Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) called for rioters who attempted to pull down the Andrew Jackson statue near the White House on Monday evening to be locked up.
Commenting on Twitter, Cotton noted that the statue is federal property and that destroying it “carries a 10-year sentence under the Veterans Memorial Preservation and Recognition Act.”
And, by the way, criminal masterminds, you’re destroying a statue on federal property that commemorates the military service of Andrew Jackson, a crime that carries a 10-year sentence under the Veterans Memorial Preservation and Recognition Act. And you’re on tape.
Lock ‘em up!
