If you thought toppling Confederate monuments was the sole province of ne’er-do-well youths and people who have nothing going on in their lives, feast your eyes on Virginia State Sen. Louise Lucas. The Democrat politician is being charged with “conspiracy to commit a felony and felony injuring to a monument in excess of $1,000″ for her role in facilitating the impromptu destruction of a Confederate monument in Portsmouth last month.
From CNS News:
Other people for whom felony warrants were issued included NAACP Representatives James Boyd, Louie Gibbs, and LaKesha Hicks, and city School board member LaKeesha S. Atkinson. Nine other people were also charged.
The criminal charges are related to the June 10 toppling of a statue at a Confederate Monument in Portsmouth, Va., where one man was severely injured when the statue fell on him.
“Several individuals conspired and organized to destroy the monument as well as summon hundreds of people to join in the felonious acts, which not only resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage to the monument but also permanent injury to an individual,” said Police Chief Greene.
The Washington Post reported that Sen. Lucas was caught on video urging police not to arrest the demonstrators on June 10, telling the cops that they were only going to paint the monument.
As if you can just take it upon yourself to deface public property if you so choose!
“They’re going to put some paint on this thing and y’all cannot arrest them,” Lucas told the police. “You need to call Dr. Patton because they’re going to do it. You can’t stop them. This is city property, all right. They got a right to go ahead.”
Listen to that ignorance. Who votes for these morons? You can’t arrest someone because it’s city property? What an absolute fool. Not only did her absurd intervention allow the monument to be destroyed, it ultimately resulted in the statue falling on some guy’s head, giving him “life-altering” injuries. In what world is this considered responsible governance?
We look forward to Sen. Lucas’s arrest and harsh prosecution. It’s time to send a message to these radicals that their anarchy will not be tolerated in a land of laws.
