catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack.
