Another Noose Hanging from a Tree

11 09 2007

The Washington Post reported yesterday that police are investigating a possible hate crime at the University of Maryland.

The article states:

The noose, small and crudely tied, was found Thursday on a tree near the Nyumburu Cultural Center, home to the Black Faculty and Staff Association, the Black Explosion newspaper and other organizations.

Police said they have opened a criminal investigation and are treating the case as a hate crime.

Glad to know that the police are not treating the incident as just another silly prank.
