Controversy continues to surround a store in Piermont that regularly posts anti-abortion statements.
Richard Bruno, who is Catholic, expresses his views on the windows of his chimney cleaning office on Piermont Avenue. Bruno says someone is vandalizing his property. He says they are tearing down his statements and defaced a picture of Pope John Paul II. Bruno believes those actions constitute a hate crime.
It isn?t the first time pictures in Bruno?s store windows caused an uproar. In November, Bruno posted explicit pictures of aborted babies in protest of county executive candidates who supported sending tax dollars to Planned Parenthood.
