Obama-Masked Figure Found Hanging From Overpass In Missouri: Report

 

A figure fashioned to look like President Barack Obama was found hanging from an Interstate 70 overpass near Kansas City, Missouri, on Monday morning, KMBC-TV of Kansas City reports.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office told KMBC that the dummy, which was found at 5:30 a.m., was wearing an Obama mask and hanging over the westbound lanes. The sheriff's office has possession of the dummy and is investigating the incident.

A bomb squad had also been called in to sweep the dummy, after deputies saw what they thought could be an explosive device on the figure, The Kansas City Star reports.

No explosives were found, but all lanes were shut down as a precaution during the examination, a spokeswoman for the sheriff's office told the paper. The overpass was near Oak Grove, Missouri, about 25 miles east of Kansas City.

Some previous presidential effigies have led to Secret Service investigations, such as one found in Georgia in 2010.

Another incident along I-70 drew scorn in 2010 when a billboard in western Colorado showed caricatures of Obama as a terrorist, gangster, Mexican bandit and gay man.

There are those who cannot see past their own ugliness and wallow in their own minds.

Sick, twisted people.

Agreed.  Horrible actions.  But this isn't the first President to be hung in effigy.

You are correct.

It doesn't take away from the sickness of the twisted mind who pulled this one off.

And giving these idiots media attention doesn't help either.
