A DeKalb County Superior Court Judge has ruled the Confederate obelisk monument on the Decatur square is a public nuisance. This after an emergency hearing over Zoom on Friday.
Decatur city attorney Bryan Downs argued in his complaint filed against DeKalb County, that owns the monument, that “in recent days the monument has been an increasingly frequent target of graffiti and vandalism; and it is inspiring outrage, leading to demonstrations and protests, which potentially expose the public and police officers to COVID-19 and which could result in violence, injury or death to individuals, including those who may attempt to forcibly remove the monument.”
