BOONE COUNTY, IN (WAVE) - A Halloween display in Indiana is the talk of the neighborhood.

An Iraq war veteran has a display of a masked President Barack Obama hanging from a noose in his front yard.

The Obama mask is part of death theme which includes an execution chair, casket and a living dead character.

The homeowner insists despite history's civil rights stigma about hangings, his display is not racist.

The man said, "I am a disabled vet, I lost my eye in Iraq fighting for these freedoms, I should be able to express them."

Neighbors said they support freedom of speech, but this simply goes overboard.
