Effigy found in Oakland park after 'nooses' discovered

Published Fri Jun 19 2020 01:44:08 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
Police in Oakland say they have opened an investigation after a caller reported finding an effigy hanging from a tree at a city park. Police released pictures of the effigy on the ground, saying the caller had taken it down before they arrived. The incident came a day after the city's mayor said “nooses” were found dangling from trees in the same park. A resident, who is black, stepped forward Wednesday to say the ropes actually were part of a rigging he and his friends used for a larger swing system.
