The suspect defaced the statue Thursday night with the message “Black Power” after calls for its removal following the protests in Charlottesville, VA. Philly.com reports that the statue was egged Wednesday. Officers responded to a call Thursday around 11 p.m. to a call for “vandalism in progress” in front of the Municipal Services Building. On top of the vandalized Rizzo statue at the building, the words “The Black community should be their own Police” were written on the steps. City workers cleaned the statue early Friday morning. “The statue is going to come down one way or another,” Asa Khalif, a member of the Pennsylvania chapter of Black Lives Matter, said via Philly. “It stands for generational hurt, oppression, injustice, homophobia, anti-blackness.” Follow Breitbart.tv on Twitter @BreitbartVideo
