A Palm Bay man said he wanted to explode in anger when he saw what happened to his front lawn.
Police are now investigating after someone used a chemical to write a racial slur on the man's lawn in huge letters.
Courtney Gordon's lawn serviceman pointed it out to him. The N-word, in three-foot letters, on his front lawn.
"I feel like this is a threat to me and my family, so I'm not too happy about it," Gordon said. "You can see them slowing down when they go by my house, so everybody's just driving by and reading it."
Gordon has an idea who might have done it. He notified police, and they're investigating.
"I have a feeling of who done it. It's like a group of them, and I leave them to God," Gordon said. "I'm a big guy, so they're not gonna come to me and say that. They did it like the way they did it, behind my back and at night."
Police told Gordon it's a hard crime to solve, unless someone confesses. If the vandalism is classified as a hate crime, it can be prosecuted as a higher degree of misdemeanor, with an enhanced penalty.
"I feel that they're a coward, because if they have an issue with me, it's just best to come and speak to me, and not take it to a level as this," Gordon said.
Gordon has a surveillance camera, but it wasn't on at the time. Gordon said it will be from now on.
That section of Gordon's lawn is being re-sodded, and he said the expense is just part of what's so upsetting.
BS meter pegged off the chart
The odds are abuut 99 to 1 he pays absolutely no attention th current events, and he absolutely did this himself.
We all know what this is about, don’t we. This ‘RAT gag is getting old.
Isn’t this a form of greetings amongst Blacks?
> “Gordon has a surveillance camera, but it wasn’t on at the time. Gordon said it will be from now on.”
Mega red flag...
By himself, most likely. Most of these turn out to be attention seeking hoaxes.
Yup. I live in the area, and no one really gives a shit what you are as long as you keep up your property. This is a hoax.
Is this yet another in a long line of hoaxes,
Enquiring minds want to know!

Bet I’d get him to fess up if I started going door to door asking around. Would also dig his trash can to see if I could find any chemicals that match what’s on the lawn. Then tell him I’m going to call his ex-wife to ask a few questions. He’d probably give it up then. They hate you calling their exes; most of the time they owe them child support and they don’t know where they moved to....: )
Typically they will paint these slurs on their own houses or cars, or go the self-mutilation route in order to “prove” victimhood.
A lawn slur is less work in the lawn er long run. Maybe that’s why he’s complaining about the cost.
DIY racism on the cheap. Now that’s just plain embarrassing.
Several years ago a muslim woman “found” a note on her car.
In scrawled and misspelled english it said something like “Muslum go hoMe - AMerica no waNt you”
Below there was arabic writing. It had a simliar message I guess, but it was perfect in it’s flowing and complex nature.
This guy’s lawn? Who knows. Some places still have the idiots that would write this crap on someone’s lawn. Although I guess I’d rather have this than the “knock-out game”.
uh huh. right.
Color me skeptical.
look at the different sorts of foliage on that slope, and you wonder just how well it was kept up.
Lots of blacks in Palm Bay. Nobody is singling out this guy.
My guess is, if it really happened at all, is he got into a pissing contest with a neighbor.
Not very neighborly, whoever did it.
A friend of mine is a full time Christian evangelist and teacher. When he bought his first house, it came with a really nice lawn that he was pretty proud of and tried to keep well manicured.
One day I asked him what he would do if I wrote “Jesus Saves” with gasoline on his lawn and lit it on fire?
Hmmmm, what a conundrum.
And I agree, this was likely self inflicted. It’s too neatly laid out to be a hasty vandal.
I would start looking for the nearest #BLM crowd for the perps, it’s just a fact white people don’t do these things, I really have no idea but I would suspect this is a predominately white area, and the BLM crowd do not like blacks living there, like everywhere else blacks suffer the most at the hands of other blacks.
