US Mint worker leaves noose for black colleague

08 Juillet 2017

In an ignorant display of passive aggressiveness combined with racism, a United States Mint Philadelphia employee came up with the awful idea to leave a noose at the work station of his black colleague.

The discovery was made by a passerby outside Penn Medicine, formerly Graduate Hospital, at 18th and Lombard just before 10 a.m. Friday. A police spokesman said he was unaware of the finding, but expected to receive more information later in the morning. "We looked at the camera and wasn't able to see anything".

The Mint employee who left the rope at his black co-worker's desk undoubtedly knew the racist implications behind his actions and deliberately set out to send this abhorrent message. That worker has been placed on administrative leave.

North Korea's missile launch saw their dreaded ICBM fly into the Sea of Japan, after being in the air for more than half an hour. THAAD interceptors are positioned in Guam which are meant to help guard against a missile attacks, such as one from North Korea.

Nooses were also found at a frat house at the University of Maryland, a middle school in Florida, and at two high schools in separate incidents in North Carolina.

Authorities at the U.S. Mint, not the Philadelphia police, were in charge of leading the investigation into that incident, according to a police spokesperson.

This is a developing story.
