This act of vandalism sums up the attitude that needs to be destroyed if the minorities ever expect to be taken seriously by society.

They don’t expect to be taken seriously. They just want free stuff.

White crosses for black victims? That's stupid.

I know churches on both sides of the state line mean well by making this display. However, I don’t see any benefit to it. Residents know what the city has become and is this really the type of thing we want visitors to see?

When I see churches with crosses in their yard, I immediately think it is a ProLife protest of abortion.

So in terms of branding, it appears this church with great intentions co-opted a meme, borrowed the imagery of some other politically motivated group.

I am sorry this church did that.
I am sorry this church had their public protest vandalized.

Can anyone on TKC suggest a DIFFERENT imagery plan for their anti-homicide protest?

I read here the names of the victims are on the crosses, but I could not see that in the pictures.

Since most were victims of gun violence, could they have tacked on a cheap plastic pistol on each cross? Thereby creating more visual interest and curiosity for the passersby? And a better news story???

Come on, TKC commenters--what say you?

Once again, Tracy nails it.

Pun intended...but really, she has some good insights...

No respect no class, it's Indy avenue what you expect, street walkers to act like humans?

I will not suggest different imagery for the murdered persons memorial (not a protest) because I do not buy your premise that pro-life activists own that image.

What if some of the victims were Jews? Or Muslims? Or atheists? Isn’t it kind of disrespectful to assume they want a cross representing their death?

If some of them were Jews, good. If some were Muslim, fantastic!

What were the local atheist club leaders doing at this time?

They should be questioned.
