An American flag mural in a small town in New York was vandalized after several protesters started calling for a boycott, claiming it is a symbol of hate and oppression.

The town of New Paltz rallied together a few weeks ago to help raise funds and show support for the patriotic painting proposed by La Bella Pizza Bistro owner Maria Lisante to cover a rundown brick wall on the side of her building, which is across the street from an elementary school. Just days before the mural was completed, it was defaced.

The article goes on to state the following:

Lieutenant Robert Lucchesi told Fox News that police are still actively investigating the case after the graffiti allegedly appeared Monday night.

Joey Garcia, a New York state corrections officer and Army National Guard veteran who organized the rally to support the flag, told Fox News he believes the perpetrator is not only disrespecting the flag but the military and country as well.

The following reports are from earlier in October, when the town was rallying to raise funds to have the mural painted, amid protests.

    P.S. – God bless America, our flag, our president, all our servicemen and women, all who fought and died or were injured to give us our freedom, all police, firemen, doctors nurses and anyone who loves this country to give of themselves everything day. How about respect and appreciation the things we having in this beautiful country and stop trying to destroy it.
