The memorial went up in the neighborhood where Campbell, 27, lived. It included candles, balloons and empty liquor bottles. A pair of white t-shirts were taped to a red brick wall, with handwritten messages on them including “thug in peace” and “see you on the other side.”
“I don’t think that a few residents are going to express the sentiment of a city like Jersey City, and I’m not going to have it. So we had it taken down last night,” Mayor Steven Fulop told 1010 WINS’ Glenn Schuck. Fulop previously said the memorial showed “ignorance” and was “disgusting.”
The memorial was erected just a block away from the scene of an unrelated police-involved shooting early Tuesday.
Some people in the area told Schuck the memorial should’ve remained.
