Durham, N.C. — Charges for three people who are accused of toppling a Confederate monument in downtown Durham have been dropped, according to their defense attorney.

According to defense attorney Scott Holmes, charges were dropped against Aaron Alexander Caldwell, Myles Spigner and Taylor Cook, citing that probable cause exists, but there was not enough evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

On Aug. 14, a group of protesters tore the statue of a Confederate soldier down after a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., ended with one woman dead and almost two dozen injured.

I notice that the patriots in this country are the ones who cannot get any justice. All up and down the line, from Hillary and Huma to these three slugs.

What a surprise. Desecration and destruction of a war memorial, and nothing happens.

That’s OK, these criminals will end up dead sooner than later with a needle in their arm or a drive-by shooting. It goes with their homey lifestyle.

He will lose the election.

As predictable as the sun rising in the east. They would've never been convicted in the liberal city of Durham where these statues would've been knocked down a long time ago had state law not prevented it.

VIDEO OF THE CRIME EXISTS AND HAS BEEN BROADCAST.

What the DA is saying that he doesn’t want to go through the hassle of a jury trial on what should be a slam dunk case only to have the Durham jury pull an OJ.

So if we go and take down statues we don’t like, it’s OK?

Oh Sure!

Try knocking down an MLK statue, see how many Federal Hate crime charges they file on you

No surprise. You can beat up a high profile Republican U.S. Senator and get out of jail in just a few hours too.

“Charges for three people who are accused of toppling a Confederate monument in downtown Durham have been dropped”

If you want more of something, encourage it.

If you want less of something, discourage it.

Naturally. The town officials told law enforcement to let them go, because they actually agree with what the perps did.

What happened to the guy driving the car in Charlottesville VA?

I remember seeing his car attacked with baseball bats prior to him stepping on the gas. Was he let go?

Laws are only for the white man - who has been made a slave to the state.

All others can do as they wish with impunity.

This is a VERY DANGEROUS situation Obama, the leftists and the GOPe have brought us to. It will not end kindly.
