Racist fliers scattered in Williamsburg prompts NYPD probe

Fliers containing swastikas and racial slurs scattered around Williamsburg are being investigated as a possible hate crime.



Some images on the flier imply that the holocaust was a myth.



Police say they got a call about a person on a motorcycle with a black helmet distributing the fliers near Lee Avenue Thursday night.



The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the incident. They are asking anyone with information about the fliers to call police.
