More than 8 vehicles, mailboxes and garage doors were all spray painted blue grey and red with profanity or damaged in some other way. All the vandalism took place on South Lincoln and South Washington in Union sometime over Saturday night. Union Police contacted Walmart to inquire if any paint was purchased over night. The manager stated she would look in to it however, it was unlikely they would be able to determine how much and when the spray paint was purchased. All victims were told to provide cost of repair statements. At this time no suspects have been identified.

The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
