Amazon closed the site over the weekend, saying it was putting additional security measures after a seventh noose was found last week. The company closed the site again Wednesday to allow the FBI to investigate after the new loop was found under some electrical materials. Amazon spokesperson Kelly Nantel said in a statement. Hate, racism, or discrimination have no place in our society and are certainly not tolerated in any Amazon workplace,” Nantel said. “We will continue to work with all levels of law enforcement as well as our development partners, to hold the perpetrators
accountable and ensure that all members of our community feel valued, respected and safe.” A message was left Wednesday for Windsor police, who also have denounced the nooses and called them “potential” hate crimes. Windsor police have been working with the FBI and state police to identify those responsible for the loops, the first of which was found at the site last month. A $100,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the identification of the culprits.
Gov. Ned Lamont called the nooses “racist provocation of the worst type.”
