Crosses honoring the victims of gun violence on Chicago’s South Side are causing controversy.

The 44 crosses were put on display by artist Greg Zanis at 55th and Bishop in Englewood as a memorial meant for the victims of Chicago’s gun violence, KTLA sister station WGN reported.

Early Tuesday, the local group ‘Army of Moms’ announced they planned to remove the crosses later in the day. They say the crosses give the community a bad image. Some argue that the crosses grouped together creates the false and disturbing impression that there was a mass shooting in the area.
