26 09 2007

Congressman Elijah E. Cummings has requested an investigation into the recent hanging of two nooses at the Coast Guard Academy, according to the Associated Press.

The superintendent of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London says he has ordered further investigation into two incidents in which nooses were left for a black cadet and an officer giving race relations training……

The first noose was left in the cadet’s bag July 15 on board the Coast Guard cutter Eagle, French said. The second was found in early August on the office floor of a female officer who had been conducting the race relations training in response to the first incident, he said.
