Mayor Miro Weinberger Statement on Mass Vandalism

Burlington, Vt. – Today, Mayor Miro Weinberger issued the following statement on the vandalism which occurred this morning in Burlington.

“This morning’s mass vandalism caused widespread destruction and fear in this city that Burlingtonians should not have to endure. It is highly frustrating that the suspect has previously been arrested numerous times by Burlington police, but neither the criminal justice system nor the mental health system has taken the actions necessary to either support Mr. Mafuta or prevent this crime from occurring. Burlington needs help from our law enforcement and mental health partners to sustain the peace and safety that this community has long enjoyed.”
