Hate Crime Hits Close to a Blogger’s Home
Posted by Jack Stephens on July 11, 2007
The area around Sacramento has become sort of a haven for violent hate groups in the past decade or so. There are several white pride and anti-gay groups, and even some anti-Semitic groups (one fire-bombed five synagogues a few years ago), and they’re getting more violent lately, less secretive about their prejudices.
And now a young man my age, a nice guy who was trying to make a good life for himself, is dead because people have just ignored them, or worse, because they secretly agree. And the Russian community is hiding them, and the police will only charge them with involuntary manslaughter and resisting arrest if they are caught.
