Mayor Pugh comments on vandalism of Francis Scott Key statue

Source: ABC

Wednesday morning, people in Bolton Hill found red paint covering the Francis Scott Key statue in downtown Baltimore.

The monument was covered from the sidewalk, all the way up to the top of its columns. Someone also sprayed the words 'racist anthem' and 'slave owner' on the statue and sidewalk.

In a statement, Mayor Catherine Pugh says, "Freedom of speech is welcome in the city of Baltimore, but not at the cost of our public spaces and neighborhoods. Vandalism of any kind is unacceptable, and those found to be associated with this crime will be charged."
