Above you see a statue of President James Garfield. This statue is located in Piatt Park in Cincinnati, Ohio
If you look closely at the base of the statute, you’ll see a faded anarchy symbol.
That anarchy symbol was spray painted on the statue somewhere between 15 and 20 years ago.
I remember the first time I saw the statute after it was spray painted.
I said to myself something along the lines of–”I bet I know whoever the person is who did that.”
I had no idea who had done it. I just was fairly certain that it was some person I would know.
It was only last year that I asked somebody I thought might know who had vandalized the statue.
That person told me who did it and it was indeed somebody I had known.
If you’re reading this from the cold case unit of the Cincinnati Police Department, I can tell you that the guilty party is now dead.
20 years ago I was a punk rocker.
At 40, I’ve moved even further down the social scale by being a blogger.
