"That swastika is responsible for the death of six million Jews and millions of others." Police say the Midwood incident sparked a string of anti-Semitic hate crimes around the borough. More hateful images and messages cropped up in apartment buildings around Brooklyn, according to authorities.Police say the investigation into the Midwood incident is still on-going.
