The internet is trying to hunt down two people who “vandalized” a Black Lives Matter street art piece in Martinez, California. And there’s a video of the event:
I like how the guy is making his girlfriend or wife do all the work LOL! At one point he yells “Keep America Great Again!” and “All Lives Matter!” There’s a lot of cursing, and threats of fighting each other. At one point later in the video, the BLM supporter steals their paint bucket. Unfortunately for the couple, it sounds like the BLM paint was approved and permitted, so they are probably gonna get in trouble.
The police are investigating the matter:
A Black Lives Matter mural was defaced in Martinez Saturday and now police are investigating.
According to Martinez police, residents obtained a permit to paint the phrase on Court Street outside the Contra Costa County courthouse.
Just an hour after the mural was completed, another group came and painted over the Black Lives Matter phrase.
And they are asking for help identifying the couple:
Police said in a statement Sunday that a white female painted over the mural as a white man made comments to onlookers.
“It appeared that the couple came to the mural with cans of paint and a roller with the specific purpose of vandalizing over the mural,” the Martinez Police Department said. “The community spent a considerable amount of time painting this mural only to have the suspects destroy it by dumping and rolling paint over part of the message.”
Once police were notified of what happened, the suspects were gone, the department said.
