A Blue Lives Matter flag has been placed above the controversial "Police as Pigs" painting currently hanging in the United States Capitol.

It was unclear who placed the pro-law enforcement flag above the other painting. 

The Architect of the Capitol declared late Friday that the "Police as Pigs" artwork would be taken down on Tuesday following the holiday weekend because it violates House rules.
