NYPD Says Beating Of Muslim Teens Outside Of Mosque Is Not A Hate Crime
Two muslim teens were brutally beaten outside of a Muslim mosque as their attacker shouted slurs and called them terrorist, but somehow, the NYPD REFUSES to acknowledge that this was a hate crime.
The attack early on Sunday was at least the third involving Muslims in the United States over the weekend. A law enforcement source said investigators had ruled out the incident as a bias crime.
The New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, said in a statement that a 16-year-old boy was attacked outside Brooklyn’s Muslim Community Center as he took a break from prayers.
A surveillance video released by CAIR showed a man punching, kicking and stomping the youth as he lay in the street. Another teenager on a bicycle was chased and attacked when he rode past the boy.
CAIR said the man was reportedly heard shouting: “You Muslims are the cause of all the problems of the world” and calling the youths “terrorists.”
As for why the cops won’t label this a hate crime…
The law enforcement source said the police hate crimes unit had rejected the incident as a bias crime. He said the two youths were harassing a 40-year-old woman in a car and her 37-year-old boyfriend assaulted them.
Surprise, surprise, the NYPD doesn’t want to acknowledge the bias involved in a violent crime against muslim people. We can’t BELIEVE that an upstanding and morally incorruptible organization such as the NYPD would commit such and egregious error…..
