Looks like somebody's stolen Robert Gould Shaw's sword again from the memorial across from the State House.
Given what this monument represents, this REALLY pisses me off.
...there's a decent chance that these idiots have no clue what the monument represents.
Is Attorney General Sessions in town by chance?
I believe it gets stolen several times a year. It has been started living in Boston in 1999 and I am thinking it was plastic for many years before then.
Yeah, I thought we learned this last time it happened. Though the break in the photo looks substantial.
It has been a long time, but a trick was to walk up this substantial statue and pull on the sword to show how if flexed. And I recall that if flexed all the way back to guard.
...that I read a while back (maybe the last time it happened?) that it was fiberglass and they generally just keep a bunch of them in stock.
Doesn't that get stolen, as well?
