Police are investigating the Browns Family Nuclear Plant in Athens, Ala., after a noose was found hanging on the premises recently. According to Travis Brickey, a spokesperson for the nation’s largest public utility company, the incident has not yet been confirmed as being racially motivated.“This type of activity will not be tolerated,”  Brickey said. “We are conducting a full investigation.” This is the fifth time that a noose has been found near the plant, which is owned by Tennessee Valley Authority. Despite the numerous accounts, TVA CEO Tom Kilgore, called the situation an “isolated incident.” Since the finding, the company’s Office of Inspector General is investigating the occurrence.

Brown’s Nucelar Family Plant is just the latest in noose-related hate crimes. In February a black man was convicted of mailing a noose to the home of an interracial couple, and in 2010 a Obama doll was found with a rope around its neck, hanging from a sign in Plains, Georgia.
