Fremont Statue Turned Into Political Statement

A group of statues at a popular intersection in Fremont was decorated with black hoods by an anonymous artist. The correlation to the Iraqi prisoner abuse scandal at Abu Ghraib is obvious, and some great uh, “reporting”, led to these choice quotes:

“It’s freedom of expression,” said Colin Klein. “It definitely makes me think about it a little bit more, after seeing it like that.”

“I think we — collectively — need to think about it,” said Bunn.

But what kind of reporting would this be if we didn’t have the opposition voicing their opinion:

“Sometimes force is necessary between people,” said veteran John Wolfe. He thinks the focus should be on American prisoners — namely Nick Berg who was beheaded earlier this month.

“I think about Nick Berg. Nobody put a hood over his head,” he said.


Oh come on Mr. Wolfe, won’t you think about the poor Iraqi canines that are being abused?
