Brooklyn: Turns out Muslim teens beaten outside mosque may have sexually assaulted man’s girlfriend
The case of two Muslim teens who were beaten to a pulp outside a Brooklyn mosque was originally investigated as a hate crime. But now Brooklyn’s DA office is investigating the possibility that the boys may have sexually assaulted the man’s (Christopher Vallaro) girlfriend, before he came to her rescue.
While the investigation is ongoing, fake hate crimes have long been big in the “Islamophobia” business: Robert Spencer wrote about 2014’s top anti-Muslim hate crime hoaxes, and the mass media is always in a hurry to jump to report them without any evidence.
Vallaro’s defense attorney said he’s “glad that the District Attorney’s office is taking a look at the entirety of the situation, and not just what the alleged victims said happened”. Shouldn’t all law-abiding citizens be glad? It is absurd that a hate crime was immediately assumed to have taken place on the word of the two Muslim victims before any investigation.
