When a 19-year-old and a 20-year-old allegedly vandalized a "Black Lives Matter" street mural in Santa Cruz, they prompted a community outcry and may face hate crime charges — a development that prompted a separate outcry.

The street mural, painted in front of City Hall in 2020 after the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and others, was reportedly vandalized by the suspects on Friday. Police made the arrests Sunday and said the pair took turns driving a car over the mural and covering it with black tire marks.

Police charged the suspects with felony vandalism, and a rare community briefing was held Sunday evening featuring remarks from city leaders in response to the incident. The event was held after an outcry from residents on social media who demanded that the vandalism be taken seriously and that hate crime charges be brought.

“The mural is considered a public art installation, guided and funded by community members who desired a reminder of the struggle Black members of our community endure both locally and across the nation,” said Mayor Donna Meyers.

If that "public art installation" is so precious why is placed where people are literally driving over it? You don't preserve Mona Lisa by plastering it in the middle of Champs-Élysées, do you?

In CA they’ll be sacrificed to left wing mob. That’s how it is here. You have no rights here if your rights offend leftists.

"Police charged the suspects with felony vandalism..."

Apparently, that was a real thing on the books before this 'art' was ever laid down.

It will get plead down. Not the hate crime bullshit, but the 'felony vandalism'. Defense can't claim anything can be vandalized that they deliberately put into 'damage way', like a road. Might not even survive arraignment if the judge isn't a CRT pussy.

The night is young:

Santa Cruz County District Attorney's Office has promised to bring hate crime charges if there is sufficient evidence of animus.


PS. It's a fucking road. Leaving tire marks on the road is using it for its intended purpose. Making "murals" - is not.

The "mural" was lacking black. The defendants were simply bringing some needed color to the table. You don't hate black, do you your honor?

It almost feels like "dictatorship" is coming.
They are daring people to go against elite's wishes so that they can make example out of them.

They also let BLM/ANTIFA types to do lot of destruction without charges to tell who is the "big daddy government" and they can do what they like.
I feel sad for my country USA and in extension to rest of world and liberty.

Dividing society and using the divisions to eliminate "rule of law" is a dangerous game played by control freak criminal minded elites.

When they painted that shit on the street was when I decided I was going to depart Santa Cruz.

I will visit from time to time.

Assholes run the town.

Yes. But the HATE CRIME about it is what they will get nailed on. But in order for a HATE crime to have occurred, they need to prove a real crime did in order for them to attach the HATE part to it.

This is where the defense needs to fight against the entire 'roadside vandalism' thing. Again, in a sane world this would not even occur precisely because of the point you make.

But we don't live in a sane world.

California
California is straightforward when it comes to vandalism. In most cases, vandalism is considered a misdemeanor, with fines ranging for the amount of damage, but penalties not exceeding one year in jail. Vandalism in California becomes a felony when the crime was arson, or when the vandalism is considered a hate crime.

"or when the vandalism is considered a hate crime..."

So there you go. Life in the Peoples Republic of Kommiefornia
