The City of Memphis skirted around state law and federal protections to remove a statue that many in Memphis found to be offensive. Many citizens in Memphis would have supported the legal removal of said statues. But, what happens when the removal violates law? Why didn't the citizens get the opportunity to say how much it was sold for? Is it ok to sell public property to a fellow politician whose non-profit was started for the sole purpose of getting around state a federal law? What about the leaders of this movement, who are they? Why are we giving city contracts to convicted felons? Yes, Memphis it is a tangled web we weave when we practice to deceive.
