We are halfway through our fourth week of Monument Guards in Richmond, and are thrilled to report that things APPEAR to have quieted down in the Capital of the Confederacy.The Va Flaggers have coordinated patrols of the city's monuments each night since June 26, when one of our folks surprised a vandal in the act of defacing the Jefferson Davis Monument. Thanks to information they were able to provide, and evidence left at the scene, the perpetrator was subsequently arrested and convicted.
Thank you, David, for the gifts of appreciation, and many thanks to each and every person who has volunteered to take a shift on monument patrol.
We have also received confirmation from RPD this week that ads have been placed to promote the $1,500 reward that we set up for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the FIRST vandalizing of the Jefferson Davis Monument. As soon as we have links we will share them, and plan on posting information throughout the museum district, in hopes of getting someone with information to come forward.
Thank you all for your continued prayers, and steadfast support.
God bless the Monument Guards!
