North Carolinian de-jerseys statues
A resident has defended his actions in removing Carolina Hurricanes jerseys from local monuments.
"Do you think Andrew Jackson, sitting majestically on his horse while wearing a Hurricanes jersey was awe-inspiring and thought-provoking?" Davis Jones told the North Carolina Historical Commission. "No, it was a distraction and derailed the purpose of the monument to both educate and honour."
Jones, 49, was issued a citation for injuring the personal property of the state on May 24, when he removed the jerseys from the Union Square monuments. The statues were decorated for the Hurricanes' playoff run.
