Police: Racist graffiti found inside MTA buses
Gov. Andrew Cuomo is directing the State Police Hate Crimes Unit to investigate racist graffiti found on two MTA buses.
Police say the graffiti was found Friday inside the two Brooklyn buses, one of them a B13 bus.
Officials say they believe both crimes happened sometime Friday morning.
News 12 Brooklyn is told that no arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.
Gov. Cuomo has since stated that he is disgusted by the language of the graffiti, and that New York has a zero-tolerance policy for racism, discrimination, or hate.
The MTA has also said in a statement that, “there is absolutely no place in our system for hate. We immediately removed the bus from service, and we are working with NYPD to investigate this incident."
