An FDNY electrician who filed a race discrimination complaint against the department in December says a noose was left in front of his work locker last week.
Gregory Seabrook, an FDNY communications electrician for nearly 20 years, found the noose Thursday at the FDNY facility at 87 Union St. in Brooklyn, his lawyers said yesterday.
“There’s an ominous message behind it,” lawyer Stephen Jackson said of the nearly 3-foot-long noose, which he plans to display at a press conference today and then hand over to authorities.
The noose is “elaborately constructed” and tied in a “monkey knot,” Seabrook’s lawyers say.
“That was a type of weapon used as a flogging knot to beat slaves,” Jackson said. “It’s very thick and very hard and it’s designed to cause injuries.”
