Graffiti on memorial removed

The graffiti on the Wisconsin law enforcement memorial at the state Capitol has been removed. 

On Saturday morning, officials discovered the memorial outside the state Capitol was spray-painted with the words "#Justice4AnthonySmith," a reference to protests in St. Louis.

The phrase is in reference to protests that began Friday after the acquittal of former St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley in the 2011 shooting death of 24-year-old Anthony Smith, who was black. 

Capitol police are investigating and the vandalism.
