    Out Kick the Coverage ^ | 6/4/17 | Clay Travis
    On Friday afternoon I called the Los Angeles police department to request any and all information about their investigation of the alleged racist graffiti incident on a gate outside LeBron James’s LA area home. The LAPD said they had nothing to share, including the police report itself. The only evidence I was told the police department had logged was a photo of the graffiti on the gate provided by the individual(s) at LeBron James’s Los Angeles residence. I was also told there had been no surveillance video entered into evidence in this case.

    An L.A. home owned by LeBron James was the target of a hate crime -- someone spray painted the n-word on the front gate and detectives are now investigating, cops tell TMZ Sports. Here's what we know ... multiple LAPD units and a neighborhood patrol vehicle responded to the home early Wednesday morning. We're told the word was scrawled on the outer gate. We're told investigators are looking for security footage from neighbors which may show the perpetrator. Records show LeBron bought the house back in 2015. The graffiti has since been covered up. We're told LeBron was not at...

    The Washington Monument and the World War II and Lincoln memorials were damaged by graffiti over the holiday weekend, officials said. U.S. Park Police and National Park Service officials said the three sites had graffiti markings that were similar in nature and not considered to be political or racial. Authorities would not release photos of the graffiti, saying the incident was still under investigation. They described it as being written in black ink, perhaps with a Sharpie pen, and slightly hard to read. One message said, “Jackie shot JFK.” Another message mentioned the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the...

    Cuban dissident artist Danilo “El Sexto” Maldonado, who was detained by authorities on Saturday after mocking Fidel Castro’s death, was severely beaten, according to relatives who saw him at the detention center in Guanabacoa. “Danilo's mom saw him,” the artist’s girlfriend, Miami resident Alexandra Martinez, 24, said late Tuesday. “He was badly beaten upon entering Guanabacoa and suffered a severe asthma attack.” Authorities also confiscated his cell phone, she said. Martinez said Maldonado’s mother, Maria Victoria Machado, was allowed to visit her son at a Guanabacoa police station, on the outskirts of Havana, for the first time since he was...

    When liberals heard about swastikas painted on a campus church with the word “Trump,” they went wild. But now America just learned who was really behind the hate graffiti, and now libs are completely embarrassed. Two Jewish students were charged with the hate crime where they vandalized the campus church at Northwestern University with swastikas, making it look as if supporters of President-elect Donald Trump were responsible for the offensive graffiti. According to The Chicago Tribune, Anthony Morales, 19, and Matthew Kafker, 18 were both charged with a hate crime and vandalism after they came forward to admit to spray-painting...

    A "Kill Your Local Trump Supporter" graffiti was spray-painted in white letters 20 feet long on School of the Museum of Fine Arts property on St. Alphonsus Street.

The message faced the parking lot of an adjacent building, and was visible from a sidewalk. It was painted over late this morning.

    SAN ANTONIO -- A church on the North Side has been vandalized with graffiti that could be a response to views by presidential candidate Donald Trump, the church's pastor said. The tagging, done in black spray paint against the brick building's entrance into the Gethsemane Lutheran Church, reads, "NO TO WALL" and "ISLAM OR DIE." Below those words is a stenciled symbol of some kind, although it's unclear what the symbol means.

    RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - It's a canvass of contempt that spares few. Democratic voters may want to take a detour around the corner of 25th and Cedar Streets, after a man covered much of his century-old home in scornful spray paint. The two-story tableau takes on left-leaning politicians, including Hillary Clinton, Tim Kaine and Terry McAuliffe. Dozens of demeaning phrases are painted from the ground to the roof, with Bill Clinton compared to Satan, D.C. described as Hades, and the Trump-Pence ticket, praised.

    Is Mayor de Blasio trying to bring back the city’s “bad old days”? If not, then why has his Department of Transportation stopped cleaning graffiti — a key hallmark of the “ungovernable city” of a few decades back? As The Post reported Wednesday, DOT scrapped its entire anti-graffiti staff last year. It no longer scrubs tags and other “art” from street signs, lights or other DOT property.

    HAWTHORNE, Calif. -- Vandals spray-painted graffiti about Jesus at two mosques in the Southern California city of Hawthorne and left a device that looked like a hand grenade in one of the driveways, leading police to investigate both incidents as hate crimes. The vandalism and other recent attacks against mosques and Muslims in California come after a couple who federal officials say were inspired by Islamist extremists killed 14 people at a holiday luncheon in San Bernardino on Dec. 2. Some Muslims in Southern California and beyond have worried about the potential for reprisals, while leaders of various faiths have...

    TITUSVILLE -- You’ve seen the billboards all over Central Florida -- law firm Morgan & Morgan, touting they’re “For the People." But we found one littered with graffiti – and the question is – who did it? Or is it a stunt? "I don't know how anyone could get up there without being seen," said Tabatha Liller, with a chuckle. Liller works at Shedmovers, a small business on US 1 in North Titusville. Directly across the street stands a billboard -- right now with advertising for law firm Morgan & Morgan. But if you look closer it looks different to...

    Nine graffiti artists who spray painted creations across the world-renowned 5Pointz building filed a lawsuit Friday in Brooklyn federal court, seeking unspecified damages from the owner who whitewashed away their artwork.

    Andre Saraiva is an internationally known graffiti artist. He owns nightclubs in Paris and New York, works as a top editor of the men's fashion magazine L'Officiel Hommes and has appeared in countless glossy magazines as a tastemaker and bon vivant. Two months ago he showed up on the decidedly un-fashionista website Modern Hiker, along with a photo of a boulder he tagged in Joshua Tree National Park. Since then, Saraiva, who lives in France and is known by his fans as Mr. Andre and Mr. A., has been scorned by American nature lovers and thrust into a highly charged...
