Police in New York City are scrambling to locate the producers of a YouTube video that depicts a stolen replica of the Statue of Liberty blindfolded, beheaded and smashed into pieces a display that one terror expert says is intended to "instill fear" in everyday Americans.

The 59-second video shows the 8-foot, 200-pound replica statue, which was stolen from a Brooklyn coffee shop last month, being decapitated and pulverized accompanied by the words "We don't want your freedom" and "Death to America."

"That's their purpose, to show their distaste to freedom and to also show that the movement of jihadists is alive and well," Addicott told FOXNews.com.

The video, which was dated July 4, was sent anonymously to the New York Daily News and to Debi Ryan, owner of Vox Pop, a coffee shop known for left-wing-leaning political debate and poetry readings. The clip had been viewed at least 2,500 times as of midday Thursday.

"I'm scared," Ryan told the New York Post. "I'm hoping I don't have to fear for my life, but I feel very nervous This was clearly politically motivated. Whoever did this is trying to shut us up. They were targeting what we represent."
