MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Members of the Original Black Panthers in Milwaukee say they took down photos of six Black men and women that were hanging from a tree by nooses.

The photos were found in Milwaukee's Riverside Park.

They were of Breonna Taylor, Eric Garner, Botham Jean, Ahmaud Arbery, Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin.

King Rick, a member of the Original Black Panthers of Milwaukee, tells WISN, "Disgusting, intolerable and racist in nature. There is no reason, no reason for the disrespect of the beloved individuals who were murdered by those who were paid to protect and serve. It is appalling, it is intolerable and it is unacceptable."

It's unclear who hung the photos.
