Idaho Resident Receives Mixed Reviews Over His Politically Influenced Halloween Display

Richard Piersol, from Idaho, says he enjoys Halloween decorating while conveying his political beliefs.

This year, he put President Obama's head on a stick. Of the display, he said, "I've got the Grim Reaper on the ATV, and Obama's head is on the spear and he has been decapitated. It's like free speech. I am pretty much saying I don't like his politics, and I don't like him. That's it."

According to the Canyon County Sheriff’s department, Piersol is not breaking any laws with the display. Piersol also stated Piersol is not breaking any laws with the display."

Piersol discussed race by saying it has nothing to do with race. In addition, he shared "I've got a couple of African American friends of mine that have given me more ideas to put out there to make it look gorier. And it's like 'no, I don't want to do that. That might offend somebody."

Local resident, Wally Lester, said “My son asked me if it was a little bit prejudice towards certain individuals, say maybe the president because it has a head over there with a machete, I said no I don’t think it’s directed towards anybody, think it just happens to be that situation the way they put it together.” Piersol added, “If I have way too many people that don’t like it, I will take it down."
