Vandals tag Veterans Hall

Friday, Jan. 2, 2015 — As anti-racial discrimination protests erupt in big cities and racial tensions roil all across the nation in the aftermath of the recent deaths of two unarmed black men at the hands of police, local vandals joined the act last week by tagging the Veterans Memorial Hall on Main Street in Susanville.

The three tagging incidents include an expletive toward the police, a rest-in-peace message to Trayvon Martin, 17, who was shot death by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch coordinator from Sanford, Florida on Feb. 26, 2012 (the taggers misspelled his name as Travon), and a second rest-in-peace message to Michael Brown, 18, who was shot and killed by Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, 2014.

“We found the tagging on Thursday night, Dec. 11, during our Veterans of Foreign Wars meeting,” Ron Wood wrote in an email to the newspaper. “It was most likely done on Wednesday night.”
