Memorial to Jersey City Cop Killer Removed

July 15, 2014  | 

VIDEO: Newscast Reports on Memorial to Cop Killer Suspect

A memorial for a man who was killed after he reportedly ambushed and shot to death a 23-year-old rookie police officer in New Jersey has been removed, reports the Associated Press.

Mayor Steven Fulop says he ordered the city to take down the memorial to 27-year-old Lawrence Campbell on Monday night.

Fulop says he won't let the residents who put up the memorial pretend they express the views of the entire city.

The memorial had included candles, balloons, empty liquor bottles and messages of love from friends scrawled on T-shirts taped to a brick wall.

Good job Mr. Mayor. It's refreshing to see a politician with some testicular fortitude and not subscribing to the PC BS..

Freaking SAVAGES.....Same problems going on in the City of Anaheim in California... Good job Mayor

This mayor is a leader and I have a lot of respect for his action. However, he will probably be sued over it. Our society has an institutionalized way of silencing leaders like this mayor. Let's wait and see.

Good job Mayor Rest in Peace Young Brother Officer

I applaud the Mayor’s action, but it was the wrong action. He will get sued for violating the free speech of those who put up the memorial. It is a shame, but there it is. The better thing to do was to put up a counter display and make a big deal about it. I fear the Mayor and the City will end up with big bills from some lawyer getting paid to raise a first amendment law suit for which the lawyer will get paid handsomely. Still, the Mayor is a stand-up person.

Thank you Mayor Fulop. Your actions not only honored this fallen officer, but you have shown honor toward all law enforcement officers. Having been one for nearly 40 years now, I thank you!

Thank you Mayor Fulop. Your actions have not only honored this fallen officer, but you have shown respect toward all law enforcement officers. I know we all appreciate it!
