Glad to see it being repaired. Statue and monument vandalism has always been a problem and whatever the motivation I think it has no place in a democracy. Each context has its own process for enacting change in public decoration. Whether it's raising, removing, or repairing. If that locality and legitimate process has established a monument should exist where it is then I am against it's vandalism and for it's maintaining just like I'm for it being relocated if that same context comes to a different conclusion, whatever my view on the matter.
