Former Prof and BLM Leader Arrested for Allegedly Smearing Abraham Lincoln Statue With Feces

“was found to be in possession of a firearm, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia”

What kind of sick and deranged person does this?

The Blaze reports:

Authorities arrest purported BLM leader, former professor after discovering Abraham Lincoln statue smeared in feces

Authorities arrested a 37-year-old man in connection with a February act of vandalism against a statue of former President Abraham Lincoln.

Police discovered the Lincoln statue in a Boise, Idaho, public park, smeared with feces, paint, and more.

What are the details?

According to the Idaho Statesman, police arrested Terry Wilson on Tuesday night after “physical and electronic evidence” placed him at the scene of February’s crime.

In February, police arrived at Julia Davis Park, where they found a bronze Lincoln statue — known as the “Seated Lincoln” — had been smeared with feces, paint, and more.

The statue was not permanently damaged by the vandalism.

Wilson reportedly tried to flee on Tuesday when officers arrived to arrest him.

“Officers chased after Wilson and were able to stop him and take him into custody, at which time Wilson was found to be in possession of a firearm, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia,” a news release from the police said. “Wilson was taken to the hospital and was medically cleared before being booked into the Ada County Jail.”

Authorities charged him with several misdemeanor counts, including injuring monuments, ornaments, and public improvements; resisting and obstructing officers; and possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. According to KTVB-TV, Wilson was also found with a firearm at the time of his arrest.

I’ll bet the “electronic evidence” was a security camera. Game-trail cameras, activated by movement, are available for about $70. It seems obvious that all cities should have some hidden close to their public monuments.

Why not just shoot fleeing felons? Save a lot of effort and money, and would make a permanent improvement in the country.

Come on, we all know what class of people paints with their own poop. Usually, though, it’s on padded walls.

Happened in Idaho, and he wasn’t a felon, so at least no breathless “illegal firearm” verbiage allowed in news reports.
