Jefferson Davis Monument Vandalized in Greensboro

On Friday, September 8th, the Jefferson Davis Monument in downtown Greensboro, North Carolina, was vandalized.

The monument was spray-painted with graffiti reading “Tear Them Down.” According to the Triad City Beat, Greensboro PD Detective EA Early said that a passerby called-in the graffiti at around 9:30 a.m.

At around 11:00 a.m., Pete D’Abrosca captured a brief Periscope before the graffiti was removed by city employees:

By 1:00 p.m., the graffiti had been cleaned, and the monument was restored to its original form. Kudos to the City of Greensboro for perhaps the speediest work in government history.
