Arkansas Man Takes Out 10 Commandments Statue With His Car
Yesterday, a statue honoring the 10 Commandments was installed on the capitol grounds in Arkansas. These types of monuments have been at the center of controversy as opponents have complained about public funds paying for a religious statue on government property. However, this particular monument was paid for with privately raised funds - more than $26,000 in donations to be more precise.
Michael Tate Reed of Van Buren, Arkansas didn't think that separated church and state quite enough for his tastes. Early this morning, he decided to take matters into his own hands. As you can see in this Facebook Live video, Michael brought a car to a monument fight. He pulled his car up onto the grassy portion of the capitol grounds where the statue resided with his lights off. That's when the above video starts. You can see Mr. Reed flip his lights on, hear him yell "Freedom" and punch it. In a flash, his vehicle accelerates and finds it's target. That's right, less than 24 hours after it was erected, he took out the original "terms and conditions" with his car.
Needless to say, Michael is now staying in the crossbar motel the Pulaski County jail. Check out more here.
