Berger Responds to Destruction of Silent Sam Statue



Raleigh, N.C. – North Carolina Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) released a statement responding to the destruction of the Silent Sam statue at the UNC Chapel Hill Campus Monday night:


“Many of the wounds of racial injustice that still exist in our state and country were created by violent mobs and I can say with certainty that violent mobs won’t heal those wounds. Only a civil society that adheres to the rule of law can heal these wounds and politicians – from the Governor down to the local District Attorney – must start that process by ending the deceitful mischaracterization of violent riots as ‘rallies’ and reestablishing the rule of law in each of our state’s cities and counties.”
