Old Mission Santa Barbara was vandalized with red paint with the words rape and genocide written near the church doors early Wednesday morning.

Edhat readers reported seeing the vandalism around 6:00 a.m. Wednesday with spray-painted words "genecide," assuming to mean genocide. "Rape" and "Never forget the lives + stolen land" were also painted on the Mission.

A window was also broken and the Santa Barbara Police Department state the vandalism was reported as early as 4:30 a.m. Wednesday with the paint already dried, reports KEYT News. The crime is considered a felony with the estimated damage is over $30,000.

Another act of vandalism occurred at the Santa Barbara Mission when the Junipero Serra statue was beheaded in September of 2017.

Shorebird - nice try but that's not a word. Well, that is unless you're thinking of the Marvel superhuman, "Genecide," who is gifted "with the ability to perceive the genetic codes of people around her." -- http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Genecide_(Earth-616)
