3 suspects in mosque vandalism should have been charged before weekend

I am a huge supporter of law enforcement. But the Orleans County Sheriff’s Department should be ashamed of themselves! The three individuals who perpetrated the cross burning in Carlton should have been in jail! Not out enjoying a nice long weekend.

This is a HATE CRIME, not some redneck hillbilly boys-will-be-boys issue. Whoever came up with this decision should be terminated immediately because they obviously don’t take the safety of our citizens seriously.

No one regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or preference should have to live in fear. To allow this with no or little consequences shows little or no respect for victims. Shame on whoever made this decision.
