A newly-opened memorial park dedicated to fallen hero Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Officer Alyn Beck was vandalized.

Las Vegas, NV – A community park memorializing a Las Vegas Metropolitan police officer who died in the line of duty was vandalized and more than $50,000 in damage was done.

Las Vegas deputy city marshals on a routine patrol that included the Alyn Beck Memorial Park on the morning of April 16 noticed trees down in the parking lot, KTNV reported.

So the deputy city marshals investigated further and discovered that a number of trees that lined the basketball court inside the brand-new park had also been snapped at the base or had all their branches sawed off.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Officer Alyn Beck and his partner, Officer Igor Soldo, were murdered in an ambush on June 8, 2014 as they sat eating pizza in the 300 block of North Nellis Boulevard, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page.

A man and a woman approached the officers at the table where they were having lunch and shot them both execution-style.

Then the suspects stole the officers’ weapons and ammunition and fled to a nearby Walmart, the Officer Down Memorial Page reported.

The suspects killed a civilian before police engaged them in a gunfight.

An officer fatally shot the male suspect and then the female suspect committed suicide, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page.

Officer Beck was an almost 14-year veteran of the police force, and he left a wife and three children behind when he was murdered.

The Alyn Beck Memorial Park dedicated to the brave hero’s memory opened on Jan. 31, 2020, KTNV reported.

In addition to a basketball court, the park features athletic fields, a water-play area, a playground, shade cabanas, and benches, and had been attractively landscaped with trees.

Each of the trees that was destroyed was valued at $2,200, KTNV reported.

City officials said that total damage came to about $55,000, the Las Vegas Sun reported.

Rotten, oozing anal pustules would not be a good enough punishment.

I didn't read if there were security camera there or not. If not.......let's put some in. I couldn't imagine who would do such a thing......relatives of those shot, who shot the officers??? Rot in hell. You have no place in a civilized society.

I think it would be great to find an island and put all the murderers, rapists, child molesters there........all those who inflicts harm on anyone. Give them materials to build their homes, tools to plant their own food, etc. and lets see how far they get. Those the strongest MAY survive even though they don't deserve to.

The people who do this type of thing are the first to criticize police officers. It's sickening behavior from a segment of society that should be behind bars, not free to victimize others.

This makes me sick, obviously anti cop creeps, glad they are dead. To vandalize a park dedicated to a memory of a fallen officer who was just having something to eat and execute him is so insane. This park was for everyone to enjoy as well. This cop hating we can thank the Democrats for, cops bad, criminals had a bad childhood, Screw that.

I wonder if the City will restore the park to it's original condition? Hopefully with security cameras. How about a "go fund me" effort to make sure "no budget for repairs" doesn't happen. I'd kick some bucks that way...

Disgusting. Find them and force them into community service to clean, clear trash, broom, and be forced to take care of the greenery. Keep it clean for the summer. It gets dirty and sabotaged? Fix it or out goes the warrant . Even if it was a friend who helped destroy stuff in the first place.
Maybe a lesson will be taught but we didn't need the place wrecked.
