DAYTON, Ohio – A display of posters with silhouettes of bodies surrounded by crime scene tape on which a Ohio high school sports victories over his rivals has been removed from the school.
Belmont High School in Dayton on Tuesday removed from the display, which was housed in a building hallway during the weekend. The displayed names of rival teams and phrases such as “Let the bodies hit the floor” and “Cap that Cougars.”
Some parents had said they thought the display was inappropriate and too suggestive of armed violence.
Dayton schools Superintendent Elizabeth Lolli said she had the display removed as soon as they heard that the Tuesday. She calls the posters inappropriate, but says that she does not believe anyone was in favour of violence.
