Hateful graffiti hits Tucson neighborhood

Posted at 6:35 AM, Feb 08, 2016
A disturbing sight is sprawling across the walls and cars of one northwest side neighborhood. 
 
Graffiti with ISIS-inspired words have hit the community near River and Stone and it has put many residents on edge. 
 
Phrases like 'attack cops' and 'you're not safe' are now spread across at least five walls in the Northmanor Neighborhood.
 
Other walls take on the government, writing 'kill Obama' and 'kill Clinton,' among other phrases. 
 
At least 3 cars were also tagged, spelling out ISIS with black spray paint.
 
The tagging spree is sparking fear in the neighborhood, so much so - one woman would not talk to us on camera because she was worried she could be the next target. 
 
"It's beyond horrible," she told Scripps sister station KGUN9. "You can't joke about people dying." 
 
It's absolutely not a joke to the Pima County Sheriff's Department. Deputies have already come out to check the scene and are now investigating.
