How could the richmond va mayor claim that it is public safety to remove the statues? They weigh tons & how could any persons remove them?

The mayor claims they must be removed since people could be injured trying to remove them .Isn't this a stupid remark? These statues weigh tons and would be impossible to be removed by the hands of the public.

Update:

If these statues are in danger of being removed by the public. Why are they paying a million dollars to a crane co from up north to remove them?

    And yet several idiots have been badly injured attempting to topple statues on their own.

    All monuments are bad now. What used to be sights to see and local color is now oppression. No statue may stand now. Almost all white people in the past were racists. So by the new logic, no statue or memorial may be on public property.  Including veterans memorials, presidential monuments, explorers, anyone.  Even Harriet Beecher Stowe disliked Irish people.  But she was anti-slavery.  So does that mean she should stay or go. Charles Darwin wrote nasty things about the Irish. Should the Origin of Species be banned.

    It's an idiotic comment from him, for sure.
