A mural that went up October 12 in tribute to the late teenager Michael Brown has been removed.

The Trenton Downtown Association had graffiti blasters cover the mural on Monday.

According to theGrio, in the painting, Michael Brown was featured in an American-themed graduation cap and gown with the message: “Sagging pants is not probable cause.” Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri on August 9, sparking protests and civil unrest.

But TDA executive director Christian Martin said police did not feel that the mural promoted peace and a good relationship between residents and their department. NJ.com reported that police asked the TDA to remove the mural after a double shooting took place near the area. The Trenton Police Department said police did not order it to be taken down.
