A massive mural to George Floyd, who died while in the custody of Minneapolis police, was destroyed on Tuesday after being hit by lightning.

As Fox News reports:

Witnesses told Toledo Police that a lightning strike destroyed the mural, and doppler radar shows a strike hit at about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday near where the mural was painted.

Photos of the destruction show part of the brick wall reduced to rubble, with fragments of mural still remaining on the wall along its border.

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.

Is the event just a coincidence or a kind of divine message? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

God tell these ignorant people to recognize right from wrong. You do not treat a criminal like he was a saint.

Now you made our savior mad . He’s stating that you do not idealize a common thug, criminal, drug dealer in the same class as a Saint. What’s he going to do next? Lookout you no believers, he’s just starting.

I think every drug crazed criminal should be glorified with their own mural and/ or statue. This is the new norm.

Allow the investigators time to issue a final report on this since the issue is so sensitive and then allow the mural’s friends to commence a restoration .

Let’s not, based on his character, George Floyd, is not deserving of martyrdom. He was a stain on society. There are far many more, that are more deserving
