Time to rethink harsh sentencing in mosque bacon case

Man applies bacon to mosque.

It’s one thing to punish an offender for committing a crime. It’s another thing to destroy a human being.

A Titusville man was sentenced to prison for committing a hate crime against an Islamic mosque. He broke windows and vandalized lighting systems before leaving a slab of bacon in the premises. He certainly deserved punishment. But did he deserve 15 years in prison? Would not a one-year sentence for the same property crime accomplish the desired result?

    The 15 year sentence was to give the islamists in the prison time to arrange a death for him.

    The courts see these insane court rullings as a way of showing anyone who speaks out who is really in charge.

      The 15-years was a warning to the rest of the proles not to get any big ideas about resisting their incoming masters.

        The 15 years may be a death sentence for the spouses of the Brevard County Sheriff’s officers who played Thugs with Guns.

    Only a cognitively impaired person would describe the placing of “bacon” in a mosque, as a “hate crime”. Yes, it is a gesture of disrespect to a religious community and naturally should be sanctioned. But “hate crime” and fifteen years? Why not cutting this guy’s head off, if you want to please the crazies?

    So when muslims slaughter people of behead a co-worker m THAT’S a mental illness because islam is a religion of peace and no muslims would kill anyone so it must be mental illness.
    It’s not a crime when muslims do it. We lower the moral bar for them as 10th century savages that can’t be expected to live in our 21st century .

    If i was a muslim it would be insulting….but the silence is either from stupidity or a ruse to wear their terrorism as badge of honour .
    Imagine the Courts that deal with a murder case and the man is obese and gets Probation because obese people can’t help them self. Next is short people , the under weight people , red heads , brown people and so on until nobody goes to jail for murder.

      Small quibble: they’re actually 7th century savages.

    It was vandalism and/or mischief. Depending on the past history of the accused, the sentence should probably have been a fine and probation. Declaring this a hate crime is abusive prosecution.

    The stench is overwhelming. And the “Legal” system and their “Law Enforcement” enablers are soon to find out the consequences for spitting on Rule of Law.

    There is only one way to describe it. Michael Wolfe is a political prisoner. This puts us at the same moral level as the Soviets or the Chicom.

    15 years for baconizing a mosque seems fair. After all when ISIS fighters return to Canada they are subjected to rigorous poetry therapy.

  • Tooth&Claw

    It’s no worse or better than graffiti on a business’ premises. That the legal system found fit to persecute this man for expressing his opinion in a non violent and non materially damaging manner is an indictment of the legal system and disproportionate and malicious prosecution of a misdemeanor.

  • Hard Little Machine

    As long as we send all the Muslims who deface their own mosques and the black men who deface their own churches to prison for the same sentence then fine.

    Please tell me this travesty is being appealed.

  • canminuteman

    A one year sentence wouldn’t send the message that Muslims are our new overlords.

    Is this a waste of good bacon…no sure!!!
