UK’s The Mirror is reporting that a Norfolk church is at the centre of a hate crime investigation after putting up a poster suggesting non-believers will burn in hell.

Police say Pastor John Rose agreed to take the sign down after being spoken to by officers.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said: “Norfolk Constabulary received a report regarding a poster outside a church which was deemed offensive by the complainant.

“National guidance required us to investigate the circumstances and the matter has been recorded as a hate incident.”

The Rev Simon Ward, of the Diocese of Norwich, said: “I guess they are trying to open a conversation and cause people to think.

“However, I think there are more positive conversations that you could have and more positive reasons for coming to church.”

Nazi salute before Jewish Student Knocked Unconscious, Mouth Stapled Shut, In Alleged Hate Crime

Posted in Anti-Semitism, Hate Crimes, Hitler, Nazi with tags , , , , , , , on August 28, 2012 by saynsumthn

EAST LANSING (WWJ) – A Michigan State University student is recovering after he was beaten up and had his mouth stapled shut during what investigators are categorizing as a brutal hate crime.

Zachary Tennen, a 19-year-old sophomore in MSU’s journalism program, said he was at a house party on the 500 block of Spartan Avenue early Sunday morning when two men approached him and asked if he was Jewish. When he responded “Yes,” the two men raised their arms into a Nazi salute and said “Heil Hitler” before knocking him unconscious, according to Tennen’s mother, Tina.

About 20 people reportedly watched as the men proceeded to staple Zachary Tennen’s mouth shut at the lips and gums. His jaw was broken in two places during the attack.

“They knocked me down really hard … and I assumed someone would help me,” Zachary Tennen said in a statement. “But after some guys at the house basically kicked me out, I had to get a cab.”

Tina Tennen told the Detroit Free Press her son took a cab to Sparrow Hospital in East Lansing for initial treatment, but underwent surgery in metro Detroit Monday night to have his jaw wired shut. He is now recovering at his home in Franklin.

“It almost seemed like they tried to kill me, and to think about that in my brain, physically — it isn’t very pleasant,” Zachary Tennen told campus newspaper The State News.

Anti-Catholic Occupy Wall Street protesters take over Archdiocese building throw bricks and pipes called “Peaceful” by media

May 2, 2012

According to the SF Chronicle:

Hundreds of protesters took over a vacant building on Turk Street owned by the Archdiocese of San Francisco on Tuesday. One climbed to the roof, threw a brick that struck a man with a video camera standing in the swarm of police and demonstrators below.

Police arrested Jesse Nesbitt, 34, of San Francisco on suspicion of felony aggravated assault after he ran out the back of the two-story building at 888 Turk St. But they didn’t find another man who hurled metal pipes into from an adjacent rooftop.

The Occupy activists had marched from Market Street to the Western Addition on Tuesday afternoon, cutting through a chain link fence and surging into the church’s building at the corner of Turk and Gough streets.

Police Chief Greg Suhr said they appeared to be the same group – dressed in black and wearing masks – that had rampaged through the city’s Mission District on Monday night smashing windows. “As far as I’m concerned, they’re a gang of anarchists, the same as last night,” Suhr said.

As evening fell, police estimated that about 200 protesters remained holed up in the building, while dozens outside faced off with police in riot gear, shouting, “Pigs go home!”

Frustrated church officials said that Occupy protesters had already caused $25,000 in damage when they took over the building last month and smashed doors and dry wall.

“We are not the 1 percent. I don’t get it,” said George Wesolek, spokesman for the archdiocese. “I think it’s an indication of how confused the Occupy movement has become in terms of its goals and its focus.”
They let them pass

Last month, police let occupiers remain in the building overnight. On Tuesday, officers also let protesters enter the building and kept watch. After the brick- and pipe-throwing, hundreds of police gathered and erected metal barriers while shoving aside protesters who tried to stop them. Later, most officers left the scene, taking the barriers with them.

To remove the squatters, police said they needed a written request from the archdiocese, which they received by early evening. Protesters also occupied several church parking spaces earlier, serving lasagna, rice and salad to their compatriots.

“We are taking direct action to take it back into the hands of the people,” said one protester who appeared to be in his 20s, wore a scarf over his face and declined to give his name.

“The Catholic Church is one of the biggest landlords in the world, and there are millions of people around the world who don’t have homes,” the man said. “People have the right to utilize any vacant building.”

In 2010, nearby Sacred Heart Cathedral High was using the church-owned building for music classes, church officials said last month.
New uses for building

But church officials said they are deciding whether to lease it out and use the money to help low-income students pay tuition.

Protesters who think the building is unused “are vandalizing our building,” Wesolek said. “It’s not their property.”

On April 2, police arrested nearly 80 people who had entered the building and had remained overnight.

On Tuesday, in addition to arresting Nesbitt, police cited and released Adam Delia, 24, for disobeying a traffic officer after he walked onto Turk Street to pick up a piece of one of the bricks thrown from the roof. About a dozen officers remained at the building into the night.

Suspect claims he attacked white teen because he was angry over Trayvon case, police say

IN CHICAGO – An black 18-year-old suspected of a violent attack on a white teen told Chicago police the beating was motivated by his anger over the Trayvon Martin case in Florida, MyFoxChicago reports.

Alton Hayes III was charged with a hate crime after he and a 15-year-old attacked the 19-year-old man at about 1:00 a.m. on April 17 in Oak Park, a Chicago suburb.

Police say Hayes and his teenage partner, who has not been named since he is a juvenile, picked the man apparently at random and pinned his arms to the side.

Hayes allegedly then picked up a tree branch and demanded the victim give them his belongings, saying, “Empty your pockets, white boy.”

The suspects then rifled through the victim’s pockets, threw him to the ground and punched him numerous times in the head and back. Both suspects are black and the victim is white, according to police.

MyFoxChicago reports Hayes told police he decided to attack his victim because he is angry over the death of Trayvon Martin. Hayes said he chose his victim because he is white.

Hayes was charged with attempted robbery, aggravated battery and a hate crime, all felonies. His teenage comrade was referred to juvenile court.

Trayvon Martin, 17, is the unarmed black teenager who was fatally shot as he walked through a gated community in Sanford, Fla. on Feb. 26. George Zimmerman, who has been charged with second-degree murder, went into hiding Monday as he awaits trial.

Emotions have run high across the US over the incident, in large part because six weeks passed before Zimmerman was charged — leading many African-American community leaders to decry what they perceived as racism in the justice system.

On Saturday night, a white man was beaten by a throng of African-Americans in Mobile, Ala., after telling a group of children to stop playing basketball in the middle of a street — with one witness claiming she heard an assailant exclaim, “Now that’s justice for Trayvon,” WKRG -TV reported.

However, the Mobile Police Department said the assault on Matthew Owens, 40, was not being investigated as a hate crime.

Violent Pro-choicer throws rock through the window of Pro-Life Leader, Joe Scheidler’s home

Joe and Anne Scheidler founded the Chicago anti-abortion organization- Pro-Life Action League. they have been involved in pro-life work for many years, and have recently been staging pickets in front of one of Planned Parenthood’s mega centers in Aurora . Ill. Joe Scheidler was called the Green Beret of the pro-life movement by syndicated columnist Patrick Buchanan. His book on his methods of fighting abortion, CLOSED: 99 Ways to Stop Abortion, was updated in 1993, and he has produced the videos Meet the Abortion Providers and Abortion: The Inside Story, featuring former abortionists who are now telling the truth about what goes on in the abortion clinics.

According Eric Scheidler, Joe’s son, “Bricks were thrown through the front windows of my parents’ house in Chicago last night at 2 a.m., with a pro-abort note attached to one.
Is pro-choice violence on the rise?”
just coincidence?” He went on to state, “Last night the Illinois Choice Action Team (state NARAL chapter) held a “clinic escort” training on Chicago’s north side. A few hours late, bricks are thrown through my parents’ windows a few miles away….Let me clarify that I’m not accusing the Illinois Choice Action Team of anything. I can’t imagine their leader, Benita, of doing anything like this or being anything but horrified by it. But I wouldn’t be surprised if someone who attended the meeting got all fired up and decided to raise some hell.”

Here’s the note that came through the window with a chunk of asphalt. It reads (unedited):

We are crazy feminist bitches
who will destroy your sexist
…ideas

[modified anarchy symbol]

P.S. I’ve had an
Abortion and no
laws would ever stop
me You can’t make
Queen Anne’s lace illegal
Asshole

According to Eric, “The “no laws could ever stop me” seems redundant, what with the anti-vandalism laws having been ignored. BTW, seeds from Queen Anne’s lace are supposed to be contraceptive (possibly even abortifacient).”

Joe is unavailable as he said he is dealing with police and reporting the incident !

Operation Rescue issued this statement:

Operation Rescue was outraged to learn this morning that the home of long-time pro-life leader Joseph Scheidler was attacked in the middle of the night with bricks of asphalt being thrown through two front windows. One of the bricks contained a threatening note from an obvious abortion supporter bearing a message of hate. The attack occurred around 2:00 A.M.

We denounce in the strongest terms the cowardly violence that shattered the peace of the Scheidler home last night,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We demand that that Attorney General Eric Holder order the Justice Department to launch an immediate investigation into this violent hate crime and to provide the same protections to Joseph and Ann Scheidler as they have in the past for unthreatened abortionists.”

There has been a recent increase in violence against peaceful pro-lifers. In September, 2009, activist Jim Pouillon was brutally murdered as he stood with a pro-life sign in front of a high school in Owosso, Michigan. Operation Rescue’s headquarters in Wichita, Kansas, has been repeatedly vandalized, and staff threatened in recent months. In Albuquerque, New Mexico, sidewalk counselors were threatened by a man at gunpoint and police later discovered a cache of weapons in the man’s vehicle.

Joe and Ann Scheidler are pioneers in the pro-life movement whose knowledge and experience has benefitted everyone who has ever taken a stand for the lives of the pre-born,” said Newman. “Please join Operation Rescue in sending a special Christmas gift to the Scheidler’s today as a show of support and to help defray the cost of repairing the damage to their home.”

Cards and letters can be sent to:

Joe and Ann Scheidler
Pro-Life Action League
6160 N. Cicero Ave.
Chicago, IL 60646

Eric Scheidler has also requested prayer for this person, stating,”pray for the angry woman who smashed out my parents’ windows in the middle of the night in an act of pro-choice violence. Please pray that she will somehow find healing and hope. And please pray that every pro-lifer she meets will treat her with the kind of respect and attentive compassion that she deserves, so she will know that she is loved.”

2 charged with hate crime in beating of teen

Two men are accused of committing a hate crime in the robbery and beating of a Seattle teen.

The Associated Press

SEATTLE —Two men are accused of committing a hate crime in the robbery and beating of a Seattle teen.

Ahmed Mohamed and Jonathan Baquiring have each been charged with first-degree robbery and malicious harassment, the state’s hate crime statute. Baquiring was arrested Tuesday evening; police are looking for Mohamed.

According to court documents filed this week in King County Superior Court, 16-year-old Shane McClellan says he was walking home from a party early on May 25 when two men asked him for a light. He told police the two robbed him and beat him for four hours, whipping him with his own belt. According to a police report, the two men, one black and one Filipino, made comments like, “How do you like it, white boy?” and “This is for enslaving our people.” McClellan is white.

Court papers say a police officer later encountered two men with dried blood on their hands and took samples. The state crime lab recently reported the blood matched McClellan’s DNA.
