Fifth Noose Found at Construction Site of Dominion Cove Point LNG Facility

December 8, 2016

On December 07, 2016 at approximately 11:50 a.m., the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office was notified by a representative of Kiewit Construction that a noose had been located on the construction site at the Dominion Cove Point LNG facility in Lusby.

This is the 5th such noose that has been found on this site. The Sheriff’s Office was contacted immediately upon the noose being located. The noose was collected and placed into CCSO property for evidence.

Kiewit construction is cooperating fully with CCSO detectives who are investigating these cases. Numerous CCSO resources have been deployed to assist with the investigation which is still ongoing.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Detective Nicholas DeFelice @ 4105352800 or defelinb@co.cal.md.us.

    Liberal losers, no doubt. Someone should just leave some play-doh and coloring books for them.

      No doubt

      idiot

      its on a closed construction site

      some CON rascist construction worker probably feels emboldened by our new alt right president elect….

      • Joy on December 8, 2016 at 2:24 pm

        Capitalization and punctuation are certainly not your strengths. Not to mention your horrific spelling – ” rascist” LOL By the way, this ” new alt right president elect ” you speak of is YOUR President! LOL~again (AT you) TRUMP NATION RULES!!!

      • Notaliberal on December 8, 2016 at 2:33 pm

        Are you slow? I can gurantee all 5 nooses weren’t put there after trump was elected, use your brain. What does it being a closed construction site have any relevance? And how the heck did u manage to bring race into this? This is clearly the work of those cove point whackadoo protestors, use your head. Geez.

      • anonymous on December 8, 2016 at 2:48 pm

        Lol so people can’t get on a closed construction site? Like the 500 other times protestors have climbed construction cranes and hang banners from? And your saying it was a white racist construction worker that’s hung a noose FIVE times because trump made him rascist.? LMFAO

        • Virgie BELL on December 9, 2016 at 1:23 pm

          Be realistic, who would climb construction cranes just to hang a noose. What is really going on is, that use to be an intimidation factor about 500 years ago. Ever hear the saying you can beat a dead horse and once he is down, he won’t move. That is not the case here. All I can say is it didn’t work 500 years ago and won’t work now. It only shows how ignorant you are to try an old intimidator. Let someone pull a noose at me and see what happens, LOL!

          • Anonymous on December 10, 2016 at 12:53 pm

            You really shouldn’t call anyone ignorant based on your response.

          • Anonymous on December 12, 2016 at 2:38 am

            First off, it says it was found on the site, that is all. Second, did protestors not already climb a crane just last year and hang a dump dominion banner? That is who would do it..use your head.

          • Brian on December 13, 2016 at 8:59 am

            They hung nooses in Calvert county 500 years ago to intimidate? Who exactly did this Virgie? Please share your historical wisdom!

          • Anonymous on December 15, 2016 at 9:26 pm

            Five hundred years ago? Really… five hundred years ago black people were slaves in this area so intimidation wasn’t with a noose, furthermore in the 19th century after slaves were freed and the “white devil” began to hang a noose outside the homes of the “black devil” and then with the turn of the century adding in the burning of a cross it did work as an “intimidator” and that is why we still hear so many complaints about it today.
            Historically correct wisdom now shared.

      A witty affront Notaliberal. I doubt many will get it.

    • Notaliberal on December 8, 2016 at 2:28 pm

      How am I an idiot? It’s obviously some liberal cry baby tree hugger, one of the previous protestors that can’t get over the fact dominion is here to stay. The only idiots are the ones that don’t get it, at least some people have common sense.

    Someone’s idea of a joke.
    If they find out who is doing it, they should tie the noose around their neck and let them see how it feels.

    • anonymous on December 8, 2016 at 2:42 pm

      Joke, nah. 5 times isn’t a joke. We all know its some butt-hurt protestor still salty over fracking. They’re too liberal I mean wimpy to do anything else. Pathetic really.

    • Virgie BELL on December 9, 2016 at 1:25 pm

      That would be too good for them! Take a whip and tan his hide!

    Heaven forbid some real full time local jobs are created. Liberal logic at its finest.

    • Anonymous on December 9, 2016 at 3:07 pm

      Dominion claims that this project is in the best interest of locals, yet the people who actually live nearby seem less than thrilled…

      • Anonymous on December 10, 2016 at 12:55 pm

        Of course. “Not in my backyard.” These same people would probably be OK with it if it was built in Prince Frederick.

  4. Greg Olmstead on December 8, 2016 at 1:45 pm

    Who cares.. People need to stop taking offense to such petty crap.

    • SleeplessinMD on December 9, 2016 at 1:27 pm

      You call it petty, but I bet 500 years ago they were hanging your ass from a tree, it would not had been petty. This is real life, get real!

      • Greg Olmstead on December 11, 2016 at 7:58 pm

        Stop living in the past! 500 years ago was 500 years ago. You can’t change the past, so stop making a big deal out of something that happened so long ago, which incidentally no one on the earth currently had anything to do with what happened 500 years ago. If everyone would stop taking offense to stupid stuff like this you’d likely see a lot less of it as those doing it would realize they aren’t getting the desired rise they wanted out of people. Let me know if the light bulb comes on for you and have a wonderful day!

      • Anonymous on December 12, 2016 at 2:39 am

        This isn’t 500 years ago you idiot, lmao.

        • Greg Olmstead on December 12, 2016 at 5:27 pm

          Glad to see somebody ^ is getting the point here! Leave the past in the past!

    Trump supporters would do something like that, they always saying make America great and white again so many Trump supporters think that way it’s sad. Trump supporters are just a bunch of yahoos

    • Joy on December 9, 2016 at 9:21 am

      Awww… are you still butt hurt at the election results? Maybe you’ll have another shot in 8 more years. TRUMP RULES!!!

    • paintchipeater on December 9, 2016 at 9:53 am

      You’re selling it, but I’m not buying it! That slogan of “make America white again” came from Rick Tyler’s “campaign billboard” seen in Polk County Tennessee. Since that time the liberal media and liberal pundits have made it a talking point using it to label Trump supporters. Funny how that “labeling thing” works, it’s ok for a minority or liberal to do it and get away with.

    • Dopey on December 9, 2016 at 1:23 pm

      What is sad is your grammar.

    • SleeplessinMD on December 9, 2016 at 1:29 pm

      Whether he is a Trump supporter or not, it will never be that way again. Like the infamous James Brown said, I would rather die on my feet then to keep living on my knees, go figure!

      • Brian on December 13, 2016 at 9:04 am

        “infamous James Brown” he is hardly infamous, he is barely famous…LMAO

    It’s awful difficult to get on the actual Cove Pt LNG site. There are numerous card readers that you must pass through, and you have to take a shuttle from Site A (which you have to scan a badge to even board) to get through security. There are multiple safeguards & checkpoints to limit access. I seriously doubt this is the work of the protestors. Someone on the inside is doing it.

    who cares

  11. Pat Bowers on December 12, 2016 at 8:47 am

    I think its a case of Reverse Physiology. Investigate those who found them.

    If you smelt it, your dealt it. My logic to everything.

  12. Pat Bowers on December 12, 2016 at 1:39 pm

    It’s an inside job! If article is correct and it was found on the construction site, that is a secured location.

    So the suspect list should be short.

    • Anonymous on December 14, 2016 at 1:18 pm

      Yep, should limit the list to 2,000 or so. Nice and short.

    Perhaps it’s a cry for help from someone contemplating suicide.

    • No More Fruit Cakes on December 15, 2016 at 8:40 am

      Hopefully they will take one for the team! Then, we would not have to hear their irritating calls for help anymore. Problem solved! You should consider swinging with them.
