Congressman Berman released the following statement in response to reports of vandalism in Sherman Oaks, where at least three homes were desecrated with the Nazi symbol of the Swastika:
"I am angered and saddened by this act of vandalism in our community," said Rep. Berman. "Bigotry has no place in the Valley or any neighborhood. This symbol of hate opens very raw wounds for these families, as well as my own, and will not be tolerated.
"We stand together against this ugly act and will support our law enforcement officials in their quest to bring the perpetrators of this hate crime to justice."
