Explicit sexual images and messages have now been sprayed on the playground at North Star Elementary School in Anchorage, just a few days after the Mountain View Elementary playground was burned by suspected vandals on July 4.

On July 6, the Watchman received an eyewitness report that the playground equipment at North Star Elementary is covered in lewd drawings and “horrific statements describing the sexual abuse of children.”

“I discovered it last night,” a local mom told the Watchman on July 6. “Today, I got in touch with Anchorage School District who told me they were sorry I had to see such a thing and they take such things very seriously, and they’ll contact Operations, but they probably won’t clean it up until next week because their offices are closed this week.”

The woman also said she contacted the Anchorage Police Department, who thanked her for the call, but said it would probably be next week before the graffiti was removed.

“In my opinion, our community can’t let such a thing stand until next week,” the woman said. “How many kids will be exposed to the graphic images and graphic descriptions of sex acts performed on children? It’s absolutely heinous!”

“As a community, what are we waiting for?” she added. “Why do we have to wait until next week to remove these horrors?”

CORRECTION: The elementary school playground that was targeted with vulgar graffiti images is North Star Elementary, not Mountain View Elementary. We regret the error.
