Ten Commandments monument didn't last a day

The new Ten Commandments monument at the Arkansas Capitol was destroyed by a auto overnight less than 24 hours after installation on the Capitol grounds.

The suspect, 32-year-old Michael Reed of Van Buren, posted a video on Facebook that apparently records his encounter with the monument from the driver's seat of his vehicle. Reed recorded himself destroying the monument under the cover of darkness, driving his vehicle into the decalogue and yelling "freedom!".

A suspect is reported to have driven his vehicle into the structure early on Wednesday while filming on his mobile phone and posting footage on Facebook.

Rapert told CNN Tuesday that he was "grateful to see the law fulfilled". The driver in the video says, "Oh my goodness." and then "Freedom" before smashing into the tablet.

Although many opposed the unconstitutional monument in Arkansas, most reject Reed's vigilante vandalism as a legitimate solution to the problem. "The main point of the dream was that Satan would be attacking me", he wrote. He had also planned for the event by creating a GoFundMe page, with which he hoped to raise enough money to replace his vehicle.

According to Tulsa World, this is not the first time that Michael Tate Reed had made a decision to destroy a Ten Commandments monument. In a letter to the Tulsa World, Reed claimed he had a psychotic break due to a Dracula film and believing that Michael Jackson's spirit was living inside meat.

The Ten Commandments Monument Display Act requires the Secretary of State to permit and arrange for the monument.

"Now that we've seen the monument go up, it is still appalling", said Lee Wood Thomas with the Arkansas Society of Free Thinkers.

Courts have ordered the removal of similar religious monuments erected in Oklahoma and Alabama.

"So, if it's good enough for the United States capitol, it's good enough for the state of Arkansas", Rapert stated.

Michael Tate Reed rammed his Dodge Dart into a Ten Commandments monument in Arkansas. His bill regarding the matter was approved in the House and Senate, and was subsequently signed by Gov. Asa Hutchinson. The Constitution itself isn't mighty enough to stop the Arkansas legislature from destructive acts.

In response to a question about a potential lawsuit by the ACLU, Rapert questioned the "culpability" and rhetoric of groups like the ACLU, Freethinkers societies, and the Satanic Temple.
