A disturbing discovery at the site of the Obama Presidential Center in Chicago has put construction on pause … because someone left a noose in the area.
The group overseeing construction, Lakeside Alliance, says operations were halted after “an act of hate was discovered at the project site.”
Chicago police are on the case … a CPD officer was photographed leaving the construction site Thursday afternoon with what appears to be plastic bag containing the rope.
