    How is the mural defacement. Wasn't it done with the city's permission?

    Vandals deface Black Lives Matter street mural

    The mural was the idea of Oak Park and River Forest High School graduate Cullen Benson, and was designed and painted by local volunteers under the guidance of the Oak Park Area Arts Council.

    Did the people in Baltimore have a permit to deface the statue of George Washington?

    I'm willing to bet they didn't. It wasn't right to deface the statue of George Washington, just like it isn't right to deface this BLM mural.

    When this happens in your city, you have to place a for sale sign in your front yard. Libby run cities fail again.

    That's correct. Someone else somewhere else didn't something wrong, too.

    You should probably ask that question on that thread.

    Huh? Everyone in Oak Park needs to sell their homes and move because someone painted a mural and someone defaced it?
    Want to explain?

    Wasn’t this the same OP that had the thread a few days ago about the media not reporting something?
    Those never go well.

    Please try to stay on topic recognizing you're posting in an embarrassingly meritless thread.

    I'll try...If the you know who people won't go back to you know where, than the white people have to go someplace where those other people aren't.

    No one has EVER said blue lives don’t matter, so there’s really no reason to proclaim they do. Black lives, unless you’ve lived in a cave, have obviously NEVER mattered as much as white ones, so why don’t you advocate for those lives rather than blue ones???

    Lol, Jmdz, How is that off topic? It’s a direct response to your post.

    Nothing new there. White folk have been moving to get away from black folk for a long time.

    LOL, Snatch, it had nothing to do with the original topic, did it? Just typical Pub deflection.

    Just want to get this right. If I do something in one city that is off topic if I do the same thing in a different city. I’m sorry. I didn’t realize the rules. I’m good now. Is CHAZ/CHOP a city or state? Just need to know for future off topics

    Try to keep up. Hickory posted this nonsense about the irony of a couple in Chicago being charged with defacing the BLM stuff on the street while the "original defacers" were not. Hickory apparently didn't understand that the "original defacers" had a valid permit and the blessings of the city to create their street mural. This one is pretty fact specific and it's more than a little tiring that every time a Pub gets caught posting something stupid, there is an immediate pivot to something that has nothing directly to do with the original post.

    So, no, something that was done by BLM protesters in another city without a permit isn't on topic with this one.
