Minuteman Statue Vandalized Again

It was bad enough last month, when someone stuck flowers in the Minuteman’s musket, and hung a peace sign around his neck.

That photo on “06880” — without a word of text — spurred a record 293 comments. Some posters shrieked for the arrest of whoever defaced our beloved statue in such a horrific way.

I am sure the Taliban those commenters will be equally appalled at today’s horrible sight. I join all concerned Westporters in calling for the arrest, conviction and execution of anyone responsible for this most recent mockery of freedom.

On the other hand, it may simply be a tribute to Ed Koch.

  6. Dan laments a lack of civility and then he calls those who diagree with him the Taliban. I think this blog attracts the type of people Dan runs with.

  9. I’m for anything that pays tribute to Ed Koch, one of the all-time greats (cream cheese preferred).

  10. That is disgusting and disrespectful!!!!!!!!

    If Estelle had put a bagel on her BB gun from WalMart she wouldn’t have been arrested.

  12. It’s not vandalism. It’d take one second to pluck that bagel away.

    • Don’t worry, the birds got the bagel before the “digital film” was dry. Now, there is an outcry for what the vandal birds did to the statue, after they ate said bagel!

  13. I have often wondered how the holes are created in bagels.
