In an exclusive interview, Republican candidate for Tennessee House of Representatives Lee Mills tells ‘Wake Up Memphis’ with Robyn Walensky police detectives are currently reviewing multiple surveillance cameras in an effort to arrest those responsible for the vandalism at his home and two other homes. The common thread is all three Shelby County leaders are Republican and pro-police.Mills tells Walensky “several clear videos exist of cars being driven into the neighborhood in the wee hours.”
Currently, no arrests have been made.
“Wednesday night, while we were sleeping, our property was vandalized with pink paint and our yard was strewn with papers, leaflets that had various defund the police messages on them,” Mills tells ‘Wake Up Memphis,’ “it was just an invasion of our personal space.”Mills says the problem in our country right now is that “we talk at each other and we don’t talk to each other.” He says we need to send the message that this vandalism is not acceptable. When he and his wife, Shelby County Commissioner Amber Mills, first saw the vandalism at their own home, “Our first thought was, ‘it’s finally come to us.’”
“We need people to stand in the gap between what’s right and what’s wrong and say ‘stop,'” Mills tells ‘Wake Up Memphis,’ “and until we do that, this type of behavior is going to continue.”
