City spokesperson claimed the monument was being cleaned, but had no answer as to when the moumument would return or why sod was being laid by grounds crew where the granite stone honored confederate troops once stood.
Charlotte police believe the monument was spray painted between 6 p.m. Tuesday and 6:45 a.m. Wednesday.
NC lawmakers introduced a bill back in February that would make it harder to remove monuments like the ones vandalized. Senate Bill 22 would forbid the removal of any memorial, statue or plaque that commemorates part of North Carolina's history without state approval.
Cedars Take: Utter Bullshit! Frankly I don't care about the monument but we have a city county government that continually lies to taxpayers, whether it is re-valuation, storm water fees, water bills, tax increases, mental health care operation, travel expenses for council and the mayor, the street car, Time Warner Cable Arena, or Panthers Stadium improvements. The list is unending and troubling and proves they think you are stupid!
Monday July 20, 2015 Cedar Update: Contrary to reports in both print and digital media that Senate Bill 22 was just introduced, it was in fact presented in February and passed the NC Senate in April. As recently as July 20th democrats tried to add amendments to limit protection of confederate memorials and statues were defeated.
