Wilmington PD is investigating vandalism of confederate statutes downtown

Wilmington Police Department reported that confederate monuments in downtown Wilmington were vandalized around 3:00am on Thursday, July 4, 2019. WPD is looking for what appears to be a woman who is responsible for vandalizing the statues.

(WILMINGTON, NC)- The George Davis statue located around the corner of Market & Third Streets, Third and Dock Streets has been vandalized again. This act is coincidentally following protests in downtown Wilmington in late June demanding removal of these statues.

The statue that is dedicated to the fourth attorney general of the confederate states, George Davis stands on Third and Market Streets.

The statue was erected in the City of Wilmington, NC in 1911.

Wilmington Police Department reported that confederate monuments in downtown Wilmington were vandalized around 3:00am on Thursday, July 4, 2019.

Wilmington Detectives are trying to find out the identity of what appears to be a female who was involved in vandalizing the confederate statues in downtown. WPD reported previously that vandalism has happened in the same place in 2017.

The Gabriel James Boney Confederate Memorial was also vandalized in the 2017 incident, though it is not clear whether it was specifically also involved in this incident.

The investigation revealed that the suspect threw orange paint on the monument and fled from the scene.

Anderson SC Presbyterian Church vandalized

The police department and city of Anderson took to Facebook Sunday afternoon with a photo showing the damage from the act of vandalism.

The photo shows three broken windows that are over 125 years old, Anderson Police said. The siding of the church was spraypainted in black with the partially misspelled, incorrect word choice in the phrases, “Submit to God thru Islam,” [sic] and “Muhammed is his prophet” [sic]

The Anderson City Police Department is investigating vandalism that happened to a local church located on Midway Rd.

The police department and city of Anderson took to Facebook Sunday afternoon with a photo showing the damage from the act of vandalism.

The photo shows three broken windows that are over 125 years old, Anderson Police said. The siding of the church was spraypainted in black with the partially misspelled, incorrect word choice in the phrases, “Submit to God thru Islam,” [sic] and “Muhammed is his prophet” [sic]

The Onslow Beat took this a step further to investigate the Islamic population in Anderson, SC. Considering that if this was a crime indeed involving suspects of Islamic faith that they would have no problem correctly spelling “Muhammad” vs Muhammed”  nor “through” vs “thru”. What is the population of Islamic citizens in or around Anderson, SC? 0%. (Bestplaces.net) 

– 44.9% are Baptist
– 0.3% are Episcopalian
– 1.6% are Catholic
– 0.3% are Lutheran
– 5.4% are Methodist
– 6.1% are Pentecostal
– 2.3% are Presbyterian
– 0.5% are Church of Jesus Christ
– 4.8% are another Christian faith
– 0.0% affiliate with Judaism
– 0.0% are an eastern faith
– 0.0% of affiliate with Islam 

However, looking further in a general Google search, there is one Muslim Mosque (worship center) in Anderson where The Onslow Beat discovered that a self-proclaimed Satanist on YouTube made a video one night in 2017 from outside of the worship center in hopes of proving he’s not a liberal. (Watch below)

This isn’t suggestive that the man shown above is the suspect but it is to show some unusual behavior that is religious center related in or around Anderson, SC.

Anderson SC is the home of multiple southern baptist associations to include the Saluda Baptist Association.

The mission statement at  Midway Presbyterian is,

Our purpose is to call people into a living and growing relationship with God in Jesus Christ with the help of the Holy Spirit, and to promote the mission of Christ in compassionate ministries.

    We intend to be a welcoming and caring church – a church family that nurtures a sense of community and belonging.  We want young and old to join us in the Christian pilgrimage as sojourners in the great adventure of faith. 

 The Onslow Beat reached out to Midway Presbyterian and was unable to make contact before the deadline and will update upon response.

It is not the belief of The Onslow Beat that this act of vandalism was done by anyone of Muslim/Islamic Faith given the obvious shown in the photograph.

Anyone with information on who may be responsible for the vandalism is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
