Police Noose Found Near NY Schoolyard

 

NEW YORK - Queens, New York, Senator Shirley L. Huntley is speaking out about a noose police found hanging near an elementary school Wednesday morning, 

 

“We know all too well that symbols of hatred fuel an atmosphere of intolerance and anger that can endanger lives.  That is why it is disturbing to hear that a noose was hung from a tree near a public school in Lindenwood. 

“I am outraged by this evil display. It is a painful reminder of the darkest chapters in our nation’s history and proof that we must remain vigilant.

“Consumers in the Lindenwood Shopping Center should not have to bear witness to this cowardly act, nor should the children down the street at P.S. 232.

“I join with my fellow lawmakers and community activists in Queens and in the City as a whole in calling for zero tolerance for this despicable behavior. I’m also appreciative to the officers at 106th precinct for treating this serious matter as a hate crime and doing everything in their power to find those responsible.”
