On Saturday supporters and opponents clashed in Forest Park as they gathered to voice their arguments over the 100 year old monument. This prompted St. Louis Police to intervene in an effort to keep the crowds under control.  One person was taken into custody after an alleged assault during the demonstrations.

The  32-foot-high monument has been targeted by vandals several times in the past year, including two in the past month.
