Windsor Muslims pen letter asking police why Islamic-themed graffiti is not a hate crime

Hate crime charges are still possible in connection with a spree of Islamic-themed graffiti sprayed across Windsor, according to police.

A 49-year-old man was arrested in December and charged with 16 counts of mischief for allegedly painting messages, including the words “Sharia now” and “Islam executes drug dealers” at bus shelters and on the windows of CBC and other media organizations across the city.

The “Islamic themed” graffiti was “pro-Islam” in so far as it’s possible to say anything remotely positive about the cult.

Not answered – was the perp an idiot convert?

    So was the graffiti written on the Christian church in Hamilton, that some muslim tried to burn down a hate crime? Or the numerous other incidents of Christian churches in Canada being vandalized a hate crime? Or mosques in Canada calling for the death of the filthy Jews and Christians a hate crime? Or should we believe people like Bernie Farber in the Toronto Star, that Islamophobia is running rampant in Canada, and evangelical Christians are to blame?

    Graffiti is a property crime. Defacement. Often non permanent and fixable. Hatred is a feeling. Stop criminalizing feelings.

    According to the article it says “hate crimes are still possible”. Well let me guess. The only reason hate crime charges haven’t been levied yet is because they haven’t found out if the clown who did this is a Muslim or not and the authorities don’t want to accidentally embarrass our newest immigrants by charging one of their own.
