Vandals target construction site

Vandals targeted a Lansing construction site, leaving their message for plenty of people to see.

They put up the words “Black Lives Matter” several times across the top of the parking structure for the SkyVue apartments along the 3100 block of E. Michigan Ave.

One row down, it says “All Cops Are Pigs”.

It also says “Let Kinross Burn” and “Solidarity With Kinross Prison Rebels.”

The Kinross Correctional Facility is a prison in the Upper Peninusla.

A spokesman for the Michigan Department of Corrections says there was a protest at the prison on September 10th, when some 400 inmates filled the yard demanding various things, including reforms to the criminal justice system.

Once the protest was over, corrections officials say officers went in to get some 150 inmates who were seen as leading the effort.

They say the inmates revolted, breaking windows, sinks, and doing damage to the housing units.

The damage has since been repaired and corrections officials say there have been no other problems at Kinross or any other facility since then.
