If they want to keep this painting up, then there should be no problem putting the Confederate flag back up in S.C.
Freedom of speech is a two way street people
Just think how many artists are wishing they'd painted something so powerful. This isn't schoolyard name-calling (like a certain President-elect takes part in), it's a protest piece that has a lot of merit. Congrats to the artist and kudos to the house for keeping it up.
I think a painting that denigrate cops this way is unacceptable. Those people put their lives on the line to protect and serve. Plus how can you put that painting in the same week as 2 Orlando police officers died protecting innocents. This is disgraceful.
There are a lot of thing that probably should not be in the halls of the U.S Capital, but no one is putting them out. They just continue to pass through and voice their opinions and agendas. However, a painting that does the same is unwelcome. I fear the people more than the painting.
It's hard to imagine there's a district with enough hate filled radicals to vote for such a hate filled radical person to represent them in D.C....The Ferguson thing was soooo wrong. Glorify a thug and vilify a police officer just doing his job and trying to stay alive until his shift ended....
This was painted by a high school student entering a competition. It's inappropriate. It demonstrates what is wrong with kids today. No respect for adults or authority -- which is why they end up in the street, acting like punks, and then cry foul when the big bad police arrest them.... If I had painted something like that for a big competition when I was in high school, my parents would have throttled me.
Art isn't made to please the public. It's made to make a statement. This one is just clearer than most paintings.
Big problem:. Libs insult Conservatives... Conservatives insult Libs... Neither side showing any common sense... just hate. What a wonderful country we live in, that both sides can disagree in public. It is a privilege that much blood was shed for. Ask yourself this... Should all Americans enjoy the same freedoms that I enjoy? What have I really done to make my country a better place for ALL Americans? Could I do more to help unite us as Americans? Today we are all acting like little spoiled children who want their way. We keep it up, we just might lose our precious freedoms by our own demise. God Bless America! God Bless ALL Americans!
NBC News, your headline is misleading. It should read, A racist painting of Police Officers portrayed as pigs, and black Ferguson thugs is at the center of a bigoted battle surrounding the first amendment and Capitol rules.There I fixed it for you. You're welcome. 🙄
People forget that art doesn't have to make you feel good, nor do you have to particularly like it. Art is made to stir emotions and make you think. By that qualifier I believe this artist did a wonderful job.
good idea for taiwan
If you can't take one second to look up to check to see if it's safe to cross, let's just say natural selection will play its part nicely.
NOPE!! What about the driver who is not paying attention and runs a red light?

So what does it mean?
Bravo to all those who have worked so hard to rescue those still alive.
God bless everyone who worked at saving these precious lives. ND is praying.
Sometimes when the catastrophe seems hopeless, it isn't!
We can't afford free college for all Americans but we sure as hell can afford to spend $5B a year protecting this bozo!
Protecting a TOILET PRESIDENT---is a No Brainer !!!
Well, President Obama is done and safe for his 8 years. All thanks to God and secret services for preserving his life and his family. I don't really care what follows afterwards,
This is so pure. I hope Barron can be left out of the media coverage of his fathers presidency. He can't help who his father is.
The shear hideous evilness!
<<<Meanwhile, lets smash store fronts and riot to protest ...Uh...what again?
