    What are you going to charge them with?
    The liberal politician has the only job where they go to the office to work for everyone but those who pay their salary.

If its ok to arrest someone with a noose for a hate crime can we arrest someone with a turbin for an act of terrorism?
      Hey, I could go along with the turbin part.

        A vehicle or baseball bat can do the same. Again, it's about intent.

        There are real uses for a noose other than to hang a human.

          Again, it speaks to intent. Hitler and the Nazis did not invent the swastika. You'll find it in Navajo, Buddhist, and (I believe) Hindu decorative designs/symbols.

          If those people were spray painting swastikas to shock and intimidate minorities, they needed to be booked. But, I'm not going into a gallery or museum displaying artifacts from other cultures with the swastika on them, and arresting the staff.

                    Never mind, I looked up your posts and found one where you said you were only a part time deputy in a little town, so I guess thats why you don't know what your talking about.

                          Well, I hope you learn something, if it's true, because I can spot an imposter pretty easily by ones posts. Form reading your posts, I know that at this time you don't know much. If you make it, you shouldn't throw that Mayberry stuff around, because the TN Highway Patrol doesn't touch any of the Interstate roads in major urban areas. Except when they sit in construction zones, doing nothing.

                            It's true, anyone can look up what you said. You were a part time deputy and lost your position with an administration change.

                              I have no idea if this is true, but I was told that 13 loops make it an "official" hangman's noose, and only the executioner could have a hangman's noose.

                              Anything else is just a fancy slipknot.

                              I think intent has to be there to qualify as a hate crime.

                              By the way, google hangman's noose+law....you may be surprised to see there are a few cases where people were harassed using them.

                                http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hangman's_knot

                                The hangman's knot or hangman's noose (also known as a collar during Elizabethan times) is a well-known knot most often associated with its use in hanging. For a hanging, the knot of the rope is typically placed under or just behind the left ear. As the blow when the condemned drops to the end of the rope is supposed to break the neck (for modern "long-drop" hangings), this knot can add additional striking force against the head and neck. The knot is non-jamming but tends to resist attempts to loosen it.


                                The hangman's knot was used on ropes in Colonial America as well as England during the 16th and 18th centuries. It is still used in those US states which allow hanging as method of capital punishment.


                                For Willowdared:
                                Each additional coil adds friction to the knot, which makes the noose harder to pull closed or open. The number of coils should therefore be adjusted depending on the intended use, the type and thickness of rope, and environmental conditions such as wet or greasy rope. Six to eight loops are normal when using natural ropes; more may be used on nylon ropes. One coil makes it equivalent to the simple slip knot.

                                According to tradition, the hangman's noose must have 13 coils
