    Man pepper sprays ‘Soldiers Reunion Parade' participants in Newton



    During the parade, Channel 9 saw that one man with a gun was taken into custody. Eyewitness News reporter Dave Faherty witnessed the incident and said the man went over to some Civil War re-enactors and pepper sprayed them.

    The Civil War re-enactors and members of the Sons of the Confederacy were protecting a Confederate monument at the old courthouse.

    Two parade participants notified police that a man with pepper spray was following the Confederate veteran re-enactors.

    MISSION HILLS (CBSLA.com) — Several people stopped by a statue of Father Junipero Serra in a park across from Mission San Fernando on Thursday after a photo made the rounds on social media appearing to show the statue had been vandalized.

    A picture circulating Facebook showed the statue spray-painted red and the word “murder” written on Serra in white.

    “I came because some friends posted a photo of the defaced statue and I wanted to see if it was in fact correct,” Paul Minette said.

    The photo comes at a time when many are calling for the removal of controversial statues. Some argue Serra is not the saint the Catholic Church paints him out to be. Instead, they claim he used California Indians and destroyed part of their culture.

    “I think the statue should come down from this park, and then put some appreciation to the Native people that live here,” Cristian Ramirez said.

    “It’s a beautiful park for people to enjoy and for others to come and take that away from us is wrong,” Minette said.

    Some people say there’s no room in the park for graffiti.

    Being a Civil war re-enactor used to be a pretty safe and harmless hobby for a lot of people.
    I guess it won't be so safe any more..
