Trick or Treat?

Am I the only one who hears of a noose in October and immediately thinks Halloween?

3rd Noose Found In Recent Long Island Trend
Discovery One Of Many Hate Symbols Of Old South Lynchings

GARDEN CITY, N.Y. (AP) ― A noose was found today on a fence at a Long Island public works garage, a day after two nooses were found at another municipality's highway department garage.

Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray today announced that the Nassau County town's 2,000 employees will undergo diversity and sensitivity training.

The latest noose was found this morning, hanging off a chain-link fence, inside a Nassau County Department of Public Works facility in Baldwin.

Isn't there the slightest possibility that this has nothing to do with hate but an upcoming holiday?
