NYPD covers up mural that calls police 'murderers'

New York City police officers have painted over a mural that listed the NYPD as "murderers" along with global corporations.

The mural was on the side of a dry cleaner in Upper Manhattan for five days. Two plainclothes police officers were dispatched with paintbrushes to cover it up on Tuesday.

Graffiti artist Alan Ket had painted it with the business owner's permission. But owner Maria Curet said she did not confront the police officers because she didn't want trouble.

Ket said the mural was partly inspired by the fatal February shooting of unarmed drug suspect Ramarley Graham in the Bronx.

A police officer was indicted last month in Graham's shooting. He has pleaded not guilty to manslaughter.
