City Council's Confederate Monuments Hearing Was Contentious, As Predicted

NOLA.com reports that yesterday's more-than-three-hours-long public hearing on what to do about New Orleans' confederate monuments included "shouting, jeers and even a few threats."

We called it. Read on at NOLA.com for a breakdown of the main arguments proposed, and also some great pictures of exasperated council members. The City Council vote on the issue will happen 10 a.m. Dec. 17.

(By the way, according to the poll we took yesterday, most of you think that the Confederate monuments should stay. If you disagree, duke it out in the comments.)
