Dayum!! Am I going to have to start a new feature…NooseWatch 2007? WTF?
SacBee.com is reporting that a black mannequin was found with a noose around its neck in a county landfill building, and has triggered a joint hate crime investigation between the FBI and the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department. The mannequin was found in a machine shop at the county’s Kiefer Boulevard landfill. The out-of-the-way building, where tractors that plow under garbage are repaired, is accessible only to employees, said site supervisor Chris Perini. The county has released few details about the incident. Union officials and the head of the local NAACP said Friday they believed three employees and a supervisor, all of whom are white, work in the machine shop.
