Dem plans to file criminal complaint against fellow lawmaker over painting

"Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-Mo.) on Monday said he plans to file a complaint with the Capitol Police against a Republican colleague for removing from the Capitol complex a constituent painting showing black protesters in confrontation with police officers depicted as animals. 
"The painting had been displayed since June in a tunnel connecting the Capitol and two House office buildings. But after the painting attracted attention from right-wing news outlets in recent weeks, Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) personally took it down on Friday and returned it to Clay's office.
"Clay, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, was incensed while speaking about the incident with reporters outside the House chamber on Monday night. He plans to hold an event to put the painting back on the wall on Tuesday morning with fellow Black Caucus members." . . .
"Any black parent will tell you that they have to have this conversation with their children about police and how to act around them. And so that’s the conversation we need to be having here. Not about taking some kid’s picture off the wall. It should be about, how do we change this attitude and improve the relationship between police and the black community?" Clay said.
