Man Crashes Car Into 10 Commandments Statue
Controversy had been swirling around Arkansas' new Ten Commandments monument recently as opponents to religion protested it's creation and implementation onto State Government grounds.
Little did the Arkansas State Legislation know however that one man was determined to destroy the religious monument regardless if the State decided to allow it or not.
The 10 Commandments statue was obliterated into pieces early Wednesday by someone driving a vehicle into it less than 24 hours after the 6-foot granite statue was placed on state Capitol grounds.
Chris Powell, the Secretary of State's Office spokesman, said capitol police arrested the male suspect early Wednesday immediately after the crash.
Once again it appears the ‘tolerant left’ is indeed not so tolerant. Local Pulaski County jail records show that Michael Tate Reed of Van Buren, Arkansas, was booked into the jail shortly after 7:30 a.m. Wednesday on preliminary charges of defacing objects of public interest, criminal trespass and first-degree criminal mischief, with Capitol Police listed as the arrest agency.
An account belonging to Michael Reed seemingly streamed a Facebook Live video shot through the premeditated attack Wednesday and was posted onto the social media giant. For some reason these criminals can't stop filming themselves breaking the law.
This isn't the first time the radical anti-religious left has committed such terror however. Just three years ago another Ten Commandments monument at Oklahoma's Capitol was also under siege when a driver crashed his car into the statue, shattering it.
Michael Tate Reed of Van Buren, Arkansas, is the very same name of the driver who committed the crime three years ago. Police said after the first incident he was admitted for psychiatric treatment.
Formal charges were never filed in that case. Police have not answered if he is the same person who attacked the Arkansas monument Today, however.
The granite religious monument in Little Rock weighed 6,000 pounds It was finally erected Tuesday morning on the southwest lawn of the Capitol under the guise of secrecy.
In 2015 state law required the state to allow the display near the Capitol, and a state panel last month gave final approval to its design and location.
