Amazon construction site shut again as another noose found
Amazon has halted construction of a new US warehouse again after an eighth noose was found at the site. Construction stopped at the Windsor, Connecticut site for the second time within a week on Wednesday. Windsor Police Chief Donald Melanson said at a press conference that workers had found a red rope "With a noose tied at the end" on the fifth floor of the site. Amazon recently increased the amount of reward money available for information on the nooses from $50,000 to $100,000. "The events of the past several weeks at the Amazon construction site in Windsor have been disgusting and hateful," said Ned Lamont, the Democratic Governor of Connecticut, and Susan Bysiewicz, Lieutenant Governor, in a joint statement.
