Wall of Anti-Cop Graffiti
1450 University Avenue West
Several pieces of anti-cop graffiti on one wall, written by different hands and different colors of spray paint. Included are "Good Cop = Dead," "cops are murderers," "Kill Derek Chaufin," and "Killa cop save a life [smiley face]." This wall also includes picture of a pig in a coffin and a tag reading "MAMA."
Painted in the context of intense conflict between protestors and police as well as extensive damage to businesses and structures centered in area on 5/28/2020. This wall was painted on the former site of the Midway Walmart, a store that closed in the fall of 2019 and was often accused of racial profiling and critiqued for being too quick to call for police intervention.
