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.

    If a community clean up crew have evening hours to go and repaint or removal of vandalism I can help after my working hours. Why wait for an institution to do it. Mountain View community council and neighbors don’t have to wait, they choose to wait on ASD. They could had started clean up process earlier today before the rain this evening while I was at work.

    If it was graffiti transgressing one of the tenets of the pagan theocracy it would be gone immediately.

      Give me an example of the storied “pagan theocracy.”

        How about you just tell us what you’d actually spray-painted, Chuck, and we’ll be the judge of it.

    Of course the city and ASD can’t be bothered by a little sexually explicit messages. WE have books in children’s section of school libraries and the public libraries, just get over it. Just saw Song of Freedom last night about child sex trafficking. Of course it starts much earlier doesn’t it by sexualizing our children.

    Question that has to be asked and not brought up in any news media, why hasn’t the School District installed web cameras with night vision at every playground to catch fire bugs/vandals? For around $280 each, they could have four 1080p wireless cameras with night vision and a DVR with Four TERABYTES of storage! ZOSI 1080P Security Camera System with 4TB HDD, H.265+ 1080P HD-TVI CCTV DVR with (4) 1080P Security Cameras, 80ft Night Vision, IP66 Weatherproof, and Remote smartphone access. Or double the cameras to eight for around $400 – Hiseeu PoE Security Camera System, (8) 5MP IP Security Cameras for Indoor/ Outdoor usage,4K PoE NVR with 3TB HD, motion detection, and Audio Video Monitoring. Seems like the ideal solution to the problem, that might be the issue-makes too much sense.

      That would cut into the budget for pornagraphic books and CRT theory.

    Community cleanup! Spray paint and a little effort!
    Don’t wait on the authorities! Go for it!!

  • J says:

    This is an example of why I look over the playsets before I let my kids on them.

  • Dalton says:

    I can’t but believe what I see from these comments. how hard is it to grab a can of spray paint and paint over it? you think like slaves that have been taken over already. And how would cameras help? cameras are only to catch MAGA breaking the law.
