3 Nooses Found at Delaware School.

Campus authorities initially called it a ” hate crime” and spent Wednesday morning looking for whoever hung them behind one of the campus buildings.NEWARK, Del. (AP) — The University of Delaware says three apparent nooses found hanging from a tree on campus are being investigated as a hate crime.In a previous statement acting University President Nancy Targett noted Monday night’s peaceful protest of a Fox pundit who has described the Black Lives Matter movement as a “violent hate group”. Targett said such “cowardly and reprehensible” acts won’t be tolerated and she said the university will work to identify those responsible and hold them accountable.

Instead, the alleged nooses – described as pieces of wire hanging by string – were actually part of decorative lanterns and had been there for weeks.
