A Detroit grandmother is using Halloween to make a statement about police brutality and Black Lives Matter.

“The kids aren’t afraid of the boogie man anymore,” Larethia Haddon said to Fox WJBK“They say grandma; we’re scared to go outside and play.”

Haddon’s front yard is decorated with images of the Flint water crisis, as well as life sized body with his hands raised in the air.

“A lady was standing out here yesterday looking at the scene, and she was just crying, just breaking down in tears,” Haddon said. “So I came out, and I just held her. To thwart confusion, Haddon only keeps up the decorations during the day. She also welcomed neighbors and those who want to make a change to her local church. “We have to start reaching out and helping each other,” she said. “If we don’t, this scene in my yard is going to continue to be a reality.”
