NJ High School Art Exhibit Shows Cops Killing People

Students at a New Jersey high school are drawing criticism for an art exhibit that features drawings of cops beating and killing suspects under the title “Law Enforcement – Police Brutality.”

Students at the Westfield, New Jersey School District added captions to the drawings some of which attacked police as killers of innocents.

“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.”

Many officers have been criticizing the students.

“Disgusting that this school allows projects depicting false police brutality. Should be ashamed of yourself,” wrote one user whose profile photo is a police badge.

Another Facebook user wrote, “Disgusted with your prejudicial so-called display of art that promotes violence by labeling police as brutalists. Funny that all school teachers aren’t called sex offenders because of an occasional inappropriate relationship with students. Treat law enforcement the same way!”

Thus far, the school has refused to respond to the situation.
