Slideshow Charlottesville Solution: Build More Monuments
By Cheryl K. Chumley - The Washington Times
Charlottesville is coming to a city near you — count on it.
In fact, it just did in Durham, where angry protesters surrounded the Confederate Soldiers Monument and pulled it down, crashing its bronze body that stood for more than 100 years, and kicking and spitting at it.
A woman was arrested in that melee — Takiya Fatima Thompson — and charged with two felonies tied to vandalism and participating in a riot. Local law enforcement officials are working off video of the incident to identify, arrest and charge others involved.
