Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “California city takes immediate action after 'racist' banner declaring 'White Lives Matter' found in park”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Officials in a northern California promptly removed a "White Lives Matter" that was posted on city property over the weekend, declaring the sign a "despicable act of vandalism."

According to KPIX-TV, police in Union City — a town not far from Oakland — took down the banner early Saturday morning. Law enforcement conducted an investigation into the banner, but concluded that no crime had been committed.

The crux of the issue, according to Union City Mayor Carol Dutra-Vernaci, is that whoever erected the banner did not have the proper permit to place it on city-owned property.

"The city is disgusted by this despicable act of vandalism that has occurred on the heels of the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last week and on the weekend of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday that celebrates the life and achievements of this important civil rights leader," the city said, KTVU-TV reported.

City leaders also said they will "remain on heightened alert to make sure racist incidences like this do not happen again in our community."
