Police investigate possible hate crime in Jewish New York neighborhood

Police are investigating what authorities say could be a hate crime in a Jewish section of Brooklyn, New York, after three cars were set ablaze and anti-Semitic graffiti was scrawled across park benches.

Police said they responded to emergency calls pertaining to the case early Friday morning.

The city's Hate Crimes Task Force is "actively investigating the twisted person or people who attacked cars, benches, and a sidewalk on a block of Ocean Parkway early this morning," New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said in a statement.

    If those who oppose a specific religion or group responds with violence, there argument is ultimately disregarded; seeing that they can't voice an intelligent opinion as to their stance!

      No, Tweety, CNN is censoring out well reasoned arguments that they don't want you to see, branding them as anti'semite.

      I think some (misspelling) is an attempt to get around the many many CNN censors (kissing ask of their money masters), that they call "moderation". Really their purpose is to keep you from understanding how a debt based money system is failing and why... so you cannot oppose them in any meaningful way.

    After President Obama Many people began to say that racism and hate no longer exists. This is a prime example that instead of disappearing it has become more prevalent.
