Deputies Arrest Protester Accused of Helping Topple Confederate Statue


From Fox 40

Deputies arrested a North Carolina college student for her alleged role in tearing down a Confederate monument during a protest Monday outside Durham County’s former courthouse, WTVD reports.

Takiyah Thompson, 22, is charged with two felony counts – participation in a riot with property damage in excess of $1,500 and inciting others to riot where there is property damage in excess of $1,500 – as well as disorderly conduct by injury to a statue and damage to real property, both misdemeanors.

Thompson was arrested after speaking at a news conference Tuesday, telling the crowd she used a ladder to scale the monument and tie the rope in place to help bring down a statue that “glorifies the conditions that oppressed people live in.”



  1. Its funny how liberalism brings all of the hypocrites out in a big bunch to rape, pillage and destroy everything that they claim to be against. Then they stand on their soap box and brag about doing what they just protested against. They seem to take on a nature that kills their own wounded and eats their own young. Especially if you refuse to glorify them and their anarchist behavior.

    • They do feel they have the moral high ground and their Mantra is “by any means necessary.” so they can justify anything in their mind.
