Man arrested for 3D-graffiti of crashing planes on La. 9/11 memorial
Question of the Day
Police have arrested a man accused of placing two cardboard cutout images of crashing planes at the 9-11 Memorial in downtown Lafayette, La.
Lafayette Police Cpl. Paul Mouton said 35-year-old Salvador Perez was arrested Wednesday on a charge of criminal damage to a historic building and criminal trespassing, the Daily Mail reported. He faces up to $1,000 in fines and two years in jail if convicted.
Police believe the insensitive graffiti was placed at the monument overnight Tuesday to mark the somber anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001.
A local television station reported that the stabilizers on the cardboard planes include apparent references to the New World Order conspiracy theory — the Eye of Providence and the initials “NWO.”
For some, the theory includes the belief that the 9-11 attacks were carried out by the United States government, KATC said.
The management of a building across the street from the monument reported discovering a cartoon squirrel on top of its roof pointing a gun at the memorial, TV station KETK reported.
