    Bizarre.

    Whether sympathetic to their actions or not, surely you can't go around destroying things with no consequence.

    Nor was I.

    Rather agree with them, but whatever your beliefs, you can't make a unilateral decision on what is righr or wong and just destroy what you don't like.

    Good for them. Unusual to wish Bristolians well.

    Re: Wasn’t expecting that verdict.

    One of the protesters said after the verdict that removing the statue had the affect of rewriting history. That's what the Russians did after Stalin killed at least 3m people. Bizarre. History is history that should be told truthfully however bad that may be.

    Would have made more sense to me to find them guilty and then for the judge to impose a nominal fine.

    Somewhere in a darkened room Ugly Patel will be distraught, she was hoping to impose ten year jail sentences. Well done that jury.

    The statue didn’t tell history though.

    Think the Bristol Mayor should explain why he and the council did not act and remove it knowing the statue had been an issue for so many and after receiving many complaints over many years ??

    Let's prey this case result doesn't lead to more acts of civil action.

    Funny that one of the four doesn't live in Bristol but in Hampshire.

    Civil action is all that’s left in this country. You’ll be thankful for people like these one day.

    There were consequences though. They were tried and found not guilty.

    Good for them.

    The statue has been a disgrace and shame on Bristol for years

    People asked nicely for it to be removed or moved and they were ignored.

    Absolutely

    As much as having statues of killers up is a part of history, so is the removal of such statues.

    Ps... You don't destroy history by removing statues... You destroy history by not teaching it truthfully in schools or telling the truth about these killers in museums etc.... Sadly British history that is taught does not portray a truthful history.
