Derrick Lewis, who is a reporter from the local CBS affiliate, was able to share some quality video of the event.

The local ABC and CBS affiliates described these criminals as “protesters.” They took down the statue with nylon rope.

The statue is known as the Confederate Soldiers Monument. Here, it is described by Documenting the American South.

An armed and uniformed soldier stands atop a granite tower adorned with the Confederate seal. On the base of the monument are four stone cannon balls and two lighted lamps. In total the monument stands approximately fifteen feet high.

These people were defacing property and tearing down history, yet the mainstream media think it’s fine. You can’t erase history, no matter how hard the left tries.
