2013-04-07 "Memorials of Officer Jim Capoot defaced in Vallejo"

from "Vallejo Times-Herald" []:
Two memorials to slain Vallejo Officer Jim Capoot were defaced in the last week. The incidents seemed to have occurred between Wednesday and Thursday night, police said Saturday. In the memorial on Rollingwood Drive, an image of Capoot was spray-painted white, while the image of slain Officer Jeff Azuar was left untouched.
Additionally, the Vallejo Police Activities League mural on Wallace Avenue was again defaced. Capoot's image was also spray-painted white in that case, with swear words written around it as well as the slogan "fight the power."
Police vowed to continuously clean the memorials, and said neighbors were also keeping a watchful eye. Capoot was shot and killed in November 2011 as he pursued a robbery suspect in North Vallejo. Azuar was killed in April 2000 as he tried to serve a warrant.
