Noose on display near voting booths in southwest Missouri county draws protests

Missouri Democrats on Friday condemned the display of a noose near voting booths in Stone County, Mo., calling it "clear intimidation" of Black voters. A county official said the noose is part a historical exhibit in place for years marking the last legal hanging in the state and that it is now covered up.

They also had to cover up displays of job applications and fathers day cards.

Since when is there any black people in Stone county. I lived down there for a while and there was not one black person in any of those counties all the way down to Carol county AR. Have things changed?

I don’t see a problem with a noose, especially near a voting place, a church or a school.

The person who was hung in 1937 was not black. That display has been there for years. Everybody needs to chill out.

Another reason to never vote Democrat.

If this offends them they have no business dictating public policy.

Yet I am offended by the 150 plus murders in the Metro by mostly those offended by the noose. White supremacists kill about 25 people a year. Now do some simpleton math and take 150 times all major cities in america, compare them to 25.
