In reality a 13 loop hangmans noose is far more symbolic of old Western justice than of lynchings by night riders and such targeting Blacks. It wasn't very often they took the time to actually braid a noose. They just whipped out a simple half hitch slip knot and called it good. They seldom if ever took the time to braid an actual hangmans noose unless they had someone available who knew how to do it and did it well ahead of time.


However in the old West public hangings were always done with a proper noose. There is a reason it is braided the way it is. It is designed to break the neck when the victim is dropped from a height. Lynchings just killed via strangulation. No need for a proper hangmans noose.


So these women should be more triggered by a simple slip knot. Or possibly a lariat.

They don't know any better. It's from watching movies.

Delaware State Police said a customer came forward and took responsibility for the noose. The customer says they were shopping for ropes and simply tied the rope because they are currently building a canopy for a customer who requested different types of “rope knots” as decoration. The customer said there was no racial motive behind the noose.


Activists, though, aren’t buying it.


“I don’t believe that this fella was on a job. If he was, he was on the wrong job doing the wrong thing. We need to know his name. He needs to be made known and he needs to be charged with a hate crime,” one activist said.
Maybe if this person took a deep breath and stopped with the hysteria he/she would come to the realization that rope knots are indeed a thing and some people do indeed use them as decorations. Some seafood restaurants do this to keep kids entertained while they wait for their meals, does this mean the restaurants need to be doxxed and shamed because someone ran to a news source claiming they were "traumatized"? No, no it does not.

This sort of outrage is not healthy. You don't "need to know" this persons name, and you also can't wildly assume they were "doing the wrong job" because, you're just wildly assuming things.

Just a money grab from professional victims.
Yep, that's their business model. Hurt feelings, complain racism, sue, settle. Next job.

In many of the poorly done hanging the man choked to death over the course of 15-20 min.

OK, if it was something like the noose having the caricature of a Black person near the noose, I agree with the outrage. If not, don't be so easily offended.

You must be looking for a reason to be outraged, because that sentence doesn't even make sense.

I'll say.

And the more I read about those two dunces, and watch them on video, the angrier I get. Those two created a scene, started screaming and cursing at the manager, who quickly cut the rope--after which they continued to scream and curse at him.

It's bad enough that someone in a professional capacity has to kowtow to the likes of those two banshees, and be ordered around by them. But flipping out over a freakin' knot? They're a little "touched," I'd say.

NVPlumber should have been there to tell them that was a wild west hanging knot not a slave hanging knot
