Written By: Robert Cox

MAMARONECK, NY — Andrew Lamb, aged 23, of the Village of Mamaroneck has been charged with Criminal Mischief in the Fourth Degree as a Hate Crime, an E Felony by the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office.

Lamb was placed under arrest by Village of Mamaroneck Police. He was released on his own recognizance with a pending a future court date.

As reported yesterday, Lamb was arrested after an individual threw a can of paint at the Black Lives Matter mural located on Van Ranst Place, then fled in a vehicle. At approximately 2:30 pm, a citizen advised a VMPD officer, who was on foot patrol, of damage that had just occurred to the BLM mural.

Officers responded to the location and observed a can of paint laying on the ground and tire marks spanning the length of the mural.

In September 2020, the Village Board of Trustees initially voted 3-2 against painting the street mural, but later the same month votes 5-0 to approve painting the mural on Van Ranst Place. The mural, paid for out of private funds, was painted in October.

There is a New Rochelle connection to the BLM mural, the name of Kamal Flowers is painted on the “E” in “LIVES” on the mural. Flowers was shot and killed in New Rochelle on June 5, 2020.

  1. Today, while Mayor Murphy of Mamaroneck Village oozes sympathy for the violent “paint” desecration of a Marxist mural on a public street, “Black Lives Matter” issues a statement supporting the communist regime brutalizing the Cuban people, and blaming the United States for the horrid situation there.

    Liberalism. It’s a disease.

  2. BLM is Anti American Marxist crap, organized and led by Patrisse Cullors and Alicia Garza since 2013. They honed their love for socialism and America hatred at the feet of 1969 Weather Underground leader, and pal of domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, Eric Man.

    The Weather Underground foundational statement explains they were dedicated to “the destruction of U.S. imperialism and the achievement of world communism”.

    It’s beyond humiliating that our political hacks in the Village of Mamaroneck, who it seems would stoop to anything to appease the deluded liberalism in this area and garner votes for the next election, would sanction this garbage painted on a public street.

    The kid deserves a medal. When are people going to wake up in this place?
