Police investigate possible hate crime in Jewish New York neighborhood

Police are investigating what authorities say could be a hate crime in a Jewish section of Brooklyn, New York, after three cars were set ablaze and anti-Semitic graffiti was scrawled across park benches.

Police said they responded to emergency calls pertaining to the case early Friday morning.

The city's Hate Crimes Task Force is "actively investigating the twisted person or people who attacked cars, benches, and a sidewalk on a block of Ocean Parkway early this morning," New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said in a statement.

    There's no need to fear! Underdog is here!
    when criminals in this world appear
    and break the laws that they should fear
    and frighten all who see or hear
    the cry goes up both far and near
    for Underdog! Underdog! Underdog! Underdog!

    speed of lightning, roar of thunder
    fighting all who rob or plunder
    Underdog. Underdog!

    when in this world the headlines read
    of those whose hearts are filled with greed
    who rob and steal from those who need
    to right this wrong with blinding speed
    goes Underdog! Underdog! Underdog! Underdog!

    speed of lightning, roar of thunder
    fighting all who rob or plunder
    Underdog. Underdog!

    I sang it. I'll admit it!
    Looking at the words, though: pretty intense song for kids, I think...

    Didn't Wally Cox do his voice?

    I noticed Simon Barr Sinister has been spouting his bitter paranoid delusions all over the place today.

    I think he was usually in the top row. Cliff Arquette was in the middle a lot. We have a channel that carries a lot of old shows. I'll have to check to see if it's on.

    What about Paul Lynde? Wasn't he the center square?
    Before he died, of course.
