    Californians Who Allegedly Defaced Black Lives Matter Mural Face Hate Crime Charge

    So this means that everyone caught on video defacing and destroying statues and monuments are going to get prosecuted the same way right?????

    Two residents of Martinez, California, who allegedly vandalized a Black Lives Matter street mural on Independence Day have been charged with a hate crime, officials said Tuesday.

    The Contra Costa County District Attorney’s office said Nichole Anderson, 42, and David Nelson, 53, face three misdemeanor charges, including vandalism, for allegedly painting over the mural on Saturday ― shortly after it was completed by community members outside a county courthouse in Martinez.

    If convicted, Anderson and Nelson face up to a year in county jail, Becton’s office said.

    A local resident had obtained a permit from the city to paint the mural, police said. Video of the defacement, captured by an onlooker, shows a woman in a red shirt with an American flag design using black paint and a roller to cover part of the mural.

    A man in a MAGA hat and T-shirt that reads “Trump” and “Four More Years” accompanied the woman and recorded onlookers as they shouted at them to stop vandalizing the mural.

    “There is no racism,” the man said in the video. “It’s a leftist lie. It’s a lie from the media, the liberal left.”

    The mural was a “peaceful and powerful way to communicate the importance of Black lives,” Contra Costa County District Attorney Diana Becton said in a statement.

    “We must address the root and byproduct of systemic racism in our country,” she said. “The Black Lives Matter movement is an important civil rights cause that deserves all of our attention.”

      There is no importance of black lives, no more than any other race / color.

      Saying there is = racism.

          Vandalism? Sure. Hate Crime? No Fawkin' Way!
          The average American has lost his or her fookin' mind

          Folks are tripping over each other to out-PC the last idjit.

          "ALL LIVES MATTER" cannot be racist - how could it be?

          Differentiating by race is, by definition, RACIST. <-- truth.

          Also, 1984 was a cautionary story, not a damned road map

          Logic, reason, and centuries-old word definitions are still valid.

              Since when is it illegal to clean up and paint over graffiti? Cause that’s what the BLM “mural” really is.

              i almost wish there was one of these “murals” around here. I’d love to lay down a big fat burnout right across it.

                        That is a GREAT idea I hope someone has already done it.

                        Denial --> lawsuit (should be slam-dunk win).

                        Approval --> heads explode because (honestly not sure why, but )

                          The nonprofit organization wants to paint its motto which is "Because no one is above the law." The group was willing to paint the slogan on a separate city street outside of its D.C. headquarters.
