According to a news report, an effigy of U.S. Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic presidential nominee and an African American, was found hanging from a tree on the University of Kentucky campus this morning, according to university officials.
UK President Lee Todd said he was alerted about the incident by a professor who was riding his bicycle to campus around 7:30 a.m.
The effigy was found on Rose Street, near the universityâ€™s Mining and Minerals building.
Officers with both the University Police Department and the Lexington Police Department are investigating the incident, and the Secret Service has been notified, Todd said.
I think both the incidents of Sarah Palin’s effigy in California and Obama’s effigy in UK are deplorable acts and should not have taken place.
The race is taking a nasty turn and I am sure some are hoping that elections get over soon. All this definitely ends up leaving a distaste in the mouth for some time.
Do you go this school or know somebody who goes to this school? What do you think about it. I think it would be fair to assume that this school is going to get an image of an errant in the mainstream media thought its not prudent to hold a few students responsible for this despicable act and paint every student of that school with the same paint brush.
