The city of Birmingham broke state law when it covered a Confederate monument

The Alabama Supreme Court ruled that covering the ’Confederate Soldiers and Sailors Monument’ violated the ’Alabama Memorial Preservation Act’. The justices, in a unanimous decision, sent the case back to the circuit court ordering the city fined for breaking the law. In August 2017, under growing pressure, then Birmingham Mayor William Bell ordered the monument covered with plywood.

I agree they should not have placed a plywood screen around the statue.
