A growing chorus of public health experts is urging federal, state and local officials to reconsider.

A new mural with the giant slogan for Black Lives Matter was vandalized hours after being painted on a street in Orlando.

Orlando Police Chief Orlando Rolon posted Saturday on Twitter that his department was investigating the incident and shared images with graffiti written on top of the mural that said “not enough” and “abolish police.”

The slogan was painted Friday with the red, black, and green of the Pan-African flag, a symbol of Black pride. The mural stretches 400 feet in length and 30 feet in width and is one of several of its kind to pop up in cities around the country following the May 25 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
