  Roper's Knot Pages - The Noose
The second way to make a noose is to tie a running knot (a simple knot or hitch) round the standing part of the rope in a way that pulling on the knot-side closes the loop.
This noose is used as a poor snare for catching small birds.
The third noose is based on the the Multifold-Overhand-knot.

 Brendan Nyhan: George Allen and the noose
Dangling from a ficus tree in the corner was a noose, a reminder that the Republican politician saw some justification in frontier justice.
The noose on a tree outside his law office, he has said, symbolized his belief in strong punishment for violent criminals and was not meant to have racial overtones.
On the other hand, a tree is where one would expect to find a noose, especially prior to use (the occupant and noose were invariably cut down afterward.) To see a picture of a hangman's noose, look up The Ox Bow Incident on Amazon or elsewhere.

Before the rap musician Noose even dreamed of joining the ranks of hip-hop status, he was born Naseem in Jersey City, New Jersey on November 30, 1984 to parents of Arab decent.
Noose and his four elder brothers turned to the gritty streets of Jersey City to help their mother share the load of supporting themselves financially.
After the return of his father some six years later, Noose had surpassed his need for a father's attention and guidance and was drowning deep in the murky waters of street life.

 A Visual Database of Extremist Symbols, Logos and Tattoos
The hangman's noose has come to be one of the most powerful visual symbols directed against African-Americans, comparable in the emotions that it evokes to that of the swastika for Jews.
Its origins are connected to the history of lynching in America, particularly in the South after the Civil War, when violence or threat of violence replaced slavery as one of the main forms of social control that whites used on African-Americans.
The noose may appear as a drawing or rendering, but also quite common is the use of actual nooses to intimidate or harass African-Americans-for example, by leaving one at someone's home or at their workplace.

 There's a noose in the hoose – iTunes shoppers discover DRM | The Register
Johansen posted his code on Friday a week ago, but the discussions were rumbling on well into Thanksgiving: the remarkable thing being how people who had happily bought iTunes music without realizing that they were guinea pigs for a much larger social engineering experiment were now cottoning on.
Many times before, we've compared the social shift that DRM implies to putting your head in a noose, and waiting for someone else to tighten the rope.
