Police investigating vandalism of Confederate monument in Brownsville
The Brownsville Police Department is investigating the vandalism of a Confederate monument in a city park.
Someone dumped black paint on the monument, which honors Confederate President Jefferson Davis — ostensibly for his "service to the United States of America" — and covered the plaque with the words: "No Racist Idols."
For years, local activists have asked the Brownsville City Commission to remove the monument. The City Commission is scheduled to discuss the matter on Tuesday.
