Police investigate smashed statue of Breonna Taylor

Police are investigating after a statue of Breonna Taylor, erected to honor her memory, was smashed in Oakland. The statue was found smashed on Saturday, about two weeks after it was installed. No suspects have been identified or motive figured out. The bust depicts a smiling Taylor and carries a plaque at the base that reads: ’Say her name: Breonna Taylor.’

Sure why not? If BLM can smash perceived symbols of racism with impunity then so can anyone else. Ye created this environment, no crying cos it's biting you on the posterior 😉

Her bust represents the suppression by Black Supremacists that lie to the world to say police killed her because she is black, and suppress any opposition to that myth, fake lie, which is then penned up into animosity and anger resulting in the bust being vandalised. BLM is a terrorist group as well as the Democrat Communist Party as both lie all day long to stoke division and hate just so they can have power. If you voted for and support the Democrat Communist Party, you are a sheep being let to slaughter (and a brain-dead drone moron).

Why say her name. Did she do something noble for mankind? Did she save a life? Did she invent or create a cure or did she fight for a cause to better our nation? Sadly, her life was taken in an untimely way. But she was living with a criminal. He had an illegal gun. He was suspected in a murder. He was wanted by police. She was caught in the crossfire and shootout. So why did she get a memorial? By this standard I should be nominated for sainthood. I can simpathize with family. But many have died under that criteria. Is it easyer to make a statue than change culture to aspire to better society?

How come the cops never investigated any of the other monuments that were vandalised? Thats right because they were peaceful protests how forgetful of me. Sorry.

Police don't investigate all the statues of actual historical figures being destroyed by mobs, but they investigate this one. No political bias, here.

Don't worry. They also tore down a statue of Abraham Lincoln in Portland (and no, it wasn't Confederate supporters who did it, but rather "woke" people). You have to understand that if you display ANY statue in Portland, the countdown to its destruction has already started. That's what happens when a culture of anarchy is allowed to fester and crimes go unpunished.

Destroying statues of people who don’t necessarily deserve them has been a fun theme for the year. The collateral damage even funnier.

What goes around, comes around. Leftists, be ready for a few years of eating crow, while all the demands you won come crashing down on you as well. You began removing and destroying statues and monuments. This is your fault, that we do this now. The precedent was set by YOU. The anger and hatred got organized, when YOU did. Chasing the boogyman ('nazis') for so long made YOU the monster, through your hypocrisy and inability to reason through bias and racism.

Why the condescending "say her name"? This doesn't honour anyones memory, this is a political statement made standing on a corpse.

Yet can't investigate this. Their stores were burned, ransacked and looted. What's next for Minneapolis-area small business owners? https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/06/01/george-floyd-protests-riots-minneapolis-small-businesses/5300736002/ $1 billion-plus riot damage is most expensive in insurance history https://www.axios.com/riots-cost-property-damage-276c9bcc-a455-4067-b06a-66f9db4cea9c.html

Why does this woman get a statue? The black male there with her told the cops that she shot at them. She fired at police officers. They returned fire. How is this statue worthy??

I’m willing to wager over 90% of the comments thus far are from racist @__ whites. The same type of people that counterprotest those who are protest injustices they’re facing. Counter protesters of the Civil Rights movement, the Women Rights movement, the LGBTQ right movement, etc typically share common traits — populated with self serving racist whites.
