Nooses Found Hanging From Forklift On Long Island
One Hanging Around Neck Of Stuffed Doll With Tar Spread Across Face
NEW YORK (CBS)



Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray and Councilwoman Dorothy Goosby said that two nooses were left dangling from a forklift at the town's highway yard in Roosevelt, Long Island.

One of the nooses was apparently hanging around the neck of a stuffed cartoon figure that had tar spread across its face.

Murray says the nooses were found around lunchtime by a yard worker.

This isn't the first time a noose was found in the town of Hempstead recently. Less than a month ago a noose was discovered inside the men's locker room at the Hempstead police department.

It's just the latest in a string of racial incidents that have jarred New York City in recent weeks.

Last week, there was a disturbing discovery near Ground Zero in Manhattan, where a noose was found hanging from a lamppost at the Church Street Post Office.

Postal workers in a second floor office at Church Street noticed the noose Thursday afternoon.

Building managers removed the noose and turned it over to the NYPD's hate crimes unit for investigation.

Speaking to reporters following a ceremony at a police memorial, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly suggested that the noose outside the post office could have been an attempt to imitate a discovery of a noose at Columbia, which shocked the Ivy League campus and received extensive news coverage.

"We have to be concerned about a copycat being out there," he said, adding that police had no suspects or motives in either incident.

Meanwhile, detectives at the NYPD Hate Crime task force have 56 hours of surveillance tapes to comb through, trying to catch the person who hung a noose on Professor Madonna Constantine's door at Columbia University.

Nooses -- deplored as symbols of lynchings in the Old South -- have appeared in recent incidents in the New York area and across the country.

In Queens, a white woman was arrested after threatening to kill her black neighbor's children with a noose.

Other nooses have been found at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut, and in the Hempstead Police Department's locker room on Long Island.

Hate crimes in New York City were up 10 percent last year, with 256 incidents reported. Most recently, a Swastika was discovered in a bathroom stall at Columbia University.
Seems it'd becoming quite the trend here in NY.

Wouldn't be the first time...

I don't really read much from Ann Coulter anymore, but she has some great points in this weeks column of hate...


Out of legions, here are just a few hoax hate crimes on college campuses.

-- In 1997, at Duke University, a black doll was found hanging by a noose from a tree at the precise spot where the Black Student Alliance was to be holding a rally against racism. Two black students later admitted they were the culprits and were immediately praised for bringing attention to the problem of racism on campus. Indeed, four years later the president of Duke gave a baccalaureate address nostalgically describing the hoax as a "protest" against racism. Next stop: the Nobel Peace Prize.

-- In 2003, vile racial epithets were scrawled on the dorm room doors at Ole Miss, producing mass protests and a "Say No to Racism" march. And then it turned out the graffiti had been written by black students, against whom no charges were brought. A "Say Yes to Racism" rally at Ole Miss was later canceled due to lack of interest.

-- In 2005, obscenity-laced racist and anti-Semitic messages appeared on dormitory walls at the College of Wooster in Ohio. The fliers were instantly blamed on "typical white males," even though all the letter I's in the epithets were dotted with little hearts. Breadcrumbs left by the culprits included the message "Vote Goldwater" among the obscenities. The matter was dropped and flushed down the memory hole when the perpetrators turned out to be a group of leftist students led by a black studies major.

-- Just this year, anti-Muslim fliers were put out on the George Washington University campus -- by leftists, including a member of "Iraq Veterans Against War." When it was thought the leaflets were from the conservative group Young Americans For Freedom, the dean called for the expulsion of the culprits and the university demanded that YAF officers sign a statement disavowing "hate speech." But when it turned out leftists had distributed the fliers, the matter was dropped faster than Larry Craig was dropped from Mitt Romney's campaign.

The one real example of racism on a college campus in recent memory was perpetrated against white men of the Duke lacrosse team. As that injustice was being perpetrated, gender and ethnic professors at Duke kept droning on about the "racism and sexism" students "live with every day" -- as the professors put it in an open letter that falsely presumed the players were guilty of ****. We don't expect a rally against the prejudiced professors, but an apology might be nice.

I understand the bbboooys theory that the people behind these noose hangings are a bunch of idiots seeking attention. However when somebody actually puts a doll in the noose and smears it with tar that is a different story. That is obvious anger and serious shit right there.

I really don't see how hanging nooses is a crime in itself. Maybe trespassing to hang them, but who is the victim and what's the crime?

<Stupid Typing Guy>Just because there is no clear cut victim doesn't mean there aren't any victims from the century's of slavery and the pain they've felt from it.</STG>

Seriously, it's people boo-hooing over a stoopid noose.

Words HURT! :rolleyes:
