Man Charged With Hanging Noose On 2Pac Statue


A 43-year-old Dekalb resident has been charged in the recent defacement of the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts in Stone Mountain, Georgia.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Kenneth Anthony Wilson was charged on Thursday (November 1) with second degree criminal damage to property, which is a felony.

The vandalism occurred during the early morning hours of October 20, when fliers bearing rants about various rappers, the 9/11 attacks and Hurricane Katrina were plastered all over the statue and the Center’s grounds.

A rope with a wooden cross attached to it was also found wrapped around the bronze statue of Tupac that stands in the Center’s Peace Garden.

Wilson, who is African-American, has not been charged with a hate crime and is being held on a $1500 bond.
