This is a police officer in Weirton, West Virginia who thought it was okay to display a lynching in his front yard on Halloween.

Even after it made a few neighbors uncomfortable, he refused to remove it. He works as a school resource officer. #EndRacism #SurvivingAmericasPolice
Some people still don't grasp the depth of racist white American savagery. The lynching of blacks for pleasure, gets swept under the rug like it wasn't some of the most violent shit in American history. This display is disgusting, and shouldn't be promoted by police officers.
Let's be real, all shit aside. Only racist white men pose this proud at a lynching.

Sometimes thousands would turn up to watch the murders. The black victim was routinely tortured, kept alive until the body could stand no more. Then they celebrated in postcards.
The neighbors asked nicely. Even typed & delivered a letter.

It was ignored by Sam Krzys and his wife.
He even responded with a comment posting the photo, acknowledging he was hurting feelings.

This isn't just racist, it's intentional.
The bloody letter you see on the lynched figure, appears to be the same letter sent by the neighbors. This guy knows exactly what he's doing. #SurvivingAmericasPolice
This, "fuck you, I'll kill who I want" police mentality is disrespectful enough. Law enforcement shouldn't find pleasure in also opening wounds, created by the sick history of lynching. Also makes me wonder how many white police officers participated in lynchings decades ago.
.@WTRF7News is spinning this into a pity party for a grown man/police officer -- who took pride in taunting his neighbors, with a lynching display. #EndRacism #SurvivingAmericasPolice wtrf.com/news/west-virg…
.@Newspro1340 is experiencing hate & disrespect from the evil Weirton clan. I'm sorry you're receiving horrible messages. Thank you for using your voice to speak against racism.
.@WTRF7News Did I miss the part in your story where he apologized to his community for poor judgment, offending his neighbors, and being an arrogant asshole? #EndRacism #SurvivingAmericasPolice
Weirton PD also fired a cop for not shooting a black man in 2016.

No police officer should ever lose their job – or have their name dragged through the mud – for choosing to talk to, rather than shoot a fellow citizen. #EndRacism #SurvivingAmericasPolice
