Does that mean the #People of Norfolk or the #Politicians of #Norfolk?
I'll bet it's the politicians and not the people who want the statutes removed. It certainly appears that way with respect to #Charlottesville -- according to the same article where the City Council wanted the statue removed, but citizens sued the the city (politicians, I hope).
According to the article, the City Council of Charlottsville blames the statue of General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson for the deaths and injuries at the Charlottesville protest with the #UnitedTheRight rally.
It would be nice if the #VirginiaStateSupremeCourt had several still-living brain cells among them. But I seriously doubt it after I read parts of the #VirginiaStateSupremeCourtRules that prohibit the Constitution from being used in front of Jurors to prove that a law violates the US and/or the VA #Constitutions -- as the rule states; "discussing the law might confuse the jurors". That right; it might confuse the jurors to the point of realizing that there are a lot of laws that violate the constitutions, the jurors might actually call a #SuperGrandJury to investigate the #Treasonous and #Tyrannical acts by the various #LegislativeBranches with Virginia.
