Secret Service Eyes Obama Display

Wayne McKay is letting his opinion of the president be known in his front yard - and raising some eyebrows and gaining the attention of the U.S. Secret Service as a result. The Coeur d'Alene man has a skeleton hanging with a noose with a sign stating, "I committed treason" hanging from his neck in his front yard on Pennsylvania Avenue. Below the skeleton is a headstone with "RIP Obama" on it. It's not your average Halloween display. McKay cites the attack on the U.S. Consulate compound in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11 as a reason behind the display. U.S. ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other U.S. nationals were killed during the attack. "It's not racist; it's freedom of speech," McKay said of his display/Brian Walker, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
