Legislature candidate supports Hate Crime charges for vandalism at mosque

Posted 10 September 2015 at 12:00 am


Just recently I had a letter to the editor published expressing my disappointment with how law enforcement leaders handled the situation at the local mosque.

Now I would like to say that I applaud our law enforcement officials for bringing the Hate Crime charges against the individuals for the terrible acts that they committed. I believe that these charges are appropriate and send the message that these crimes will not be tolerated in our community.

I hope to see the individuals convicted and I also hope to see the World Sufi Foundation and their community grow stronger in the face of adversity, as they have done many times before.

To our law enforcement leaders – thank you for sending a message.

To the World Sufi Foundation – keep being great!
