‘My Ancestors Were Lynched And Hung’: Delaware Sisters Outraged After Finding Noose Hanging Inside Home Depot

WILMINGTON, Del. (CBS) — A quick trip to the neighborhood Home Depot for a gift turned into a terrifying experience for Lisa Flowers and her sister, Lyonni Flowers. The day took a frightening turn when they found a large hangman’s noose made from thick rope dangling from the spool it came from.

“She said, ‘Do you see it?’ And I turned around and I don’t think I could move,” Lisa Flowers said.


“It was rage to see something like that,” Lyonni Flowers added.

The two women asked for a manager at the store on Millers Road in Wilmington, though they say it took some time for him to come.

“He stated to us, ‘This is not what we do,’ and at the same time he’s talking, he’s reaching into his pocket for a box knife,” said Lisa Flowers.

The Flowers sisters say they asked management to check video surveillance, but they were told the cameras didn’t record the incident, so Lisa Flowers shared a Facebook post that has been shared more than 400 times.

“We’ve had some people say that is a rope that is used for animals and sailors,” she said.

But Lisa Flowers says this was meant to scare and frighten. :eek:

And that it is a symbol that brings back painful memories from our country’s not so distant past. :rolleyes:

“My ancestors used to be lynched and hung and it makes me think of that rope hanging from a tree,” she said. “Either someone was just hanging from it or someone was about to be hung from it.” :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

A Home Depot spokesperson says they are appalled and disturbed by the incident.

However, the Flowers sisters say no one from corporate has contacted them directly.

Noose News Is Once Again Fake News

Back in June I posted this CNN story:

University of Michigan investigating after noose found at employee’s desk

(CNN) University of Michigan police are investigating after a noose was found on an employee’s desk at a university hospital.

The university has “taken immediate action” to investigate the incident that occurred Thursday as an act of discrimination and criminal ethnic intimidation, said Dr. Marschall S. Runge, the dean of the University of Michigan Medical School.

“This act of hate violates all of the values that we hold dear and will not be tolerated,” Runge said in a statement, calling the noose a “symbol of hate and discrimination.”

As I’ve long pointed out, perhaps the surest tell of some kind of Hate Hoax or Hate Hypochondria is a noose.

So, from Michigan Live today:

Rope resembling noose found at UM hospital was not hate crime, police say

ANN ARBOR, MI – A rope resembling a noose found inside University Hospital was not the result of a hate crime, but a practice knot used in fishing, University of Michigan police have found.

An investigation by UM’s Division of Public Safety and Security concluded the spool rope used for medical procedures was being used by a person on a break to practice tying a “Uni Knot,” which is a type of knot used for fishing. After the spool was returned to the storage area, the knot was still in place and discovered the following day by an employee. …

After the initial report, the incident was described as “a symbol of hate and discrimination” by Marschall Runge, executive vice president for medical affairs and dean of the UM Medical School.

Based on multiple witness interviews and other evidence, however, UM police do not believe that the incident was a hate crime.

For the umpteenth time, the local cops come out of a Hate Hysteria episode looking saner than the Great and the Good, such as, in this case, the dean of the University of Michigan medical school.

Update: So far, the retraction only seems to be on Michigan Live. We’ll see whether or not this new noose news goes national…

WILMINGTON, Del. (CBS) — Police say a customer has come forward and accepted responsibility after a noose was found hanging in the aisle of a Home Depot in Wilmington last week. Two sisters were outraged to find the noose and brought it to a manager’s attention.

Delaware State Police on Wednesday said a customer was is the Home Depot on the 3600 block of Miller Road last week and was shopping for ropes and tied the noose.

Police say the customer is currently building a canopy for a customer who asked for different types of “rope knots” as decorations. The customer told police it was tied strictly for work purposes and there was no racial motive behind the noose.

Police were called to the Home Depot on Monday morning for a terroristic threatening complaint. Police say a store manager received threatening phone calls while at work the day prior — two by women and one by a man calling him a racist and cursing at him.

The manager told police that on Friday, he was called to the rope aisle to help a customer. The manager said he was busy with another customer so he sent another employee to help.

The manager told police he then heard two sheboons screechng his name so he ran to the rope aisle, where he told police the women cursed at him over the noose.

The manager said he apologized and cut it down immediately and gave the women the name of the district manager they could contact.

Delaware State Police continue to investigate the incident.

‘Needs To Be Charged With A Hate Crime’: Community Activists Say Noose Found At Home Depot Racially Motivated, Not Misunderstanding
By CBS3 Staff
July 18, 2019 at 1:15 pm

WILMINGTON, Del. (CBS) — Coonmunity activists are not buying the explanation that a noose found hanging in a Home Depot in Delaware was not racially motivated and just a misunderstanding. Two sisters, Lisa and Lyonni Flowers, found the noose in a Home Depot on the 3600 block of Miller Road in Wilmington last week and are now doing the chicken neck thang.

Blacktivists and coonmunity leaders want Whitey to grovel, the customer’s name released and a thorough investigation as they prayed for justice :rolleyes: outside of the store on Thursday.

Last Friday, the Flowers sisters found a large hangman’s noose dangling from the spool it came from. :eek:

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 :afro:, 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 chuttered.

The sisters say they were disturbed about the response from the store manager.

“He looked. If it was different knots he wouldn’t have just pointed that one out so he knew it was wrong, just as well as I did. He cut it down and said, ‘What else can I do?’” Lyonni Flowers said.

“No empathy, didn’t take our names to pass on to his superior. :rolleyes: We have yet to hear from the Home Depot,” explained Lisa Flowers.

Their mother, Doris Flowers, who is a longtime native and a retired Delaware state worker, wants to see the store footage.

“We want a public apology as well as a personal apology,” she said.

CBS3 reached out to Home Depot about releasing surveillance video. They didn’t respond to that, saying they’re only investigating.

Community activists say they’re willing to boycott the store. :clap:
