NY Man Accused Of Threatening To Kill Muslim Woman

A New York man has been arrested for a hate crime against a Muslim woman and her child.

I'm posting about this crime against Muslims for a few reasons. Firstly, this sort of behavior is never appropriate, no matter the perceived offense. These crimes should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law no matter who commits such acts. Secondly, it gives the Islamists and their fellow travelers of the left ammunition to attack freedom of speech and so suppress the West's ability to inform people of the Islamic Jihad threat.

This sort of thing also encourages the enactment of hate crime legislation, which is used not by the average Joe, but by the Left and those attempting to shut down legitimate debate over the incursion of Islam into free societies. Existing legislation already covers deadly threats without the necessity for "hate crime" penalties.
