When I worked at Halloween USA in the early 2000s, we were forced to remove our hanged men props from the front windows. If I recall correctly, the news did a big write-up, in addition to the television coverage, which played a large part in the hoopla, since many people are nothing more than mindless lemmings. Despite a personal incident in my life, I am not offended in the least by anyone choosing to use a hanging body. My philosophy is thus: If you do not like it, simply avert your eyes.
