Ear Hustle 411 believes that #AllLivesMatter and it is sad that in this day and age people are still using racial slurs. Unfortunately someone took the time and used a lawn chemical to burn the word N*gger in the front lawn of an African American male.
A Palm Bay man said he wanted to explode in anger when he saw what happened to his front lawn.
Police are now investigating after someone used a chemical to write a racial slur on the man’s lawn in huge letters.
Courtney Gordon’s lawn serviceman pointed it out to him. The N-word, in three-foot letters, on his front lawn.
“I feel like this is a threat to me and my family, so I’m not too happy about it,” Gordon said. “You can see them slowing down when they go by my house, so everybody’s just driving by and reading it.”
Gordon has an idea who might have done it. He notified police, and they’re investigating.
“I have a feeling of who done it. It’s like a group of them, and I leave them to God,” Gordon said. “I’m a big guy, so they’re not gonna come to me and say that. They did it like the way they did it, behind my back and at night.”
Police told Gordon it’s a hard crime to solve, unless someone confesses. If the vandalism is classified as a hate crime, it can be prosecuted as a higher degree of misdemeanor, with an enhanced penalty.
“I feel that they’re a coward, because if they have an issue with me, it’s just best to come and speak to me, and not take it to a level as this,” Gordon said.
Gordon has a surveillance camera, but it wasn’t on at the time. Gordon said it will be from now on.
That section of Gordon’s lawn is being re-sodded, and he said the expense is just part of what’s so upsetting.
