Police Impound “The Last Pedophile”

A New Mexico artist’s work, The Last Pedophile, a 1-inch, 1,100-pound sculpture piece, was impounded by Albuquerque police due to complaints of the sculpture’s title. “It’s a vertical chalk outline of somebody who’s been, a dead person on the ground,” the artist told KOAT in Albuquerque.

The sculpture’s title was so controversial that its title was covered over at the previous exhibition site.
