Bacon Scattered Before Muslim Celebration May Be Bias Crime

Hmmm…the title says “may be,” I say “most likely.”

Bacon Scattered Before Muslim Celebration May Be Bias Crime

 

By ERIC P. NEWCOMER (NYTimes)

 

As the first of an estimated 1,500 Muslims began to arrive at Cpl. Allan E. Kivlehan Park in New Dorp, Staten Island, early Sunday morning to celebrated Id al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan, they discovered uncooked bacon scattered on the ground.

The New York Police Department is investigating the incident as a possible bias crime.

Muslims do not eat pork products. Pig parts have been used in other instances to taunt Muslims, according to a statement by the Council on American-Islamic Relations of New York.

The police said they did not know how much bacon had been placed on the ground. The incident was reported Sunday by the Staten Island Advance.

    @Slevdi, what do you know about savagery? If you don’t want savagery don’t kill/eat an animal period. The modern method of stunning an animal before slaughtering is savagery as the animal feels pain and a slow death whereas the halal method its done swiftly.

    @drm – meat sold as a by-product of animal sacrifice such as halal or kosher meat isn’t marked in European countries. This has been a major issue in the UK where supermarkets buy halal killed meat but don’t mark it as killed by animal sacrifice.

    If you object to my term ‘animal sacrifice’ allow me my right to say that any animal killed in the name of religion with a prayer is just that. It is a barbaric piece of savagery the modern world should leave firmly in the middle ages.

    @ KB
    The guy who placed it there did so by his own admission to feed the soon to be rotten meat to park animals. Are you suggesting it is logical to ship rotting meat to needy children around the world?
    Sheer brilliance KB, I suggest you be the one to lead this endeavor. Get a clue.

    Yeah, with all the children starving around the world it would be a fantastic idea to waste bacon to childishly taunt a group of people that don’t eat pork.

    Because screw logic.

    “Steve… halal meat is marked… look at the wrapper, it is ALWAYS marked, just as kosher meat is marked.”

    That’s exactly what I told this troll several times before but he seems unable to ditch his ideological atheist blinders. Don’t expect much from EDL wannabe.

    Steve… halal meat is marked… look at the wrapper, it is ALWAYS marked, just as kosher meat is marked.
