NYPD paints over a legal mural by KET

A mural by Alan Ket, Noxer and Tres (pictured above) was buffed by two NYPD officers this week. Ket says that the store owner was contacted by the police about having the painting removed, even though it was painted legally. Ket was planning to go talk to the police and see what was up, but then the police just went ahead and painted over it. The owner of the store where the wall is let the police go ahead and paint over the wall once they had started because she did not want any problems with them.
