The noose was found at North Tech High School Wednesday morning, according to KMOV. It isn’t yet clear if a student or a member of the school staff discovered it. After the police were called, the device was taken down.
The principal reportedly sent parents text messages to inform them of the incident.
Just last week, Duke University found a noose hanging on a campus tree; the student who admitted to hanging it was expelled from the university. This was considered the last straw for the school’s African-American students, with many claiming their presence is for the sake of diversity and not for their potential.
