An anti-police high school art display near the nation’s capital has been removed amid controversy.
Honors students at Oxon Hill High School, a majority-black school in Prince George’s County, Md., outside Washington D.C., created the display that portrays black males as a “new endangered species.”
The display featured a white police officer holding an obituary section of a newspaper. Next to him a was a young black man with his hands up in a bullet-riddled, blood-covered, American flag T-shirt.
According to Fox 5, the art had been displayed for weeks before being removed Monday after a picture of it went viral after being tweeted.
In a statement, the school confirmed the display had been removed.
“While we encourage this type of evaluation, expression and analysis in our school district, we also strive to foster a civil and respectful culture,” the statement read.
And nothing says “civil and respectful” like bloody T-shirts and murderous cops.
The disgusting display was roundly panned in the Twitterverse.

@DailyCaller Talk about double standards, and, of course, it’s not based on the truth.

@DailyCaller Teaching kids to disrespect law and authority? What’s the worst that could happen? They’ll have their 3rd world country soon.
