Warning This Video Will Offend YOU!
MADISON, WI — Vile. Racist. A “direct threat.” One Wisconsin lawmaker used these words to describe a video made by a group of students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The video in question depicts the beheading of a police officer.
In the video, students dressed as officers wearing pig masks, including one leading a black student to a noose made of the U.S. flag. Later, a machete-wielding black student chases the officers before the video cuts to a frame of the student holding a bloody, decapitated pig mask.
The video was produced and directed by Eneale Pickett, a junior at the university, as a commercial to promote a clothing line he created with an anti-police message. He did not immediately respond to an email and a message through his Twitter account Thursday.
