    She mentioned the Fort Hood shootings and pulled her head-scarf! Oh the humanity. The woman was wrong no doubt, but really she should have been kicked out of the store and nothing more.

    A $5K bail! :confused: Up to $25K fine! :confused: Possibly 3 years in jail! :confused:

    You have to be kidding. Hate crime should be restricted to vandalism to home or business and violence (meaning a punch, kick or beating that requires hospitalization). Hate crimes for mere words and a harmless tug of clothing is an abuse of justice.

    And CAIR request federal criminal charges is beyond ironic, since they are traitors living in America who are guilt of hate crimes whenever they speak.

    First, I dont like this hate crime bs anymore than the next person...but since it IS the law this lady totally deserves to be hit with it.

    She intentionally pulled this ladys scarf because of her anti-Islamic feelings. Period, theres no arguing that.

    The lady was wrong no doubt. In my opinion she is a worthless piece of trailer trash and the Muslim American was definitely the victim.

    But give me a break the punishment is well out of balance with the crime.

    People should keep their damned hands off of other people, PERIOD!!!

    For whatever reason, and the offender in this case was very stupid. Sometimes it has consequences. What she did was assault, she did it because of perceived religious affilliation. That qualifies under the statutes.

    Wrong - YES
    Worthy of Minimal Punishment - YES
    Punishment that is so harsh that it arguable violates the 8th amendments (no excessive fines and bails is also part of the amendment) - ABSOLUTELY NOT

    From your link:
    "she said. "My scarf didn't come off because it was on very tight, but my head was tugged back."

    Sounds like she caused this woman physical harm and did more than just mention the Fort Hood shootings, she made a "made a loud reference to the killings at Fort Hood". Plus this woman accosted her twice in the store. She was following her around.

    I do agree that the bail and fine seem a bit high but the judge probably had his/her reasons. Perhaps he/she could see from her demeanor that this is a dangerous person. Perhaps she has a history of this kind of thing.

    Again she was wrong and should have some punishment, such as community service. But a $5K bail, up to $25K fine and possible 3 years in jail! That is beyond an abuse of authority.
