"Black Lives Matter" was spray-painted in large letters on the exterior of the Asheville, NC, Fraternal Order of Police's lodge on Monday.

A police spokesperson also says the windows of an FOP van in the parking lot were broken out, and someone cut the wires to surveillance cameras, WLOS TV reports.

Despite the cut wires, there is still surveillance footage of the suspect. The person in the video appears to be white, and is wearing a hoodie.

This is the kind of cowardly behavior we are to expect from this organization. When a group cannot convince through example or persuasion, they resort to this destructive action. I would hope they find out who did this criminal mischief and prosecute that individual.

Having been in LE for over 30 yrs, time to leave. Not worth the headache anymore. Just watching the daily news proves this. As an ofc nowadays you need to drive around with blinders on, no FOP anymore. Answer the radio runs, do your 8, 10, or 12 hour shifts and go home safe.
