Cop Outraged And Complains After Seeing This Painting At His Daughter’s School

A police officer father in the United States has taken to social media to complain about a piece of artwork displayed at his daughter’s school.


Kentucky cop Dave Hamblin is outraged by the painting which depicts two black people with a gun pointed at their head.


On one half of the painting, under the title “1930″, a Ku Klux 🤬 member is pointing the gun.


On the other half, titled “2015″, a white police officer is shown pointing the gun at what looks like a African American child.


The painting was from a school project inspired by racial violence depicted in Harper Lee’s book, To 🤬 A Mockingbird.


Police officer Dave Hamblin, who goes by the name Dave Kingmen on Facebook, says the picture is upsetting and creates “future cop haters”.


“We speak of tolerance, we speak of changing hostile environments, we speak of prejudice, and we speak of racial relations, yet, when it comes to hostility toward police, their families, and profiling them through bigotry we are expected to tolerate it,” “Kingmen” wrote.. “I will not, nor will my child.”


The cop has asked for the picture to be removed but the school has seemingly turned down his request.


“When discussing social injustice, people will likely be offended by some topic,” said Tracy Green, a school spokesperson.


“The drawing is a student’s artistic representation based on the lens through which the student viewed that issue and the student has a First Amendment right to share that opinion.”

    Welp, they took it down
    Good afternoon, I just got off the phone with the principal of North Oldham High School, and we had a very productive conversation. I believe him to be a good man, and I never thought otherwise. He communicated his frustration with not opening dialog sooner and wished he had considered the gravity of the request. For this reason and many others not worth getting into, the art has been removed. I would be remiss if I did not also add that I also offered an apology to him. I apologized for the roar that came from certain unsavory individuals in the social sphere. I wanted to be heard and had no idea it would expand the way it did. I want those who supported the mission to know that I still believe the Oldham county school district to be among the best in the country. I also want you to know that my daughter will stay in the honors class and with the same teacher. We are human, we make mistakes, and when we do, we do our best to make them right. NOHS principal has done this, and now I am doing the same. I will ask that we allow the school to get back to what we know it to be; a wonderful school with great teachers, and a caring principal. As for certain individuals in the administration who failed to do their job, and the PIO who insisted on increasing the tension, the voters can decide. Thank you again for your support. DH
