I haven’t given any coverage to the Omri Casspi mural defacing because I don’t want to indirectly give it attention. It’s a heinous act that is disgusting in every way.
But just because I don’t want to cover it on this space doesn’t mean you shouldn’t read great pieces about it elsewhere. Tzvi Twersky of SLAM posted this fantastic piece on the mural and incident.
Tomorrow, on one of the most introspective holidays, I’ll spend the day at synagogue studying my faults, flaws and sins. Thousand of miles away, Omri Casspi will, too.
At some point in their lives, whether they’re apprehended or not, hopefully the swastika-painting Sacramento criminals reassess themselves as well.
