This was, unfortunately, inevitable. James Faulk has decorated his University Park home in the most tasteless way imaginable. It's got everything. Caution tape, waste disposal barrels, trash bags filled with "biohazards."

Faulk tells FOX 4 that police were called the first night he put up his display, so he added a "Happy Halloween" sign to his balcony. The items used in the display were purchased at a hospital auction for less than $150 he says. Faulk says he isn't finished with the display. He plans to board up his door and put a dummy in a hospital bed in the window soon.

Faulk, who talked to FOX cameras in a "CDC Trainee" uniform and a face mask, told the TV station that people offended by the display need to "lighten up."

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
