- Amazon has temporarily shut down a warehouse construction project in Connecticut after a noose was found at the site for the seventh time. The disturbing discoveries have been made at a site in Windsor just north of Hartford. More recently, a rope tied like a noose was found Wednesday. The first noose was found at the site last month. Amazon says it's closing the site until Monday until additional security measures can be put in place.

SCOT X. ESDAILE: The NAACP will continue to find out who is exactly on this site and whose lives have been threatened.

DONALD MELANSON: We believe that this was hung with the intention of creating a disturbance on the job site. So we are treating it as a noose that was sending a message.

- A $100,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the culprits.
