Two Phoenix police officers were bothered by graffiti painted over a mural of an American flag in north Phoenix, so they decided to do something about it.
Officers Mario Lozoya and Matt Morgan were on patrol last Wednesday when they noticed an American flag painted on a block wall near 40th Street and Cactus Road had been vandalized. Someone had spray-painted the words “F*** Trump!” and “F*** ICE!” over the mural.
Morgan said it bothered him so much that he wanted to repaint the flag.
“The next day I come in and I decide I need to go find it,” he said. “I called Mario to remind me what street I saw it near and sure enough he said, ‘I’m at Home Depot buying the supplies right now. Meet me there.’”
