Police in Orlando, Florida, appealed for the public’s help to identify individuals who were filmed spray-painting graffiti onto a Black Lives Matter street mural on June 26.

Two cameras showed individuals defacing the mural on Rosalind Avenue just after 11.30 pm, police said. Graffiti read “abolish the police” and “not enough,” according to local media reports.

“Vandalism is not how we bring positive change to our community,” Police Chief Orlando Rolón said on June 27.

    “Vandalism is not how we bring positive change to our community,” and neither is graffiti on public streets. Why is a mural even allowed on a public street? If I went out and created a mural on a public street, I can guarantee you that I'd be arrested, and most likely be forced to pay to have my mural removed! Now BLM grafitti is a protected mural, while beautiful memorials are being destroyed or removed. STOP NOTHING IS BEING RESOLVED AND YOU CAN'T CHANGE HISTORY LEARN FROM IT, DEAL WITH IT AND MOVE ON. ENOUGH.

    Police are searching for these people as they want to pay them for the excellent work the city would have had to foot but these wonderful people took care of the bill for the city - which included the materials, the labor, compensated lost time, materials overheads, labor overheads, taxes, etc. Not a bad deal for the city to help restore law and order for free to the taxpayers! Dear Orlando: When you find out who helped you, please let us know who helped fix your city as there are many other cities that need all the free help they can get to restore law and order.

    Why is a mural even allowed on a public street? If I went out and created a mural on a public street, I can guarantee you that I'd be arrested, and most likely be forced to pay to have my mural removed! So, I'm curious: if people were allowed to paint a "Black Lives Matter" mural on the street, why can't someone else come along and modify / add to the mural (even if it's graffiti!). I mean, the public streets appear to be open for creating murals / art. Right? So, does only ONE particular group have that right?

    So if someone painted a sign on the police building saying ( DON'T ABUSE THE POLICE ) would that be a protected form of art ?.

    Now BLM grafitti is a protected mural, while beautiful memorials are being destroyed or removed. America going tribal, next America will be renamed Mumbutu.

    ? It's graffiti in and of itself; to protect it like it actually means anything is pure pandering.
