The overwhelming amount of hate crimes I see growing on a daily basis is sickening. The majority of hate crimes I see are against Muslims. Again, I blame these hate crimes on the rhetoric from this election.
Here are Some Recent Ones:
Woman Attacks Two Muslim Sisters Walking with a Baby
Thursday September 8th, a New York City woman, Emirjeta Xhelili, attacked two Muslim women who were pushing their young children in strollers and tried to rip off one woman’s hijab.
Court documents say Xhelili approached the women near her home in Brooklyn, Thursday afternoon, where she punched one of them in the head, screamed racial slurs and told them to leave America. In addition, Xhelili pushed one of the woman’s strollers toward the ground and tried to take the second woman’s stroller.
The charges Xhelili faces are assault, menacing and endangering the welfare of a child. The Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office described the incident as a hate crime.
Xhelili is being held on $50,000 bond or $25,000 cash bail.
