Vandals ripped this statue from its base?

Christopher Columbus, Ulysses S. Grant and Abraham Lincoln. Who’s next?

A statue of abolitionist Frederick Douglass was ripped from its base in Rochester, News York on the anniversary of one of his most famous speeches, delivered in that city in 1852. Police said the statue of Douglass was taken on Sunday from Maplewood Park, a site along the Underground Railroad where Douglass and Harriet Tubman helped shuttle slaves to freedom. The statue was found about 50 feet from its pedestal, police said, with minimal damage.
