It is not yet known why Anthony Weimer tore down the statue. He now faces a felony charge of criminal mischief.
KALISPELL, Montana, July 1, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) Police have arrested 30-year-old Anthony Weimer for pulling down a statue of the Ten Commandments outside Flathead County Courthouse in northeastern Montana.
The Kalispell Police Department said calls came in on Saturday that a male was on the Flathead County Courthouse grounds, and appeared to be wrapping a chain around the Ten Commandments monument, reported the local NBC station. Officials say those callers saw the man attach the chain to a pickup truck, and then pull the monument into the street. Police say the man reportedly removed the chain, then got into the truck and left the scene.
The officers were later able to find the truck used to tear down the statue, and then arrested the subject, who now faces a felony charge of criminal mischief.
It is not yet known why Weimer tore down the statue. According to local newspaper Flathead Beacon, Kalispell Chief of Police Doug Overman said his office has no evidence that Weimers action is connected to any protest movement.
Even in remote Flathead County, with less than 20 inhabitants per square mile, a number of heavily armed people surrounded the Veterans Memorial in Kalispells Deport Park to protect it from vandals who never arrived, and a small group of Black Lives Matter protesters had previously gathered outside the old Flathead County Courthouse, where the statue pulled down on Saturday was located.

Don’t tell me lemme guess...White supremacist. Or Russian operative
What a fool. He probably thought he was impressing his ‘friends’.
“You SAY you hate those Deplorables, right?
then PROVE IT! See that 10 Commandments block over there?
Tear it DF Down....NOW!!!!”
Now he’s sitting in jail and none of his ‘friends’ have come by to bail him out yet! What gives?
We need to place a monument with the ten commandments in the middle of each inner city.
The idea that you should not steal, covet, commit adultery,
and should honor your parents, is so alien to the entire inner city culture that one can mourn this guidance was ever removed from schools.
(And one can wonder what in the world the inner city clergy has been doing for the past 50 years...)
Commiespell sucks. Anytime I see a MT plate that starts with the number 7 I avoid the occupants. Same with 4 (Bozeman).
Rich Cali libs moved to Montana in large numbers.
Lets see how they like getting run over by armored vehicles!
Wouldnt wanna be him on Judgement Day.
What have Clergy been doing the last 50 years?
I suspect most have been giving up and/or giving in just to keep the parish monies flowing in.
Attach a lien to everything he owns to pay for the new one.
Interesting how those laws, 3000 years old, only TEN of them, still drives people mad today. It is not a statue or an idol, only ten laws engraved in stone.
We had one tore down in Oklahoma and Arkansas a few years back.
A lein on everything except his windows. All of his windows. He will get the picture.
***Rich Cali libs moved to Montana in large numbers.***
They will definitely ruin your state. They have ruined Oregon, Washington, Colorado an New Mexico.
He was tired of the Anthony Weiner jokes and took it out on a monument.
Most sacred words in all of Judaism. The Jews will become the target eventually of all this talibanism. As they always have
Get behind me, (spawn of) satan!
sad for them, its coming...
Yeh, there is certainly a segment of Jewish people who give their full throated support to ideologies that ultimately scape goat them. Soviet Union a case in point. I think they identify with anyone they see as a victim, given their history. But no matter how much suppport some of them give to BLM, the inherent racism of black identity politics, will turn on them. Farrakhan an example
