Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Remember the Indians who tore down the Columbus statue on the capitol grounds, as Capitol Police stood by and did nothing?
Governor Walz promised there would be “consequences.” Haven’t noticed any news articles about charges being filed. Did they get a time out? Double secret probation?
What exactly are the consequences for destroying government property? I’m feeling oppressed by the health department. Can I go burn it down?
If the “Penalty” for destroying statuary is nervous foot-shuffling and occasional statements with no followup, I’m totally going after that Floyd Olson statue.
