According to local ABC affiliate ABC11, protesters take down a Confederate statute in Durham, North Carolina on Monday. More on the story, per ABC11:

DURHAM, North Carolina (WTVD) --

Protesters in Durham rushed and toppled a Confederate statue outside the courthouse on Monday evening.

The monument of a Confederate soldier holding a rifle was erected in 1924 and inscribed on it are the words "in memory of the boys who wore the gray."

Josh Kaplan, a reporter for ABC11, shared video of what went down on his Facebook and Twitter accounts.

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.
