An image circulating on social media implies that a display of Memorial Day crosses was damaged by protesters following the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who was killed after a white police officer knelt on his neck on May 25 in Minneapolis. This is false.
The photo was taken in 2016, after a vehicle drove through the display in Henderson, Kentucky’s Central Park ( here ).
A 27-year-old man was arrested in connection to the incident, according to Time ( here ).
False. Memorial Day crosses were damaged by a vehicle in 2016, not by George Floyd protesters.
