Video: Protesters Destroy Confederate Monument In Durham County, NC

It’s just that like the commercial… “I’m not a security guard, I’m a security monitor” the problem is they are paid to enforce the law. Why aren’t these people being hauled off in handcuffs? Should be easy enough to prosecute since it’s all on film.

What’s up next, tearing down George Washington monument because it promotes White Privilege or something?
