A woman protesting ICE was arrested on July 4th while scaling the Statue of Liberty. Has everyone on the left gone completely insane? Not only did this woman put herself in danger, she endangered the lives of the officers who had to get her down.
Police apprehend Statue of Liberty climber after long standoff
After more than two hours, police apprehended a woman who climbed the Statue of Liberty.
U.S. Parks Police evacuated Liberty Island after the woman, identified as Therese Patricia Okoumou, 44 of Staten Island, climbed to the base of the statue.
Reports of a person scaling the statue started came in around 3 p.m. Wednesday, shortly after a protest group calling itself Rise and Resist dropped a banner that read “Abolish ICE” from the base of the statue.
Officers responded to the scene with a helicopter and eventually moved their way up the statue near where Okoumou was located. At first, she put up a struggle with police officers.
Okoumou moved around occasionally and waved a t-shirt at times. At other times she was seen lying on her stomach and kicking her feet up behind her. She was holding a t-shirt that says ‘Rise and Resist’ and ‘Trump Care Makes Us Sick.’
Here’s a video:
Not smart. What did she think she was accomplishing by doing this?
