Just about every day we see this in our Democrat run cities.

Why would Chicago waste police and resources to protect the statue of a mass murdering idiot?

Especially given that he NEVER set foot in America, let alone "discovered it".

Maybe to enforce law and order?  Or common decency?  Civility? 

It kind of works like this.  You allow violent mobs to destroy property, you have lost total control.
So, if it is OK to destroy statues at will, it would be just fine to burn down churches.  You know,
those Christian establishments that fed people to the lions, initiated the wholly wars, and most
recently sexually assaulted children?

And, as we have seen, when the city is burning, the criminals loot. 

And they attack police.

And we have just about achieved the goal of total anarchy.

And when that happens, historically, those with the guns usually win.
And a lot of people will need to die.

First of all, the tally of police killing civilians is still WAY ahead of the reverse.

Columbus plundered the Caribbean, murdering tens of thousands of innocent islanders.  That is ALL he did.  Common decency and civility would be to remove the statue, so protestors don't have to take matters into their own hands.

That's a given.  But when you have no control over your own life, and can be shot in a moments notice just because of the colour of your skin, maybe you're sick and tired of having to walk past a statue every day that reminds you that you are less than human.

And if setting fire to a building finally gets the attention of the nation, and the world - then burn, baby, burn.

Again, straw man argument.  This is apples and oranges. 

If 200 deaf men want to set fire to a church in Milwaukee - they've earned that right.  No one gave a shit about them when they were seeking justice quietly.

IS your city burning right now?  Are criminals looting as we speak?  How many cities in the US are LITERALLY burning and being looted RIGHT NOW?  US service workers are planning a walk out on July 20.  Let's see what they set on fire and rob, shall we?

Not as much as the police attack them.

You're forgetting - 46% of the world's guns are in American hands.

A LOT of people are going to die.  You're hurtling towards another civil war.

And there are more guns in the US than people.

And there are people like you - on BOTH SIDES - who would rather just shoot someone who votes differently than debate with them.

How is this for "poetic justice"?

The lily livered mayor of Chicago, in a press release on Monday, stated: I will not allow Federal's into Chicago to terrorize our residents.

On Tuesday, 14 people were shot when gang members and "mourners" had a shoot out at a funeral home.  The so called mourners shot back.  Witnesses stated; there was bodies all over the place, it was as if I was looking at a war zone!

It seems like the residents are, in fact, terrorizing themselves! 

The Chicago police union leader/Fraternal Order of Police president, sent a letter to Mr. Trump, asking for federal troops/LEO's to deal with the protesters, so they can get on with dealing with the above crimes.

?What are you saying Jen?  That the police should simply stand by and ignore crimes as they are being committed in front of them?

How about this very SIMPLE solution? 

The protestors go through official channels and request that the city remove the statue and lay out the reasons why? The city could then relocate it a museum or a strong Italian - American enclave.  I am sure the lily livered liberal politician, we call a "mayor", will oblige.  Taking matters into their own hands and causing criminal damage to public property is not the solution.  I am, in fact, kind of shocked that, being the intelligent person that you come off as being, would encourage criminal activity and not support law enforcement!
