Is hanging the
President of the United States in Effigy — Free Speech — Yes? or No?
Why Is a Hangin’ Truck Driving Around NYC With President Obama On a Noose?
After two decades of living and working in Manhattan, this average New Yorker believed he had seen everything. Today proved that to be a false assumption.
Walking out of the Blaze headquarters on 6th Avenue in Midtown, I encountered this very strange vehicle driving up the street.
The flatbed trailer being pulled by the pickup truck appears to have eight bodies hanging in effigy. Of course my eye was drawn to the body in the center of the display and the sign with a Presidential Seal (of sorts) and the name President Obama.
Carrying only a smartphone camera, I clicked as many photos as I could before the truck drove out of sight. This one offered clues that would eventually explain more about the purpose of this bizarre display.
On the back of the “Hanging Truck” one of the signs reads:

Wait a minute. Someone is driving around Manhattan with the President hanging in effigy on a truck? Why? The YouTube search proved fruitful (if not more bizarre than the scene above).
Apparently the truck belongs to someone named VR Phipps from North Carolina. Mr Phipps believes that some of his family members were murdered by local law enforcement and a massive cover-up has successfully prevented him from getting justice. So, Phipps did something very bizarre… he built a gallows in his backyard and also constructed a hanging truck. In the early version (pictured below) VR only had six people dangling. The current version seen today has a judge, a highway patrolman, former Attorney General, the current Governor of North Carolina, a chief counsel, and a county sheriff.
