“…being investigated as vandalism rather than a hate crime…”

A man suspected of shooting red paint at an Israeli flag on a major boulevard in Philadelphia was taken into custody Tuesday.

Laura Frank, an employee of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, said that she and her colleagues ran to the display of world flags after a friend called to tell them the Israeli flag was being vandalized.

    Vandalism is what it is, why up charge him.
    It’s legal to burn and desecrate the American flag but can’t shoot at an Israeli flag, with a paint gun, please
    I think the Israel’s were justified in shooting the mob Monday but special laws for them is bullshit.
    Que the nonsense……..

      If doing anything against islam is a hate crime, so should the same be true for Jews. Turnabout is fair play.

        “Should” being the operative word there.

        John Kerry ‘should’ be charged for violations of the Logan Act. Will he?

        I’m all in favor of holding Muslims feet to the fire, I think Isreal was perfectly justified in killing as many terrorist as possible when they act like they did Monday at the American Embassy opening. We should be doing the same thing at our borders.
        What I’m saying is if we are going to defend a flag, put special signifance to one then by god it should be ours and ours alone.
        Do we put special laws in place to protect the Norwegian flag, how about the Flag of Spain, France, etc, etc etc. No we don’t.
        Stop being bootlickers and ass kissers, stand up for our own damn country and we would be much better off than we are.

    Philadelphia where you can piss in the gender restroom of your choice and sit around in Starbucks with even buying a cup of their overpriced liquid shit and cause every Liberal asshole in the country to toss a nuclear spasm and scream racism, but desecrate a friendly country’s flag? Nope, nothing to see here folks. move along.

    No such thing as a hate crime. Totally made up bullshit.
    Punish the DEED not the Motivation.

    Make the idiot pay for all damages x10 + clean all toilets for a week at the Jewish facility that was defaced.
    AND buy the entire staff all the burritos thay can eat for that week.
