Cops investigate possible hate crime aga…
I think there must be more to the story than was reported because the head of the hate crimes unit spent the morning at the condominium where it happened, as did the head of a local Muslim advocacy group.
The woman who lives in the condo on Overlook Drive says she went out for a walk this morning and when she returned the house was ransacked and $200 was taken, 1010 WINS’ Mona Rivera reports.
Police would not say if the couple had been targeted due to their religious beliefs, however head of the Hate Crimes Unit was on the scene. Police would not say, at this point, if they believe it was a hate crime.
The head of the Long Island Muslim Alliance was also on the scene and said he was concerned this incident could be backlash from the Fort Hood shooting rampage.
A second story that also said ‘a hate crime was being investigated’ says there was graffiti. I infer that there was something about the graffiti that indicated the elderly couple was targeted because they were Muslims and/or in relation to the Fort Hood attack.
