On Monday, a group of rabid leftists surrounded a Confederate monument in Durham, North Carolina, then wrapped a rope around it and pulled it down.
At the time, police stood by and watched as the wild hyenas desecrated the public’s property because they’re triggered by American history, causing many to question why they stood down. But apparently they had a plan through it all, and on Wednesday they arrested the woman seen climbing a ladder to tie a rope around the statue.
From the Herald Sun:
The protester who climbed a ladder to help bring down a Confederate soldier statue was arrested Tuesday, and Sheriff Mike Andrews said his office will pursue felony charges against others.
“Let me be clear, no one is getting away with what happened,” Andrews said.
Takiyah Thompson, a member of Workers World Party and student at N.C. Central University, was arrested after activists held a press conference at NCCU Tuesday afternoon.
In a release Thompson said she was the one who tied a rope around the soldier’s neck so that others could pull the statue to the ground.
The protest left The Confederate Soldiers Monument, dedicated on May 10, 1924, headless on the grass.
Not only did Thompson get arrested, but she was hit with a couple of felonies as well.
Thompson was charged with participation in a riot with property damage in excess of $1,500 (Class H Felony) and inciting others to riot where there is property damage in excess of $1,500 (Class F Felony), the Sheriff’s Office said.
She also was charged with disorderly conduct by injury to a statue and damage to real property, both misdemeanors.
According to the same report, police said they while they may have been merely watching as the agitators ripped the statue down, they were actually using cameras to record the incident so they could arrest the participants later.
As a result, law enforcement said that we can expect to see more arrests. Although it would have been nice if they actually protected public property instead of letting spoiled liberal brats do whatever the hell they want.
