A noose was found dangling in a Long Island town’s police department, horrifying officials who rushed to condemn the hateful act.
The scandal at the Hempstead Police Department began early Friday, when a maintenance man spotted the noose hanging from a pipe in a men’s locker room.
Officials said they were stunned that racism would rear its head in the diverse department – and questioned whether the act was linked to a deputy chief’s recent promotion or a push to recruit more minorities.
