him.

At the end of the day, Kraus got another call from a Pullman police officer saying there was a group of about 10 people at his car who wanted to help clean it off, and they wanted to know if it was OK. He told the officer it was fine, and all the graffiti was removed. Kraus said an officer then escorted him to the police department, where an officer helped wax off some spots that were not coming off.

Additionally, Kraus said one of his professors at Washington State University saw the damage that had been done to his car and helped rally people together to help clean it.

'It was a bad start to the day, but it keeps getting better and better,' Kraus said.
