A car which has been prominently displayed at demonstrations across the St. Louis area was towed from the owner’s apartment complex for being “unsightly.”
The car has phrases like “no justice, no peace” and “I can’t breathe” spray-painted onto it. The phrases support Michael Brown Jr. and Eric Garner, who were both killed during encounters with police.
The owner of the car, Lala Moore, told News 4 her vehicle was towed from her apartment complex after the complex’s manager said the car was unsightly and her lease requires Moore to keep the car in good repair.
Moore said the decision was not justified since she believes there are other cars in worse shape that have never been towed from the complex.
“I was furious… I was past furious,” Moore said. “I haven’t done anything wrong.”
The manager of the complex said they took action because the phrase “FTP,” which is derogatory to police, was painted on the car.
