Michigan man taunts neighbors with Confederate flag and nooses outside home

“It’s a tree that is easily climbable,” said neighbor Nicole Behrendt. “Any kid could climb the tree and hang himself.”
Tomanovich fled inside his home when a WXYZ-TV reporter asked him for comment, but one of his employees admitted to hanging the second noose in response to the neighbor complaints.
“I love it,” said the employee, who displayed a Confederate flag license plate on his work pickup truck. “Screw ‘em.”
The employee, who declined to give his name, said he and his boss would not take down the flag or nooses.
“Hell, no,” he said. “We’re going to put up more.”

Tomanovich’s wife, Lindy, said the display was not intended to be racist.
“Robert has a friend that died in that way (hanging himself), and that’s in memory of his friend,” she said.
She claimed her husband’s family is from the south and they simply like the way the Confederate flag looks.
“Maybe they got too much time on their hands,” Lindy Tomanovich said about her meighbors. “There’s no crime in hanging a noose.”
Police said the display did not likely break any laws since it does not appear the display was intended to target anyone in particular, but they hope to mediate the dispute between the homeowners and their neighbors.



  1. “It’s a tree that is easily climbable,” said neighbor Nicole Behrendt. “Any kid could climb the tree and hang himself.” I remember being a kid and nothing said go hang myself better than a noose. Where is this woman's sense?

  2. The comments were priceless. That's a lot of hate in one place.

  3. Of course it's racist. The person is a white male and according to the government he is a racist by default.
    I admire him doing this. I'm sick & tired of being called a racist because of my skin color and this guy obviously feels the same. It's time for some blowback.


Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one, some peoples stink more than others too. Remember, I can make your opinion disappear, you keep the stink.
