Dallas Removes Statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from Park

I've said it before, removing statues is a very bad idea.
  Today it's a statue, tomorrow it's your church!  That's the road we're stupidly putting ourselves on.  And nobody talks about the destruction of beautiful artwork.  
Breitbart reports Dallas officials brought in crews late Thursday afternoon to remove  the historical statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from a public park.
Around 4 p.m. (CDT), police escorted a heavy-duty Terex crane into Robert E. Lee Park in uptown Dallas. Teams of workers toiled for at least three hours to cut underneath the statue’s base. Using a power saw and a crowbar, they dislodged the 14-foot tall, six-ton equestrian bronze statue depicting Lee and an unknown Confederate soldier from its stone pedestal. As they did, crowds of locals grew, many snapping photos with their cell phones. Police surrounded the area.
