George Floyd Mural Obliterated By Lightning Strike During Overnight Storm — Details

He was turned into a martyr as if he accomplished some noble feat. He was hailed by liberal politicians, Hollywood elites, and the media, as some sort of hero. And yet all that George Floyd did was resist arrest.

However, there’s no point in rehashing the past. The Floyd saga has been told a million times over at this point.

On Tuesday evening a little poetic justice may have occurred in Ohio.


More from Fox News:

The piece, titled “Take a Breath,” was created by local artist David Ross about one year ago in honor of Floyd, who was murdered in Minneapolis last Memorial Day by police officer Derek Chauvin.

Ross said he received threats over the mural and speculated the destruction could have been caused by vandalism and not lightning.

“When I did the mural, there was stuff on the wall that I couldn’t remove and that let me know how strong that structure was,” Ross told the Toledo Blade. “The lightning thing, that’s possible, but I know it didn’t just fall.”


The Ohio city said it plans to replace the mural and that it is exploring different locations to house it.

One city building inspector said the destruction could have also been due to the deterioration of the wall. He added that inspectors recently found the middle of the wall, where the majority of destruction occurred, had been bowing.

“It was just age. It just came away,” inspector Hugh Koogan told the Toledo Blade. “It happens to the older buildings.”


Was the lightning strike a sign from GOD? Donald Trump Jr. seems to think so.

From Yahoo:

In a 131-word Instagram caption, Donald Trump Jr. speculated that the destruction of a George Floyd mural in Toledo, Ohio, might be a sign from God.


Some conservatives and pro-Trump personalities with large followings have long speculated, without evidence, that Floyd’s killing by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was not an egregious act of police brutality but rather part of some sort of conspiracy.
