WEST MEMPHIS — Authorities say two women have been arrested over vandalizing the new Fallen Officers Memorial in West Memphis.

According to police, the women etched words into the memorial while their children threw rocks at the wall. Memphis television station WMC reported that one of the women reportedly carved her own name into the memorial, which honors officers who died in the line of duty.

Nineteen-year-old Lacey Rose Friddle and 25-year-old Jessica May Lapradd were arrested Saturday and remained jailed Monday morning on suspicion of criminal mischief and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Jail records don't list attorneys.

The memorial opened less than two weeks ago, about four years after two West Memphis officers were shot to death during a traffic stop.

These two don't have enough to do. Give them something, please.

Please remove their children from their care - if they don't, they will become "thugs in training".

They both look very amused by it all in their mug shots.

They now should have to pay for the repairs, and their work release should be working in that area cleaning

This is a serious slap in the face for the men and women sworn to serve and protect the public and they are teaching their children to be disrespectful to law enf. I hope they are made to pay to have the memorial repaired and additional community service.

Why do so many women smile in their mugshots? We're they drunk too? The should be ashamed.

Sad to see. Obviously clueless women that have no idea what serving your country is about. Hopefully they'll get lots of time to to better understand.
