A Gwinnett mom spent Mother's Day on Sunday scrubbing her car, garage door and driveway after vandals spray painted anti-gay slurs that her young son discovered as the family prepared to go to church.
The vandals struck Kristi Logue's Snellville home overnight on Saturday – less than 48 hours after she moved in, according to WSB. The vandals used white paint to spray what appears to be “fag” on the hood, trunk and a door of Logue's Toyota Avalon and black paint to spray the slur on her garage door. Via WSB:
“I couldn't believe it. Actually I was at a loss for words. I saw the car first, it was written in white across the hood, both sides of the car and the trunk. I mean and then I go to the garage door and I see it in black,” Logue said.
Logue told WSB that her son was the first out the door and noticed the vandalism. Via WSB:
“My kids were like, ‘Mommy what’s happening?’ My little girl starts crying and I’m just at a loss to figure who did it and why they would do it and it’s not me,” Logue said.
Logue told 11 Alive that the vandalism happened after the family's second night in their new home. She said she's not gay and doesn't understand why vandals would target her.
Logue's new neighbors helped her clean up after the vandalism. The Snellville Police Department is investigating, according to WSB.
In July, vandals armed with spray paint struck an LGBT church in Augusta. In August, vandals targeted a lesbian couple in Forsyth County and torched the couple's 2008 Saturn – the second time the homeowners had been victimized.
