"I don't for one second think a wooden cross staked into the ground is offensive to the majority of the people that we serve." -Police Chief Jeremy Clark
(Searcy, AR)—Police Chief Jeremy Clark is refusing to take down a cross that was planted on the lawn of the police department in Searcy a year before he took office after the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) contacted him with a request to remove it.
"Someone put it there," said Clark. "I didn't put it there—I don't know who did. I wasn't going to remove it just because this organization in another state told us that we should."
"The only person that sees that cross every day is me," he added, "unless someone is purposely trying to look for it. You can see these crosses in yards all over the community we service. I don't for one second think a wooden cross staked into the ground is offensive to the majority of the people that we serve."
