Letter: Shame on you, Roy Cooper

Published 5:00 pm Monday, September 10, 2018

The response from Governor Cooper to the vandalism of the Silent Sam statue at UNC-Chapel Hill was not at all appropriate.

His response was almost like a congratulations on your win students, but he felt obligated to say something.

The full extent of the law should be applied to these students before they get so confident in law breaking that they decide on becoming home grown terrorist.

The men that the statue was honoring were called upon to do a honorable thing which was protect their homeland, North Carolina.

There should never be a question of right or wrong when a mob destroys property, public or private.

The answer is that wrong is always wrong.
