"Guns don't kill people...."
"Nooses don't kill people...."
Wonder why this maintenance worker didn't ask any of the staff at the hospital what that rope was? He went straight to the Feds. "What a maroon." as Bugs would say.
I think this worker needs to be investigated by the feds for reporting a non existent hate crime—actually, a hate crime in reverse.

The concept of “hate crime” is a liberal contrivance used to justify a punishment that goes beyond that prescribed by law merely to achieve satisfaction by the acuser.
It ought to be illegal if the criteria of cruel and unusual punishment is used.

(How much easier is self-sacrifice than self-realization)
Burning an American Flag which millions have shed blood to defend....well that's free speech.
Wearing pink T-shirts with hateful anti-President Bush slogans and shouting during Senate and House committee meetings thus disrupting procedings....well that's free speech.
Tying nooses and hanging them from trees-HATE SPEECH, HATE SPEECH!
Brandishing the Confederate Battle Flag-HATE SPEECH, HATE SPEECH!
Now it has become...finding any piece of rope left lying around with a loop in it-HATE SPEECH, HATE SPEECH!
Funny how anything, no matter how objectionable it may be, as long as Liberals agree with it is "free speech," but if Liberals disagree with it, no matter how benign it may be, it is automatically "hate speech."
Anyone out there detect a double standard? Just pondering...

“...administrators at the hospital and medical school notified federal authorities...”
The federal government has its nose in everything. Too many useless bureaucrats. If a bureaucrat isn’t involved in national defense, fire him, give him a cardboard box and a map to the nearest bridge.

.....administrators at the hospital and medical school notified federal authorities because they were concerned the rope with loops on each end might have been placed in the break room to intimidate blacks.
If this indicates the intelligence level of the administrators at the medical school, remind me never to visit that place.

So now all you have to do if you want publicity is go to Home Depot, buy a rope, make a noose, plant it somewhere (at your workplace, if you don’t like your boss) and then “find” it and start screaming bloody murder to the police and the ever-gullible press. Gee! What fun! And all for the price of a piece of rope!

No, he isn’t. He is a foot-soldier in a war that some don’t even know is going on.

Of course, we all agree that every time somebody plants or finds a noose somewhere, the whole world needs to know about it.

Jeeze, I have FOUR looped ropes hanging from the rafters in my garage. I use the to hang (Oh,oh, make that “suspend”) furniture parts for staining and drying.
Probably better take them down before it becomes a federal case.

Has a noose been found in the Western United States? Say West of the Mississippi?

(It is a shame that when these people give a riot)
one of the first knots Boy Scouts learn to tie early in their training is a Bowling Knot which resembles a noose.
Will the government remove that knot from acceptable knots to be tied by Scouts and firemen??
