In the eyes of the law

University of Maryland police are treating the hanging of an alleged noose on the College Park campus last week as a possible hate crime.

But, before an act can be a hate crime, it has to be a crime.

Is putting a noose in a tree an actual crime under Maryland or Prince George’s County law? What are your thoughts?
