State agency to remove #LeonardPeltier artwork

10.3.16

State agency to remove convicted cop killer's artwork: -- [king5] -- Chauncey Peltier, Leonard's son, is exhibiting his father's paintings in galleries around the country in an attempt to raise awareness for his father's attempt to be granted a presidential pardon.

"He's nothing but a thug," said retired FBI agent Ray Lauer. "He's an unrepentant cop killer."

Lauer is a member of the Retired FBI Agents Association, which wrote a letter to Labor and Industries demanding the removal of the paintings.

A Labor and Industries spokesperson said the works will be "rotated out" of the exhibit next week and will be replaced by another artist.

The paintings were part of a lobby exhibit to mark National American Indian Heritage Month by the Department of Labor and Industries.
