Green Bay bar owner to remove controversial display

Posted: Updated:

GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- A Green Bay bar owner agreed to take down a controversial scene staged outside his establishment.

Dave Nichols put up a fake lynching scene with a hanging dummy and signs that say equality and justice.

He says the display is to protest what he feels is unequal treatment by police.

"I get held accountable for everything that happens outside my bar in my parking lot and I get a citation or a letter or a problem every time any incident happens," says Nichols.

Nichols' bar has been suspended for the past month due to a licensing issue.

Green Bay police say there's nothing illegal about the display.
