Judge temporarily blocks removal of UofL Confederate monument

 

Via comment by Ray on Kentucky Confederate monument to be removed after ...": "Injunction on the grounds of irreparable harm. He has also pointed out that the Monument may not be removed without approval of the Ky. Senate. He has asked the court for a "stay" pending a ruling."---Ray (from WDRB Louisville) 
 5/2/16. "As of 09:45 DST a superior court judge has issued an order blocking the removal pending action by "appropriate authority" as the Senate won't meet again this year without a "special session" and the courts are backed up to hell and gone, This could take a while, UNLESS somebody has some real political clout, or big, BIG money in this game"---Ray


A judge has temporarily barred the city of Louisville from removing a 70-foot-tall Confederate monument from the University of Louisville campus.
Jefferson Circuit Judge Judith McDonald-Burkman signed a restraining order Monday morning forbidding the city from moving the 121-year-old obelisk honoring Kentuckians who died fighting for the Confederacy in the Civil War.

  1. Now it is crucial that
    the defenders of Confederate
    history (in the immediate AO)
    hastily organize a defense
    of the monument.
    I guarantee that seditious shitbags
    and communists will trying to
    vandalize it with graffiti within the next
    24 hours (if not sooner).
    Bet on it.

  2. The VA Flaggers send out monument watches....lord it's sad when you have to do that ! But, as Cav Med has above pointed out with an obvious call out, those vandal idiots will go out and do what they do. I don't know about ya'll but I would NEVER have dreamed people would do this to ANY monument in the United States, ever.....especially war memorials
