Florida sheriff decries hanging mannequin in police uniform

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Motorists saw a startling scene Saturday morning as they drove along a Florida interstate: a mannequin dressed in a police uniform dangling from a rope at an overpass.

Emergency crews in Jacksonville, Florida, were dispatched shortly after 6:20 a.m. to investigate a possible suicide.

But when they got there, they discovered a mannequin hanging from an Interstate 95 overpass wearing a pig mask and dressed in what appeared to be a New York City police uniform.

In a statement on Twitter, Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams called the incident “extremely disturbing.”

He called it an attempt to stoke “anti-police sentiment and drive a divide in our community.”

The mannequin was removed and authorities launched an investigation.

“This type of act will not be tolerated by our agency or our community, and we will work together to hold those responsible accountable,” Williams said.

The death of George Floyd in Minnesota has spawned protests across the country and put focus on police brutality against Blacks.

  3. The precise values for Levitra ODT (Staxyn) give not been reported, just this drug
    provides a higher systemic exposure compared with the
    film-coated conceptualisation (Levitra).

    For this reason, these two formulations are not combining weight milligram for milligram and thus
    are non standardized. In addition, disdain the percept that an ODT conceptualization would take up essence
    Thomas More quickly, both the film-coated tablets and the
    ODT preparation let like onsets of activeness. http://lm360.us/
