Vandals target 'The Watch,' statues celebrating Tuskegee Airmen - chicagotribune.com: A lime-green piece of fiberglass resin lay in the grass Sunday next to a concrete pad where statues paying homage to the Tuskegee Airmen had stood.
“This one is broken,” said 2-year-old David Molina-Kwan, in Chinese, to his mother as he looked up at the brightly colored statue of an aviator-goggle-wearing kid superhero, one of 13 installed on a grass slope along Chicago’s lakefront.
On Sunday morning, Chicago Park District employees were seen repositioning the sculptures, which had been tipped over and vandalized sometime overnight. At least one of them was beheaded. Others had puncture marks in the neck area, and several lost some fingers.
