So the "Protest" and attempt to remove the Andrew Jackson Statue in the name of Black Lives Matter because "racist or something" kinda fizzled out. And General Jackson is still there.
I did not get arrested. But four or five losers did, including this one who called on everyone to follow him over the police line, and then, after jumping it, was surprised to find himself alone...well alone except for these nice officers.
There were police on foot and on horses.
I hung around with them for a while at their rally point in Congo Square, taking all their pictures, but finally they started noticing me and taking MY picture, so I figured that was a good time to just go back to the statue and wait on them.
Oh--and David Duke was there too.
The toads get repulsed when they tried to rush the statue. NOPD got in there FAST with the horses and closed the gap, and they only tried once. (See pic of arrested guy above.) Then they marched off down Decatur Street, a few throwing small balloons filled with paint at police and EMS vehicles from the safety of the middle of their crowd. By then I'd had enough so I went to get beer and came home. Nap time now, because Saturday night starts in a few hours.
