3 charged with pushing over Confederate statue at University of North Carolina

Three people were charged this week in connection with the toppling of the “Silent Sam” Confederate monument at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, an act of protest that supporters say demolished a symbol of white supremacy.


The individuals, who were not named but who were said to have no affiliation with the university, face misdemeanor charges of rioting and defacing a public monument, Randy Young, a spokesman for the university’s police force, said in a statement on Friday. Mr. Young said none of the three had been arrested yet.
