NJ High School Art Exhibit Attacks Police
Gee, I wonder what the teachers behind this exhibit are teaching their students?
WESTFIELD, NJ — An art exhibit created by several Westfield students and displayed at a recent district-wide art show is drawing criticism from police officers. The display, titled “Law Enforcement — Police Brutality,” includes images of a man stabbed in the back by a badge and several of guns aimed at unarmed figures.
Artists’ statements are included below each piece.
“I am generally opposed to all forms of government control, and with the common occurrence of slaughtering innocents on the high-rise this was my prime reason to protest,” wrote one student.
Below the image of a bloody figure stabbed by a police badge, a student wrote, “The message that I am trying to convey is how some police officers have spilled the blood of many innocent people.” More
