College Football Hall of Fame destroyed, vandalized by looters

College Football Hall of Fame

The College Football Hall of Fame was among the buildings vandalized by looters and protesters in Atlanta on Friday night.

Numerous protests have been ongoing in cities throughout the country the last few nights in response to the death of George Floyd. On Friday, protests occurred in Atlanta, and one of the buildings that was vandalized was the College Football Hall of Fame. Video shows windows being broken at the front of the building and things being ransacked inside.

The College Football Hall of Fame released the following statement:

“First and foremost, our hearts go out to the friends and family of George Floyd. We support the peaceful protests that honor his memory but unfortunately, they deteriorated into chaos and disorder. We are heartbroken to see the damage to our city and the Hall of Fame. As our Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said… We are better than this, better than this as a city, and better than this as a country. In the coming days and weeks, we’ll work to pick up the pieces, to build back the sacred walls that housed memories and honored those who played the game many of whom fought these same injustices throughout their storied careers.”
