BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — A hangman-type noose — a symbol of racist lynchings that sparked controversy in Stratford and elsewhere nationally over the last several months — was discovered Wednesday under a black police officer's patrol car.

The noose was discovered under the police cruiser parked outside the department's Community Services Division on Sylvan Avenue, said police Lt. James Viadero.
