Is Tying a Hangman's Noose Illegal?


To make a hangman's noose, lay a rope down in a 'U' shape, turn the right hand part of the rope in such a way that the 'U' shape is changed to 'S' shape, wrap the upper part of the 'S' at least five times around the middle part and then pool up the loop to tighten it. The hangman's noose is used to execute death sentence prisoners. The noose is relatively strong and can be used to make fishing lines.
