Columbus Statue Dragged Down!
Protesters tore down a statue of Christopher Columbus outside the Minnesota State Capitol. American Indian Movement (AIM) planned the rally to remove the statue, which state officials said just hours earlier that they were aware of but were hoping it could be peacefully resolved. While a couple of Minnesota State Patrol troopers were at the scene, law enforcement appeared to offer little resistance as protesters pulled the statue down.
