USPS, FBI investigating rope found in shape of noose at Gaithersburg MD postal facility

10/20/2017 An investigation is underway after a rope was found in the shape of a noose at a post office in Gaithersburg.

The FBI and the U.S. Postal Service have confirmed the rope was found in the vehicle maintenance facility of the post office located along Shady Grove Road. A Postal Service representative said it was found on a hook of a piece of equipment.


The United States Postal Inspection Service say it is investigating the incident. Officials say they are trying to determine if it was actually a noose.

Over the last year, there have been several nooses found around the D.C. region that include the campus of American University, the National Museum of African American History and Culture, a construction site in Southeast D.C., a fraternity house at the University of Maryland, a middle school in Anne Arundel County in Maryland, and in a neighborhood in Montgomery Village in Maryland.

  1. dear Khoy , It has been written that 200,000 to 300,000 voters were denied the right to vote last election. Not one citizen should be denied the right to vote! How many citizens have been denied the right to buy their precious guns? Not misinformed.

  2. cameras don’t work….they do protect the right to vote but you dumarats vote 3 times in a election and you still are losers….

  3. well at least he moved from prefunding to guns…….25,000 car crash’s a year and 50 million abortions since 1968……thats the real story!

  4. I would be embarrassed to be a member of a group that got upset because something looked like a “noose”. Stand tall, put your shoulders back and act like a MAN. (girly-boys, who gives a crap)

  5. Welcome to the new America run by gun huggers and pure white religious pud wackers. Our country is going back in time Why is it the Ratpublicans want to “protect to right to cuddle guns” the famous second amendment, while the same Ratpublicans ignore the amendments that protect the right to vote? So many reasons are dreamed up to deny people the right to vote, while people are encouraged to have a munitions dump of their own. What of the amendments that made African Americans citizens, gave them the right to vote, and the amendment that gave women the right to vote!

    • Why don’t you walk down the street on the doubt side of Chicago and tell me how that works out for you.
