NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Crews painted over “Save a life, Kill a cop” graffiti that was discovered on the side of a vacant tractor-trailer in west Nashville Wednesday morning.
The phrase was discovered by a woman who works nearby, who immediately called police, at 33rd and Charlotte avenues around 7:30 a.m.
Rachel Tidwell with Ewing Bass Garage and Transmission told News 2 the graffiti was done overnight.
“Everybody in the neighborhood is trying to bring it up, make it a better neighborhood
for everybody, and it’s been moving very well. But at this point, that’s just highly offensive,” she said.
Tidwell explained it’s not a message she wants spread through the neighborhood, and she hopes “they’ll figure out who did it.”
Linda Breaux, who works with the nearby Bro’s Cajun Cuisine, said she didn’t think it was a good thing at all.
“We need our law officers to help us,” she added. “Here they’re trying to do their work for the city and people like that take time to write a message.”
Additional information was not immediately released. An investigation is underway.
