NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — The word “shame” has been spray-painted on a Confederate monument in Virginia.
Media outlets report Norfolk police spokesman Daniel Hudson says officers were called to the vandalism site Monday morning.
The Norfolk City Council decided in 2015 to keep the monument, despite pressure from a local civil rights group. At the top of the monument is a statue of a Confederate soldier also known as a Johnny Reb.
