Greg Olyphant is a registered Democrat and says he proudly supported Barack Obama for president.
So he wasn’t happy to find out that someone hung a cutout of the president-elect with a noose around the neck on the front porch of a house at 909 Fourth St., which he purchased earlier this year.
Olyphant, a professor of geology at Indiana University, plans to move into the house. Meanwhile, a contractor is doing improvements.
Last week, the Optic ran a photo of the cutout, which seemed to harken back to the times when blacks were lynched in the United States.
