(Newser) – A 45-year-old Oklahoma woman is accused of going on what Fox 25 refers to as "a hate-filled crime spree" over a period of four weeks in Norman and Oklahoma City. Racist and anti-Semitic slurs, including swastikas and Nazi symbols, and threats of violence to non-white people, were spray painted on two churches, two public schools, two homes, an art center, and a political office, police say. Allison Johnson turned herself in Thursday, and police say she confessed to everything, telling investigators she was trying to "wake people up" and "scare Jewish people" and non-white people.

On Monday, she was charged with one felony and three misdemeanor charges of malicious injury to property, plus a charge of malicious intimidation or harassment related to accusations she defaced the driveway of a home belonging to two men because of their native origin, KOCO reports. (In one state, black churches are going up in flames.)
