Cops in Lansing, Illinois, removed a Halloween decoration from a woman's yard after some neighbors complained it looked like a lynched black man. The black mannequin, which had been hanged from a tree, originally had hockey mask similar to the one worn by Jason in the Friday the 13th movies. But a vandal had removed the mask. Cops say the owner had no malicious intent, but they still removed the decoration.
