Vandals Destroy Statue in Durham; Cops Claim They'll Prosecute



Police say they'll catch the villains, but I doubt that. The Left has carte blanche to assault and vandalize and even detonate the occasional bomb. Pointing this out gets you labeled as being part of an "alternate reality" even by the alleged rightwing opinion media.

Note the cops stood down and permitted this to happen.

Durham County Sheriff Mike Andrews said investigators were working to identify and charge those involved in the toppling of a Confederate monument. Leftwing “protestors” toppled the monument on Monday while law enforcement stood down.

“We decided that restraint and public safety would be our priority,” Sheriff Andrews said in a statement. “As the Sheriff, I am not blind to the offensive conduct of some demonstrators nor will I ignore their criminal conduct.”

The crowd of a few dozen “vandalized” ...

Sneer quotes around "vandalized" because the media isn't sure that destroying a public statue is vandalism.

...the Confederate statue in wake of the violence on Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia...

“My deputies showed great restraint and respect for the constitutional rights of the group expressing their anger and disgust for recent events in our country. Racism and incivility have no place in our country or Durham.”

The Confederate Soldiers Monument in Durham, North Carolina was dedicated in 1924. It depicted a bronze Confederate soldier holding a rifle in front of a pedestal inscribed with the words: “In Memory of the Boys Who Wore The Gray.”
