The controversial Halloween display of an effigy of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin hanging by a noose outside a home near Los Angeles has been taken down, local authorities said.
The people who hung the figure from the roof of their house "began to realise what they had done caused a little more of a reaction than they had hoped for", said spokesman for the sheriff of Los Angeles Steve Whitmore today.
For the Halloween holiday many Americans decorate their homes with ghoulish displays of monsters, witches and ghosts.
