Investigation launched into vandalism of NYC Vietnam memorial
New York City’s Vietnam War Memorial in Queens was vandalized Wednesday, just days after Memorial Day. Now, New York State Police will be investigating the defacement.
City Councilman Robert Holden brought attention to the defaced memorial. He tweeted out photos of spray painted Nazi symbols, among other designs. In a tweet, he also offered a $1,000 reward for any information that would lead “to the arrest and conviction of the sick soul who did it.”
Next, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo tweeted out a statement, saying he was “disgusted by the vandalism.” He announced that New York State Police will further investigate the scene.
This isn’t the first time a war memorial has been defaced in New York. Leading up to Memorial Day weekend, another Vietnam Veterans Memorial was vandalized in Glendale. Someone spray painted “Free Palestine” on the American flag hung on the fence. Holden also made an appearance there to capture the damage on Twitter.

BREAKING: Federal Indictment of Trump in Classified Documents Probe has been Unsealed
Former President and current Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, has been indicted and is facing 37 counts in connection with his alleged mishandling of classified documents. The 49-page document was unsealed Friday.
The indictment contains charges of the following: Willful retention of national defense information, conspiracy to obstruct justice, withholding a document or record, corruptly concealing a document or record, concealing a document in a federal investigation, scheme to conceal, and making false statements and representations.
Trump announced the indictment Thursday night on Truth Social, his social media platform:
“The corrupt Biden Administration has informed my attorneys that I have been Indicted, seemingly over the Boxes Hoax, even though Joe Biden has 1850 Boxes at the University of Delaware, additional Boxes in Chinatown, D.C., with even more Boxes at the University of Pennsylvania, and documents strewn all over his garage floor where he parks his Corvette, and which is ‘secured’ by only a garage door that is paper thin, and open much of the time.”
Trump declared himself an “INNOCENT MAN” and the subject of the “Greatest Witch Hunt of all time.” The Biden administration, he claimed, is ‘TOTALLY CORRUPT.”
The former president has argued that all the documents in question were declassified when he left the White House. “You’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying it’s declassified, even by thinking about it,” he told Fox News host Sean Hannity in an interview last year.
Trump was on to Biden's deep corruption re Ukraine and wanted it investigated, so they impeached him.
Now that many of Biden's crimes are being exposed, naturally they're going to indict Trump again.
