George Floyd statue defacing in NYC caught on CCTV

Telegraph, 05 Oct 2021
A statue of George Floyd in New York City has been vandalised, just two days after it was set up.

Video footage provided by police shows an unidentified person on a skateboard throwing paint on the statue at approximately 10 a.m. Sunday morning before fleeing.

Nearby statues of late Congressman John Lewis and Breonna Taylor, a Louisville, Kentucky woman shot and killed by police last year, apparently weren't touched.
