The Black Lives Matter mural on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue in front of Trump Tower was defaced Monday but quickly fixed, authorities said.

"To whoever vandalized our mural on 5th Avenue: nice try. @NYC_DOT has already fixed it," Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted, referring to the city Department of Transportation.

The Black Lives Matter "movement is more than words, and it canít be undone," de Blasio said.


Video showed someone splashing red paint on the mural, which was installed Thursday.

The New York City Police Department said they received a call around 12:15 p.m. Monday about criminal mischief at 725 Fifth Avenue.

2. If the NYPD wanted to arrest who did that vandalism, they'd be in custody already...

You can't make me believe there aren't enough cameras and shit around there to make it easy.

They might get to it eventually, after enough political pressure.

3. You'd think that they (the cops)

would welcome the chance to practice their "choke-hold" techniques......

(I know - it is not right to blame ALL for the wrong-doings of one............)

((but it would be nice if more of the "ALL" would help stop the wrong-doings of that "one"....)

5. Especially if the person

on the surveillance cameras was 6'1" over 300 pounds, with tumbleweed on his head.
