Freedom Park Sign Vandalized

Posted: Updated:

   The Anniston Police Department is looking for the person or people responsible for burning a sign at Freedom Riders Park.

  The sign was damaged by the fire late Saturday night.  Now police are asking for witnesses who say anyone or any cars near the park on Highway 202 Sunday night to call them.

  Construction began on the park on October 18.  The park will commemorate the 1961 Freedom Rider bus fire bombing. It's the same spot where a mob burned a bus carrying Freedom Riders 50 years ago.
