Jefferson Davis Statue Brought Down In Protest.


Confederacy President Jefferson Davis's statue is no longer standing.

A crowd toppled a statue and left it in the middle of an intersection.

The Davis statue stood since 1907 and was eventually picked up by a flatbed tow truck as protesters chanted "F**k that statue!"

Christopher Columbus got 2 of his monuments beheaded and in the UK, slave trader Edward Colton's statue was tossed into a river.

Davis could be the first domino to fall in Richmond which also has statues honoring Generals Robert E. Lee and "Stonewall" Jackson.
