Sandy Hook Playground Vandalism Investigated

In April, as part of the Sandy Ground project, the purple playground was opened in Hartford, Connecticut in honor of Ana Grace Marquez-Greene, one of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting. But this weekend, almost a month after it opened, the park was vandalized.

Writing was scrawled on the playground sign, reading “BEKS” and “To Sandy Hook” with a peace sign. Police believe the incident happened late Saturday night.

The purple park, decorated with her artwork, was opened on what would have been Ana’s eighth birthday. It is one of 26 playgrounds being built for each of the victims of the shooting.

“It’s just a way she lives on, and as a parent who’s lost a child so young, you do want your children to live on. And this is a way for us to do that,” said Ana’s mom Nelba Marquez-Greene.

Bill Lavin, founder of The Sandy Ground: Where Angels Play Foundation, said, “Give a little window of joy to these families that have suffered so much is our privilege, our blessing.”

The shooting, which happened on December 14, 2012, took the lives of 20 children and 6 adult staff members. The shooter, 20-year old Adam Lanza, shot and killed his mother before driving to the school, then proceeded to shoot himself in the head as first responders arrived at the scene.

The incident was the deadliest mass shooting at a high school or grade school in U.S. history.

Sandy Hook Elementary School was demolished starting October 2013. In March of this year, Newtown city officials announced the new design for the new school. The only remaining remnant of the original school will be the flagpole.

Also happening last weekend, another Sandy Ground Project playground was added in West Beach Stamford, Connecticut in honor of Jesse Lewis.

Police in Hartford are investigating the purple playground vandalism and who was behind it.

As of today, the graffiti has been scrubbed clean.

    Some people are just spine-less ,heartless and just plain scum bags!! R.I.P. To all the victims of this and all senceless crimes…

    • Brian

      there is no such thing as moral obligation you fucking idiot

    • Adam S. Riggleman

      There ARE no victims. Well, except for the people who actually donated to these SCAM artists.

  • kimberlyclark

    Republicans hate their own grandchildren. They don’t care what kind of world they leave behind. Why won’t the Republicans pass maintenance for out crumbling roads and bridges? Because they hate America. And you Fox Fans on your Dell computers let them swindle you because they bait you with racial profiling, abortion lies (they don’t really care), Christian dominance, hate for gays. They are strangling the middle class on their own hate. Mitt and the boys don’t care cuz their money is in Switzerland and the Cayman Islands. Democrats love their grandchildren and hate the world you Dell-Dolts are being tricked into creating because your hate is greater than you I.Q.

    • Guest

      anyone told to to f yourself today?

      i’m probably not the first

      • kimberlyclark

        You are the first to type that out on your Dell. Don’t you love your Grandchildren? Maybe your mother didn’t love you.

        • mike .

          your mama did……

      • kimberlyclark

        Why don’t you do it? Flirt!

        • Daniel Scott

          Yeah. The Republicans are the problem. Let’s stop labeling it to a specific party. The Government, no matter what party they claim they affiliate with, are destroying America. ESPECIALLY the one in the Oval Office as we speak now. The Democratic party hasn’t done anything of worth in the last 6 years so careful in your glass house over there.

          • kimberlyclark

            At least I finally have affordable health insurance in my glass house. Now if the minimum wage is raised we will see upturn in consumer spending and a drop in crime rates. Win/win. some business will lay off workers out of spite, but they will hire them back. for 10 a fast food workers sells hundreds of dollars of products. Pray to God we reverse the 2% Oligarchy that economists predict. Real economists, not Fox News.

          • Adrienne

            Your truly an idiot.

          • kimberlyclark

            See the hate you spout? Because I want health care and fair salaries for all Americans. You think I’m an idiot? When the stock market crashes, again, and it will, under another republican president, like it did before, will you blame Obama? You have yours, everyone else is lazy. I think you are the idiot. A truly nasty selfish idiot

    • guest12

      You are so right! Here is 10 reasons I vote Democrat…..

      #10. I vote Democrat because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I’ve decided to marry my German Shepherd.

      #9. I vote Democrat because I believe oil companies’ profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon at 15% isn’t.

      #8. I vote Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

      #7. I vote Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

      #6. I vote Democrat because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves. I am also thankful that we have a 911 service that get police to your home in order to identify your body after a home invasion.

      #5. I vote Democrat because I’m not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive and comfy.

      #4. I vote Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away Social Security from those who paid into it.

      #3. I vote Democrat because I believe that businesses should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrat Party sees fit.

      #2. I vote Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

      . . .And the #1 reason I vote Democrat is because I think it’s better to pay $Billions for oil to people who hate us, and not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher or fish here in America. We don’t care about the beetles, gophers or fish in those other countries

      • Nicole Naples

        Amazing.

        • kimberlyclark

          Amazing Hate how sweet the sound to thrill a wretch like you!

          • guest12

            and Im the psycho? hahahaha

          • Nicole Naples

            What he/she said was not hateful, it was fact based and informative. At best you can call it opinion but if we are going off the logic which I am sure you falsely preach then, “Judge Ye Not” which…PS, is all you’re doing here.

          • kimberlyclark

            I’m not a Christian. I do judge evil tax-evading environment polluting, misogynistic, racist, sexist homophobic frappe haters. I think the new testament has a beautiful philosophy, Jesus never once mentioned gays, but Christian = Hate has become accepted as the norm because of you peoples behavior. But I judge you for being stupid and hateful and I hope you don’t have gay children. Teen suicide is high among gay children of Christians, like Marie Osmond and Rick Warren.

      • kimberlyclark

        Hate hate and more hate. Typical Dell-typing Republican psycho. I pity your children and grandchildren. Imagine growing up in a home with no love.

        • guest12

          Typical Free loading liberal…. Don’t choke on your Starbucks frappe…. Thanks for ruining our once great nation with your Obama votes..

          • kimberlyclark

            How dare you call me a free loader. I paid for my frappe. And I TIPPED the hardworking barista. Tipping, you should try it sometime, it brings joy to my heart. I guess you have to have one (heart) to get the full effect.

          • guest12

            No! NO! How dare you! You don’t go around telling people they hate there grandchildren because they are Republican. You should be ashamed of yourself. Is it because most of us are religious people who believe in the teachings of christ or is it because we find it immoral to abort a childs life??? and yet to you we hate our loved ones? I am confused to see where your logic is?

          • kimberlyclark

            I should have been more clear, I know how slow Republicans are, by denying the existence of Global Warming and continuing to drive gas guzzling monster SUVs you are polluting the environment beyond repair. You don’t care if your grandchildren will have air to breath, you’ll be gone with a nice funeral paid for out of your tax-free Caymen Island funds. If you loved your grandchildren you would care about Global Warming. Duh!

          • mike .

            keep hugging the trees

          • guest12

            and PS Im not the one who started the insults…

          • kimberlyclark

            I”m not insulting anyone. I’m campaigning for social change. I’m trying to fight racism and sexism and homophobia and the destruction of the environment. You are trying to fight frappes? I guess.

          • Nicole Naples

            How dare you continue this incessant rant based on assumptions and all encompassing claims when the real topic at hand was the defamation of a playground dedicated to young lives lost. You’re words are powerfully proving who here has the real ignorance and hatred in their hearts.

          • kimberlyclark

            I hate people that don’t see that the murder of 26 children is a sign that maybe some of the 13,000 gun deaths each year could be prevented by gun CONTROL legislation. I doubt if you agree. I hope you don’t have children who turn out to be gay.

          • guest12

            So lets see if I got this correct…. You believe people can’t govern themselves… but you believe some people can govern hundreds of millions of other people?

          • kimberlyclark

            I believe 325 million people can’t govern themselves. Impossible. Blood everywhere. I believe in a representative government where the people are represented by surrogates they believe in and the population is reflected in votes, not re-jiggered right wing districts, or land over people. Can the people govern themselves when Wyoming has 2 senators for 1 million people and California has 38 million. No, people can’t govern themselves in a minority rule situation, like Rwanda. It can’t simmer forever. I believe YOU can’t not pay taxes and make the rules for 325 million people. I stand by that reasonable intelligent statement. Don’t respond with cliches that lace substance. Your cattle cant’ graze on my lawn, dude. Do you support marriage equality? I’m I wrong about that too? I don’t think you do. I’m the long island medium rare.

          • kimberlyclark

            I believe that you are an anarchist and think rules are for everyone else but you can live independent of laws. Like George Zimmerman. You are probably the kind of guy who doesn’t like people parking in front of your house because that’s “your” street even though the government you hate built and maintains it. You are a hands out republican hypocrite. No government, no taxes, no regulations, we live independently, and you are the first to complain if there is a pot hole on your street

          • Adam S. Riggleman

            George Zimmerman isn’t real.

          • Nicole Naples

            Do not place your hopes upon my life. My child can grow to become whatever he wants. These things, his sexual orientation, career choice, political party, environmental beliefs, fiscal expectations, social standards….those are all HIS choices. Love from a parent isn’t dictated by ones political party. Where did you even get this outrageous claim? Two of my immediate family members are gay and do you want to know how many times it even crossed my mind? It seems the “defenders” of sexual freedom are the ones incapable of seeing the MASSIVE change and development this country has made in the way of acceptance. If gun control legislation could truly prevent murder then, Kimberly Clark, sign me up! Do you really believe that citizens who stand for the second amendment are PRO murder? God bless your ignorance. That day personally affected my life, my family. My opinion on this matter has NOTHING to do with my son, NOTHING to do with these poor children and NOT A DAMN THING to do with sexual orientation or which SUV I drive.

          • kimberlyclark

            Gun control saves lives, SUVs cause global warming, it’s funny that you think I’m a radical. These are documented facts. Maybe they haven’t reached your cul de sac yet. But they are true and people have good heart, want change.

          • kimberlyclark

            People don’t choose to be gay. Really, they don’t.

          • mike .

            when you get mugged let me know how gun control worked for ya

          • kimberlyclark

            What prison can I reach you in? I’ve lived in New York from Washington Heights to Orchard and Canal, Hollywood and San Francisco and I’ve never been mugged, but I’ll let you know when it happens. Please include your cell number.

          • Adam S. Riggleman

            there were no murders.

          • kimberlyclark

            This is going to be good. How do you rationalize, sir, that there were no murders when 26 people were shot to death, killed in cold blood. Please explain, “there were no murders.” you’ve really got me intrigued.

          • Adam S. Riggleman

            nobody was shot at the school. There was no blood. There was a lot of asbestos, mold and algae though. Way more than is legally allowed. But that is because Sandy Hook was not, and had not been an operational school since 2008. Adam Lanza never existed, in fact the only evidence Adam Lanza ever did exist is a death certificated that was issued one day BEFORE the supposed shooting took place.

          • kimberlyclark

            I believe the vandalism was carried out by the NRA and racists against gun control and the billion dollar gun and ammo lobby. I’m sorry, I thought that was implicit, I didn’t know I needed to spell it out ofr you. The vandalism was a protest by people who want No background checks, NO registration, NO way to trace them for their crimes. Is that clear?

          • Adam S. Riggleman

            How are you rationalizing this?? What does Race have to do with anything?

          • guest12

            Why do you assume that Im a sexist, racist, homophobe when none of the above is true…. Thats the thing with you liberals, you have all these assumptions about Republicans that are hate driven… I know MSNBC told you these things but thats just inaccurate.. I am for restoring american morals, and certainly have no concern for frappes or “Dell computers”….. Your delusional way of thinking is whats ruining America. And even though global warming isn’t one of our top concerns at the moment, it doesn’t mean Im in complete denial over it. I just look at it as a moderate concern…. but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do what we can…. (recycle, reuse, restore…..etc…..) I believe those are all good things for the planet….. Now stop flapping your mouth with your nonsense.

          • kimberlyclark

            I”m psychic, you know, like the Long Island Medium? I assume when you say “restoring American Morals, that you oppose equal rights for gays, and please don’t say we want to force people to accept us and get special rights. I want to same rights as you and I know you will never accept me. You can’t change what is in a dark heart, but you can change behavior. I want to work, live, marry without threat of being fired, evicted, losing my children, because I’m gay. All this is legal in over 30 states. So were my assumptions wrong? Are “some of your best friends black? do you let them use your towels?

          • guest12

            And I want to obtain my freedom without the Government telling me what I can and can’t do. And I consider myself a more Libertarian Republican so No you deserve your life, liberty, and pursuit of Happiness just like I do, and just like everyone does. But this logic that I am some racist, heartless person has to stop. You say you are against hate, and yet your spewing it all over the place with your hateful comments. and when I said restore American values i meant turning away from the socialist nation we are becoming. We are becoming a police state, and that is a form of tyranny. And yes your assumptions were incorrect

          • kimberlyclark

            An old gay line “your slip is showing” if you really think we are a socialist nation “because we have a post office and fee hungry children?” And a police state ( the criminals have more automatic weapons that the cops) I think you are a lost cost. Don’t pay taxes, build a panic room, get off the grid. Chill.

          • tbird6175

            Mind if I jump in? While I agree that kimberlyclark’s rant is a little nutty, guest you have to realize that conservatives do the exact same thing to liberals. You lump us all into gun grabbers, entitled, lazy bums and I’m sick of that label! So you can’t get pissed because both sides do it. I know it’s all BS and so should you. There are very intelligent people on both sides and the majority are NOT the extremists. We need to all realize this and stop attacking each other. It accomplishes nothing.

          • kimberlyclark

            My assumptions are wrong but your MSNBC conspiracy world that you live in is right? Get up out of your lazy boy recliner, turn of Bill O’Reilly and go outside, see what the real world is like. You live in a bubble of hate.

          • roadrashh

            Fuck homos. Don’t like that opinion? I don’t give a shit.

          • kimberlyclark

            No, if you want to fuck homos, that is none of my business. I accept your “choice”

          • kimberlyclark

            Could I get extra foam with that please. Now!

        • mike .

          keep suckling on the tit

    • Nicole Naples

      In what disillusion fantasy island you’re spending your afternoon on….does the above comment even remotely pertain to the abhorrent acts this article highlights?

    • lulu80

      Thats gotta be the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. We hate our Grandchildren because of our political beliefs? Typical LIberal. If you don’t agree with them you are a horrible emotionless monster… get real.

    • Elliott

      For someone talking about hatred, you sure are spreading it. Hmmm…Kimberlyclark…makers of toilet tissue. Now go wipe that $hit out of your mouth.

      • kimberlyclark

        I was wrong, not all Republicans are hateful. You are hateful and stupid and threatened and the minority in this great land of OURS>

        • Elliott

          You are so filled with hate. You are going to explode from it. May God bless your soul.

          • kimberlyclark

            My soul is filled with love, already, but thanks for your concern. You believe in God. Really? in 2014? After Charles Krautheimer accused Hillary Clinton of faking the Benghazi flu and she had a blood clot in her brain and he never apologized? Wouldn’t a God smite that kind of evil?

    • Audrey Williams

      kimberlyclark- You seem like a nice, open-minded person. I bet you’re fun at parties. Say, you remind me of our biased, bigot of a government; our left-winged, charisma-craving media; and our brainwashed, lazy majority of society.

      • kimberlyclark

        funny you use the term brain washed as you followed Reagan off a financial cliff and now you are following Paul Ryan off another. The hazy future of not laws and no taxes will ruin our country, even your nice clean neighborhood. People will start losing their homes again ulnder a congress that blocks all progressive legislation, except the kind that gives slacker yuppies their granite counter tops cuz they lied about their income. Mortgage fraud is what is bankrupting the country. But you expect the government to always be there to protect the spa tub you never could afford.

      • kimberlyclark

        Audrey, I’m flattered that you would like me to come to your party, but I’m in a relationship, and even though I have great legs, I think you should just get over me. Friends?

  • Cyber Slammer

    Should have spray painted FALSE FLAG on the playground because that’s what it was.

  • roadrashh

    What the fuck does “BEKS” even mean?

  • Rich Cranium

    Nobody wants to know why they refused to let EMTs into the school? Why they didn’t call for lifestar? There’s more going on here and were worried about graffiti? Something is very wrong here.

    • kimberlyclark

      Something is wrong in your cranium that you don’t care about child murders because of out of control gun violence.

      • taurusjwb

        Ok Kimmy, you shill; shut it.

        • kimberlyclark

          Open it, your mind., I”m as real as real gets, I’m not being paid by Focus on the Family or one of the REAL shill employers, I’m just a real Midwestern girl with a smart mind and a heart of gold.

          • taurusjwb

            Okay Kimmy, contradict much….for someone who has a penchant for excoriating those who question the Sandy Hook drill, you claim to have an open mind….talk about cognitive dissidence.

  • Adrienne

    I get that this playground was made for a child in something that was horribly tragic but there are so many more important things going on in the world why are we focused on graffiti? Clearly people need help in this world but there are people suck as that kimberlyclark bitch spewing hate, she’s probably one of them Wesboro Baptist Church fucks that have no lives.. and yes you can cuss me out kimberlyclark I wont be responding because fighting with you on yahoo would mean I have no life which you clearly dont if you have to sit here and complain about everyone else’s beliefs and lifes, typical liberal, a person with no life so they have to force a crappy life on everyone else… anyway back to what’s important in life.

    • kimberlyclark

      The Young and the Restless?

  • Audrey Williams

    Sandy Hoax all to enforce gun control. We have a sick government.

    • kimberlyclark

      the death of 26 children was not a hoax. That is the most evil remark I have ever heard. Burn baby burn. It’s the sickos like you, lurking in the shadows with your guns, that I am drawing out today. Shame shame shame on you.

  • taurusjwb

    Are we supposed to believe this nonsense?
