About time they went after these rioters destroying public property. Abraham Lincoln was an admitted white supremacist too. Will these crazies destroy the Lincoln memorial next?

Charges sought against those who toppled Confederate statue

Aaug 15 2017 Investigators are working to identify and charge protesters who toppled a nearly century-old Confederate statue in front of a North Carolina government building, the sheriff said Tuesday.

Durham County Sheriff Mike Andrews issued a statement that investigators are using video footage to identify those responsible for toppling the statue during a rally Monday night.

Law enforcement officers took video throughout the protest but didn't intervene as protesters brought out a ladder, climbed up to attach a rope and then pulled the bronze Confederate soldier from its pedestal. After it fell, some began kicking the statue, while others took photos standing or sitting on it. The protest was in response to violence and a death at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend.

Why are these lefties so hateful towards the confederacy anyway?. Do they actually think the civil war was about freeing slaves?? The idea is not only wrong, it is absurd since.

1. There were 4 UNION states (KY MD DE MO) that were slave states throughout the war. Had a total of 300,000 slaves.

2. There were many UNION generals that were slave owners during the war. Grant himself owned a slave during the war and his wife had a lot of slaves.

Stonewall Jackson and his wife had a school for black children in defiance of the law.

When Democrats want something, as Obama and Hillary have demonstrated in the past, they don't let a little thing like THE LAW stand in their way. In NC, a member of the minority of Americans who want Confederate statues pulled won did just that in NC, breaking the law to topple a nearly century-old statue of a Confederate soldier...law be damned.

Yeah....and now the criminal is being sought for his crime!

Criminal charges sought for protesters who toppled Confederate statue in North Carolina

"When protesters, angry over the deadly incidents in Virginia this weekend, decided to take down a nearly century-old statue of a Confederate soldier in North Carolina on Monday, law enforcement stood back and watched.

At no time did officers with the Durham Police Department or deputies with the Durham County Sheriff’s Office intervene as activists brought a ladder up to the statue and used a rope to pull it down, according to multiple media reports.

No one was arrested Monday, however, a day later, Durham County Sheriff Mike Andrews announced investigators were working to identify the protesters and planned to bring criminal charges against them."



Once again, police sat back on their asses and watched as snowflakes committed another crime, surrendering to lawlessness. These police should be fired for failure to do their job / up-hold the law.

Will Trump pay for their defense like he offered to pay for the defense of any of his cult members who beat up protesters at his rallies?

I'd be more interested in charges being brought to bear on the Antifa terrorists for inciting a riot.

One's position on the statues is irrelevant. These people destroyed public property. While some may find it justified in that particular case it's not hard to see where the road of allowing vigilante justice takes us.
