A disturbing display is making the statement that real life can be scarier than Halloween fantasy.

You might say it's ripped from the headlines.

It is outside a home on Detroit’s west side and aimed at calling attention to many of the problems we face - from crime and terrorism, to police shootings and the flint water crisis.

This is at the same house on Mendota where a dummy sparked fears of a dead body last year.

The woman behind the display says her grandkids came up with the idea of making a statement this year.

The display is taken in at night, so the dummies don't get stolen.
