Description
A small container bearing the sign at top: West Point Military Academy, is opened to reveal a black military cadet grimacing in agony, bound seated on a chair, his knees to his chest, his wrists and shins tied, and his feet bare. A saw cuts deeply into his bleeding head, another into his ear, while a razor cuts his bleeding foot. Guns, knives, billy clubs, and other weapons point towards him menacingly.
