    Isn't it more important that we "take down" violent criminal gangs before historical statues?

    It is really interesting. Tearing down a monument is highly illegal - obviously. But it is the same rhetoric used to say that a person who commits the crime of crossing our border illegally is not a criminal.
    We must be going crazy. Politicians pandering for immunity or giving support to these lunatics will be hurt by it as that radical of a bent is not very large.

    Hell, yes, Demas, any fool should know that, but apparently they don't. (Please excuse this angry woman.) But taking down an organized gang is dangerous work. I'm not sure our police are up to it. They've let the gangs go for so long that some of them have better weapons are are better trained than the police. It is well documented that some of our ex-military go back home and join gangs and train them in military style and also of gang activity while in the military.

    The taking down of historical statues is just an ugly demonstration of Chicken Littles who can't constructively contribute to society.
