Virginia Democrat State Senator Hit with Felony Charges for Vandalizing Confederate Monument in Portsmouth
Portsmouth, Va. Police Chief Angela Greene made an announcement on Monday that Democrat state senator Louise Lucas along with NAACP members, public defenders and school board members are being charged with felonies for their role in vandalizing the city’s Confederate monument in June.
Greene is attempting to identify 13 other individuals who were involved in the violent display, which resulted in a man being seriously injured after the statue fell on his head.
Portsmouth Mayor John Rowe wrote a letter to City Council regarding the “false statements” made by Sen. Lucas. He claims that Sen. Lucas lied on a police dash cam video when she claimed the mayor had condoned the “actions which followed,” meaning the desecration of the Confederate monument. Sen. Lucas would later clarify that she never talked to Mayor Rowe.
“He was on the phone with Vice Mayor Lisa Lucas-Burke when I was on the phone with Dr. Lydia Patton. I was inquiring about the NAACP Officers being arrested and she told me that no one was going to be arrested,” she said.
Big League Politics reported about the gruesome aftermath of the mob terror spree that resulted in a man being put into a coma:
A mob member who was struck with a Confederate monument after Black Lives Matter rioters brought it down is now in a medically-induced coma and may die as a result of his injuries.
Protester Chris Green was taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital on Wednesday night after a piece of the confederate statue fell on his head at a Portsmouth, Va. riot. He flatlined twice on his way to the hospital, and has remained in critical condition ever since.
Green’s wife, Tonieh Brisbane-Green is worried about her husband and admonished the recklessness of the Black Lives Matter rioters who attended the rally.
Tonieh said that she supported the protests “but do it in a peaceful manner. There was no need to do all of that especially while there were so many people around that statue knowing that somebody’s going to get hurt.” She added that doctors “were surprised he even made it because that thing [the statue] is so heavy.”
“I just feel like I’m in a dream right now. Like, I just need to be pinched to wake up and everything will go back to normal,” Tonieh said.
Tonieh described how she believes her husband was an innocent bystander, and the rowdy nature of the crowd made it difficult for him to receive medical attention immediately following his injury.
“So he didn’t even see it coming, like, ‘Oh, let me move out of the way,’” Tonieh said. “And then I heard it was hard for the ambulance to even get to because of the crowds…
Councilman Nathan Clark noted the danger of that these mob events are causing.
“I watched several videos today that showed individuals climbing on the monument. If one of those had fallen off onto that new fence that is there and impaled themself and seriously injured or killed, I would believe that the city would have the lawsuit filed against us,” Clark said.
“I agree that, I’m very concerned about the vandalism. And there were even children climbing up on there. Saw one little boy that couldn’t have been more than 10 or 11 years old. He was barely as tall as the fence, and he was up by one of the soldier statues and then climbing down and over the fence, and that is concerning that somebody could get hurt,” he added.
Justice may finally be served to Democrat leaders who are fomenting mob terrorism and believe they are above the law.
