How To Irritate Moses

A guy uses, presumably, his own vehicle and destroys it on federal grounds. He goes to jail to make a point. Now, you tell me, who won and who lost from this operation.

I would say his best excuse for the court would be the 'I was drunk and didn't know what I was doing' defense.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Officials say Arkansas’ new Ten Commandments monument was destroyed by Michael Tate Reed, 32, of Van Buren Arkansas driving a vehicle into it less than 24 hours after the monument was placed on state Capitol grounds. Reed yelled "Freedom"(whatever that means) after he committed the deed.
Secretary of State’s Office spokesman Chris Powell said Capitol Police arrested the male suspect early Wednesday. The suspect’s name and motive haven’t been released.
The stone monument fell to the ground and broke into multiple pieces.
The privately funded monument was 6 feet tall and weighed 6,000 pounds. It was installed Tuesday morning on the southwest lawn of the Capitol with little fanfare and no advance notice.
