While attempting to topple Virginia’s Portsmouth Confederate Monument, a protester – likely from Antifa or Black Lives Matter – was struck on the head by a falling statue.
A demonstrator in Virginia sustained a severe head wound after a Confederate statue toppled on top of him Wednesday.
The Black Lives Matter chapter associated with the destruction of the Portsmouth statue identified the man who was injured as Chris Green. Green was allegedly moving people out of the way when the statue landed on him.
The demonstrator in his 30s was reportedly hit so hard by the sculpture that his skull became exposed.
The local authorities should file charges against the rioters who toppled the statues and nearly killed this man. If the man succumbs to his injuries, the police department should at least consider involuntary manslaughter, since their reckless actions caused this tragedy.
