Stanford University investigates noose in tree as hate crime

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Stanford University says it found a noose hanging from a tree outside of a residence hall and is investigating the incident as a hate crime. In an email to students and staff, university officials said campus safety authorities immediately “removed the noose and retained it as evidence,” after receiving a report Sunday evening that a noose was seen outside an undergraduate dormitory. University officials called it “a reprehensible symbol of anti-Black racism and violence that will not be tolerated on our campus.” A Stanford spokesman did not answer questions seeking more details on the incident.
