There are any number of reasons to put a loop in a rope, cable, or piece of string. Loops are useful.
Just because a cable has a loop, doesn't make it a noose. But, when you go looking for nooses, you'll find them everywhere.
A construction company building a parking structure at Central Connecticut State University had hoisted an American flag at the end of one of its steel cable loops to mark Memorial Day — but a complaint that the cable was a noose prompted campus officials to apologize and pledge to take down the cable as soon as possible.
That is not a noose. That is a safety loop. It's used in rigging. We would think that the administrators at Central Connecticut State University would know the difference and educae whomever made the complaint. Either by a rational explanation, or by pointing and laughing. Sometimes mockery is a powerful education tool.
