New Emmett Till marker dedicated in Mississippi after vandalism

A bulletproof marker was reportedly dedicated to civil rights icon Emmett Till in Mississippi on Saturday. This comes after previous ones had been vandalized by gunfire. Till, a 14-year-old black teenager, was kidnapped, beaten and lynched in Money, Mississippi, in 1955 for allegedly whistling at a white woman. The marker was erected near the Tallahatchie River where Till’s body was found.

You’d think after the second time they’d erect a security camera or just move the monument somewhere more secure.

Not to be a dick but when you start taking down statues and the like. People feel like it okay to shoot at and deface the ones everyone else agrees with. Nothing is sacred, everything is permitted and all that. I mean at first it was only jackass teenagers with a graffiti fetish that fucked with monuments now it is everyone. Beware the first step for there are always echos.

History should be preserved and protected. That goes for Tills memorial and Lee's statue. Forget history, doomed to repeat it.
