Red paint splashed on a sign at a mosque. Seems as if we are scraping the bottom of the barrel to find hate crimes these days. “Police Probe Report Of Vandalism At Mosque,” from the WBAL Channel, with thanks to Anthony:
The incident happened sometime between June 24 and 27 at the Masjid Al-Rahmah mosque, according to a police report. A nearby pole also was damaged.
Bill Toohey, a spokesman for Baltimore County police, said the sign has the words “Islamic Society of Baltimore” on it, and that the case was being investigated as a bias incident. The paint didn’t depict any words or symbols….
The Maryland and Virginia office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations called on local officials to look into the matter.
“As with any such incident at a house of worship, the possibility of a bias motive should be investigated,” said Shama Farooq, director of civil rights for the organization.
