Stay Classy, Mississippi

The historical sign marking where Emmett Till’s body was found in the Tallahatchie River in 1955 has been riddled with bullets.


Since the Emmett Till Memorial Commission put up eight markers in Tallahatchie County in 2008, the sign near the river has been a repeated target of vandals.

It’s one of a number of civil rights markers and symbols that have been vandalized in Mississippi over the past decade.

Cast 'em in Bronze. Much more bullet resistance.

I'd even donate a bit for that.

Bronze gets stolen. There are some green stained concrete pedestals around here. In SF, metal thieves steal manhole covers! -some are welded down.

Make a two sided sign with a hollow space to fill with Tannerite. When the vandals blow it up the cops just need to troll the bars and arrest whoever is bragging about it, because you know they will brag.
