A statue of Abraham Lincoln was vandalized in San Francisco as a school district committee pushes for the renaming of Lincoln High School and others, authorities said.
Deputies responded to a call about the incident at 12:55 p.m. Saturday, the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department told McClatchy News in an email. The suspect had fled before deputies arrived, according to the department.
The statue has been restored and deputies are still investigating.
Why is Lincoln in #SanFrancisco 'bloody' today?
It has to do with his role in the largest mass execution in US history. A story that we were not taught in school.
