Vito Barbieri has been a Republican Idaho State Representative since 2010, representing District 2 in the A seat, according to Wikipedia.

Barbieri seemed to think that by swallowing a tiny camera, doctors would be able to determine the state of a woman’s pregnancy.

He also wondered if a colonoscopy could be performed with a drug.

The City of Moscow Police Department has released the names of the victims.

Halloween Display Features President Obama’s Decapitated Head

article imageOn a rural road in Canyon County, Idaho, you can find a scary yard decked out for Halloween.

In the yard you can also see the President’s head on a stick as part of the Halloween decorations.

Richard Piersol said he enjoys decorating for Halloween and this year he wanted his political views known.

“I’ve got the Grim Reaper on the ATV, and Obama’s head is on the spear and he has been decapitated.

“It’s like free speech. I am pretty much saying I don’t like his politics, and I don’t like him. That’s it,” Piersol told CBS affiliate KBOI2.

The Canyon County Sheriff’s department said Piersol is not breaking any laws with the display, and some officers have shown him their support.

“I’ve had three police officers stop and take pictures and give me the thumbs up,” Piersol said.

CBS reports Piersol’s display was inspired by his opposition to President Obama.

In terms of racial prejudice, Piersol says his decorations have nothing to do with race.

“I’ve got a couple of African American friends of mine that have given me more ideas to put out there to make it look gorier. And it’s like ‘no, I don’t want to do that. That might offend somebody,'” Piersol said.

Eric Gonzales, who works for CBS Affiliate KBOI2 in Idaho, claims he called the Secret Service and asked what they think of it, and they told him that “they will look into it.”

Piersol’s neighbors have not complained about him featuring President Obama’s head on a stick in the display, but one parent did have to answer a question raised by his son.

“My son asked me if it was a little bit prejudice towards certain individuals, say maybe the president because it has a head over there with a machete, I said no I don’t think it’s directed towards anybody,” explained local resident Wally Lester. “ think it just happens to be that situation the way they put it together.”
