FORT WAYNE -- A large doll resembling President Donald Trump that was hung from a tree by a noose in Indiana has left some area residents uncomfortable.

WANE-TV reported the doll is adorned with a flag of the former Soviet Union and was hung in Fort Wayne after Trump's inauguration. The TV station went to the home where it's hanging but said no one answered the door.

A banner on the home says: "Trump is a disgrace to America."

Jared Paden, who lives nearby, said it's "shocking." He said he's "not really excited about it being in my neighborhood."

Police said the homeowner is protected by the right to free speech.

Oakdale Neighborhood President Tom Tiernon said residents respect the right to free speech, but they're concerned "a line has been crossed."
