Slaughtered Pig Left Outside of Cypress Mosque a Possible Hate Crime

Categories: Crime

Interfaith leaders were slated to hold a press conference today at 11:30 at the Cypress mosque.

This summer, dead pigs or pig parts have been found near a proposed mosque site in Chino, California and a mosque in Montauban, France.

In Cheltenham, England, a British army veteran was sentenced to four months in prison for fastening a pig's head to the gates of a mosque; he claimed to be outraged after he saw British Muslims burning poppies. Since World War I in the UK, poppies have been symbolic of fallen soldiers.

The Cypress mosque has announced plans to install a security system.

Hate crime. In 1970 while at the University of Iowa during the protests over Kent State we dumped a pigs head in front of a sororoity house. Head left over from a pig roast. They wrote it up in the paper as part of a protest. It was just a bunch of frat guys having fun.

Oh big deal. Really? There are worse things happening. Things like this have been going on for hundreds of years and this surprises people? Come on HP.

Vandalism. Animal cruelty. Mischief. Mean-spirited. Wrong: YES. Hate crime: NO

I'm going to put this in the "shit I don't care about column." Why would anyone be offended by free bacon?
