Hate crime against Lower Elwha

Port Angeles mural vandalism filled with racial slurs, but police chief says it's not a hate crimeFaces of Native Americans depicted on a scene of the Ennis Creek waterfront that would become east Port Angeles are blacked out.

A "white power" declaration is painted over the canoes.

Obscenities and racial slurs cover the canoes and other depictions of a serene Klallam village of Y'ennis around 1750.

A crudely drawn devil face seemingly floats in the sky.
Comment:  If this isn't a hate crime, what is?
