RALEIGH, N.C. -- Police filed charges Friday against three people accused of helping tear down a century-old Confederate statue during a protest this week at North Carolina's flagship university. The charges came as a member of the University of North Carolina Board of Governors said the monument known as Silent Sam will be reinstalled on the Chapel Hill campus within 90 days, CBS Raleigh affiliate WNCN reported.

Orange County District Attorney Jim Woodall confirmed to WNCN that three people face charges of misdemeanor riot and misdemeanor defacing of a public monument. The UNC police department said the three aren't affiliate with the university.

**SNIP**

University and legislative leaders have condemned the protesters' actions as "mob rule," demanding a hard look at the police response and a full criminal investigation. The State Bureau of Investigation has been brought in to assist.

Steinburg said he's worried that weak prosecution of vandals will embolden further attacks on other Confederate monuments across the state. He called law enforcement responses to Silent Sam and another statue toppling in Durham "milquetoast."

Make the perps pay for the restoration.

I miss tear gas, rubber bullets and water canons. I want to see crowds of protestors swimming through the streets riding waves from water canons. What happened to those days when law and order existed.

Because, Liberals.

I bet a leftist judge will let them go with very little punishment.

MAKE them DO THE RESTORATION WORK ! UNDER ARMED CONFEDERATE GUARD.

If they don’t do the work properly bust a round of Rock Salt in their a$$e$ until it’s done correctly.

In fact round up ALL these PunkPerps Nationwide and REFORM Chain Gangs then send ‘em around the Country to Repair or Replace ALL the damage done everywhere.

The police response Monday was much different from the response to a similar protest a year ago. In 2017, officers in riot gear faced criticism for heavy-handed tactics after using metal barricades to keep activists from getting near the statue. The portable barriers weren’t used Monday, and officers didn’t keep protesters away from the statue.

University and legislative leaders have condemned the protesters’ actions as “mob rule,” demanding a hard look at the police response and a full criminal investigation. The State Bureau of Investigation has been brought in to assist.

Police criticized when they acted. Police criticized when they didn’t act. Typical lib response; whatever you do it’s wrong.

Take them out to the woods, put a bullet in their leftist heads, and let the maggots and vultures feast.

Alumni doesn’t mean all that much when you have Chinese money rolling in:
UNC’s partnerships with universities in China include:

Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong
Peking University, Beijing
Tsinghua University, Beijing
University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong

UNC has also developed bilateral relations with schools, departments, or programs with Chinese universities including:

Beijing Sports University, Beijing
China Europe International Business School, Shanghai
China Foreign Affairs University, Beijing
Chinese Academy of Social Science, Beijing
East China University of Science and Technology, Shanghai
Fudan University, Shanghai
Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong
Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong
Jilin University, Changchun
Sichuan University, Chengdu
Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou
Yunnan University, Kunming

Additionally, the UNC School of Education has developed a partnership with a K-12 school in China:

Beijing Royal School, Beijing

As the China Initiative continues to grow, we anticipate partnering with even more institutions and developing even stronger programs. Check back periodically for new developments.

Thanks Libloather. That'll give them 90 days to restore the statue, and the length of the remainiing school year to diiscuss "the right way" to remove the statue.

Everything the dimmo, leftest, fascist chancellor said is BS. The university was behind this totally and the police were most likely instructed to let it happen.

Former Chancellor Sitterson granddaughter proudly admits she was involved because she is ashamed to be white,but apparently not ashamed enough to give up her slot at UNC nor I assume the big fat undeserved scholarship I bet she is getting on some pretense angle none of our children would get, even though, you know, her democratic family of either Lawyers or Doctors from there do not need or really qualify for!!!!!!!!!!!

Her elite status is something everyone should loath, of all colors!!!!!!!!!!!

“The UNC police department said the three aren’t affiliate with the university.”

Outside agitators, a staple of the left.
