Mack in N.C.

flash back 3~ years ago so and few hundred people or so wanted to take down the Confederate Soldier in Graham. Est. 5000 showed up and said "Not today"

(also for those that dont know Pittsboro's statue now gone along with Graham's and Yanceyville's statues are pretty much in a line South to North and were set up facing north towards Northern Agression. )

Today I had to make my way from Cary to Burlington/Graham (my hometowns) and at around 6 ish I drive by the CourtHouse and all I will tell you is if they try to take it down tonight it will not be their night. Lots and lots of people flying flags hanging out etc. 4 wheel drives, bikers , regular people. Lots of Deputies standing guard. Sheriff Terry Johnson has said it is not coming down under his watch. It was a nice sight to see.

I'm disappointed I didn't get some kind of PM from any of my friends asking me to come up, safeguard, and maybe cook.

Sorry Mack, but it'll be taken down under the cover of darkness and when no one is looking, probably during a holiday weekend. They are ALL coming down sir.

It may but not under the present mindset of the people in Alamance co and Sherriff. if it ever does come down it will be one of the last ones. The Sheriff has already said anyone trying to take it down will be shot.

Hey Mack give them Ol Roy's address and tell them to go whine to him. Oh I forgot the bus doesn't"t go that way and it's too far for them to walk.

With Pooper in charge those statues that represent “white supremacy” will be coming down. He’s an ass and needs to go. We’ve lost all sense of history.

And in NC in 2016 there were 10.1 million people and now there are 10.5. Sure was a lot of people not voting.

Looks like a 9 pm curfew has been put in place. Some guy named Hightower and another guy were arrested. Minor infractions...minor.

Maybe not tonight, maybe not tomorrow, but they will come down. It is impossible to police a determined mob, who are offended by pancake syrup and "cops" reruns. And good luck getting any help out of a government, that is only able to screw up our gas cans.

All this stuff going on without consequences and come labor day, every guy that forgot to put his plug back in his shotgun is going to get a ticket for being able to load more than three shells. Crazy times we live in.
Those game wardens are tough!

It will be taken down in broad daylight with a crane and city workers doing it. The squeaky wheel knows how to work the system the silent majority has yet to speak up. Congratulations silent majority you are sitting on your hands ad watching your country crumble.

I’ve always found it interesting that game wardens deal with armed people all the time and you never hear about them fearing for their life or “just trying to make it home” they are also well versed in the laws that pertain to their job. I’m not bashing the police at all but the conduct I’ve experienced from both I would say the GWs are trained far better.

If every officer went through the training game wardens and troopers go through we would have a lot less problems

Happened in Wilmington last night under the cover of darkness due to publi safety concerns

County commissioners had one taken down here in Granville Co. yesterday, in the interest of public safety after a credible threat.

Yes most of them are armed but 90% of the people that game wardens deal with are just like most members on this site., which is a far cry from what police officers deal with almost daily.
