Yep, they’ve gone and done it now! [sarcasm]
A Las Vegas mosque is the site of a possible “hate crime” investigation when a white male with a goatee, wearing a baseball cap, according to surveillance footage placed bacon on a door handle.
No kidding, federal authorities are investigating the incident as a possible hate crime.
Per local news reports:
In surveillance video of the incident, a man is seen stringing the raw bacon onto the doors and door handles.
Police are investigating the incident at Masjid Tawheed, the mosque located near Jones Boulevard and Twain Avenue, as a possible hate crime since pork or bacon are forbidden in Islam both to eat and touch.
The FBI is now investigating the incident as a possible hate crime.
One of the mosque’s founding members said fellow members are concerned about the crime and are calling it a “deliberate attack” on their religion.
“There are still people out there who love to hate, unfortunately, so this was one of the sad incidents and it’s unfortunate,” said Rokai Yusufzai.
Of all things that are crazy, mosque leaders themselves calling the incident a “deliberate attack” on their religion. Isn’t that ironic?
Watch the video report here:
Do you think they will ever catch the “bacon doorknob thief?” Will this perpetrator be placed on the list of America’s most wanted? It’s too soon to tell, but we’ll be watching the results.
