    Cop father outraged at painting displayed at daughter's school that 'likens a white cop pointing a gun at a black boy to a Ku Klux Klan member'




    A police officer father is outraged after his daughter's school presented a painting of a white cop pointing a gun at an African American man, next a picture of a Ku Klux Klan member, saying it will inspire 'future cop haters'.
    Dave Hamblin, from Kentucky, said the painting - which was made by a student - contributes to the 'hatred filled propaganda' he says is being generated in the United States right now.
    One half of the painting shows a Ku Klux Klan member with a gun poised at an African American man in front of the confederate flag with the heading '1930', while the other half shows a white cop pointing a gun at a young African American boy, with the heading '2015' in front of the U.S. flag.

    Controversial: The painting made by a student has sparked a row between North Oldham High School in Kentucky and the cop father of one of their students. David Hamblin said the painting will inspire 'future cop haters'

    The painting was part of a school project inspired by the racial violence depicted in Harper Lee's book, To Kill a Mockingbird and, according to a teacher, was a good example how 'racial violence has evolved'.
    When Hamblin initially requested for the painting to be taken down, he was refused after North Oldham High School said it was an 'appropriate form of discourse and educationally noteworthy'.
    The officer then posted the picture on Facebook, along with a long complaint which included the words: 'We speak of tolerance, we speak of changing hostile environments, we speak of prejudice, and we speak of racial relations, yet, when it comes to hostility toward police, their families, and profiling them through bigotry we are expected to tolerate it.
    'I will not, nor will my child.'
    The post has since been shared nearly 6,000 times and has sparked a well-worn debate on social media.

    But the school initially refused to take the painting down, saying: 'We believe that our role as educators is to prepare our kids for the world beyond the classroom'

    Some responses supported officer Hamlin's complaint, saying that the painting was offensive

    A more neutral response called for both sides of the argument to have a conversation about what is an extremely divisive topic
    One user said: 'I think the school board should fire the teacher and principal of the school. Its a terrible portrayal of police officers and only add to the war that young people have waged on police and firemen.'
    While another said: 'Why do black people not have a right to speak out against police brutality? How is that an attack on the police?'

    Speaking to WLKY, Tracy Green, communications director for Oldham County Schools said: 'We believe that our role as educators is to prepare our kids for the world beyond the classroom, and sometimes things are going to be controversial.
    'They're pictures about social injustice, so I would assume they're a little offensive to a lot of people, because we're talking about a controversial issue.
    'We support what [officers] do every day and we're so thankful for everything they do to keep our students safe, but we also hope that they understand the dialogue that we're trying to have in the classroom to prepare these kids for the world outside of school.'
    Racial tensions: White officer Nathan Blanford shot dead 35-year-old African American Deng Menyoun in June last year after he allegedly swung a flag pole at him
    Hospital: The man was transferred to University of Louisville Hospital, where he died from his injuries
    But Hamblin remained concerned about the painting's impact on officer safety.
    He said: '[My daughter] fears for my safety every day, and believes me to be a man of honesty and courage.
    'She is proud to say I am her father and tells others what I do for a living.'
    'What this propaganda creates, are future cop haters, which endanger me, and 800,000 other courageous protectors.'
    The Daily Mail has learned that the picture has now been taken down but attempts to get a comment about the school's decision behind its removal, have so far been unsuccessful.
    In June last year, the debate over officers' use of deadly force and the simmering racial tension between the police and the communities they serve was reignited, after a Kentucky officer shot dead 35-year-old African American Deng Menyoun after he allegedly swung a flag pole at him.

    Can they put up a picture of a black guy robbing a white guy in the 1930's next to a picture of a black guy robbing a white guy in 2016? Maybe expand a little and do some future predictions. The year 3000 can show a black guy robbing a white guy on Mars.

    I would think by the year 3000 it will be a black guy robbing a terminator or insect overlord

    This anti police rhetoric going on right now is sickening. I'm not the most squeaky clean guy but I support the police and was always taught to show respect for law enforcement. I'm surprised anyone would want to become a cop nowadays.

    In 2016 Police Officers are portrayed as racist killers and violent urban felons are gentle giants.

    It appears to me as though the 2015 young person is bribing the officer. This is a crime.

    When we're children we're also told that Christopher Columbus was a hero and that the Easter Bunny exists. We're not very well equipped in this country with how to give children the truth. What is going on right now within the ranks of law enforcement is fucking disgusting. And no, it's not all of them and if I had kids I would absolutely tell them that they need to be respectful because you should just be respectful to adults. HOWEVER...always have your fucking radar on. Be careful. Not every adult is a nice person and not every cop is a good cop. We have some very heavy stories in the news right now where cops are just downright ass hole individuals and is it that they just suck and are the exception to the rule OR do we have a huge problem and these are just the ones that got caught?

    I wish we could get away with telling kids the truth and bring them up to be thinkers rather than sheep. I see what happens to those same sheep in the world as they turn into adults. It's most of society. They bug me out. I want to break the chain.

    Prepare them for beyond the classroom. Yeah right. Students will be sheltered from the real world for at least another 4 years if they go to college.
