RALEIGH – With the toppling of Silent Sam on the campus of UNC Chapel Hill Monday night, state politicians are understandably issuing their take on the event. Here’s a sampling of reactions.
Today a Committee was scheduled to discuss next steps on Silent Sam &other historical monuments. Instead,a mob took matters into their own hands, throwing to the wind the rule of law. Regardless of where you find yourself on the political spectrum this is a slippery slope #ncpol pic.twitter.com/cIC4U5VED6
