Deputies found graffiti in Hillsborough County at two different locations. One wall was hit along Gornto Lake Road in Brandon, with the phrase "kill white people" spray painted. Other tags read "black lives matter" and "BLM."
A crowd of people cheered tonight when the Sterling Heights, Michigan, planning commission voted 9-0 not to allow the building of a proposed mosque (videos below).
People outside the Sterling Heights City Hall yelled, “No more mosque!” and “God bless America!”
The 20,500 square-foot Islamic house of worship would have been in a residential area, which opponents claimed would cause too much traffic and could be linked to Islamic extremism, notes WXYZ.
Mosque leaders reportedly offered to downsize the building, but to no avail.
“I think it is more about ignorance,” Imam Mohammad Ali Elah, of the Islamic House of Wisdom, told FOX 2. “To be honest with you.”
As people in the crowd cheered and shook their fists, local Muslims told WXYZ:
Looks like Iraq, not USA.
I’m very offended that this happened.
Doesn’t seem like I’m in Sterling Heights, seem like I’m in Baghdad, that’s not right. I’m afraid too.
Sterling Heights Mayor Michael C. Taylor said in a statement:
Sterling Heights has a solid reputation for inclusiveness and tolerance reflected in a wide variety of places of worship across the City, including a Sikh Temple, a Buddhist Temple and two existing Mosques.
If you listen to eye witness accounts at the scene in El Cajon, where a black man was shot by police, many claim he had his hands up and was complying.
This is turning out to be a Michael Brown hoax all over again.
A still shot from a cell phone that shot the entire incident has been released and it clearly shows the black man, who was acting erratically, pointing something that looks like a gun at the police, just moments before they shot him.
An African girl by the name of Rumbie Mubaiwa live streamed from the location in El Cajon where a black man was killed by police yesterday.
During the streaming, she interviews the sister of the dead man and supposed eye witnesses to the shooting, all of which claimed they shot him for no reason at all, many claim racism.
At one point, near the start of this edited down version, Mubaiwa tells her Facebook followers to bring 'arsenals' to the scene so they can fire back at police.
An African-American man was shot in an encounter with El Cajon Police Tuesday, multiple witnesses said, while a woman wailed nearby, demanding to know why police shot her brother.
Hours later, police officers told NBC 7 San Diego the man was acting erratically and failed to comply, although they did not release details on the specific threat he presented to officers.
Dozens of officers swarmed a public shopping center in the heart of El Cajon at 1 p.m. The community is approximately 30 miles east of downtown San Diego.
One witness recalled seeing an officer fire five rounds. Another man said police fired on a man who had his hands out to his side. A manager inside a nearby restaurant said the suspect refused to remove his arms from his side. Police said witness video showed the man did not have his hands in the air.
Witnesses questioned the police motives in the shooting. Crowds gathering by the scene of the shooting began chanting, demanding answers from police.

BOSTON —The highest court in Massachusetts on Tuesday threw out a gun conviction against a Boston man in a ruling that says black men who flee when approached by police may be reacting to racial profiling rather than trying to hide criminal activity.
In its ruling, the Supreme Judicial Court found that Boston police had "far too little information" to stop Jimmy Warren after seeing him and another black man walking in Boston's Roxbury neighborhood about 30 minutes after they received a report of a home break-in in 2011.
Police had received only a vague description of three black males wearing dark clothing and hooded sweatshirts seen leaving the home. Warren ran when police approached him.
After a foot chase, an officer arrested him in a yard on Wakullah Street.
He was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm after a handgun was found on the front lawn.
A shocking video appears to show a father handing his daughter an AK-47 for her to fire, as she allegedly issues a warning to India. The footage, which was shared on Twitter , shows a young girl talking to the camera before cocking the rifle and shooting into the air. It comes as India's Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, asked Pakistani citizens to question their leaders about the progress of their nation. According to All India, the child issues a series of warnings to the PM, while her dad sits quietly behind her, apparently supporting her address. The video has been retweeted over 1,000 times since it was added to the social media site on September 23. Many viewers have slammed the footage, and called into question the father's parenting skills. One Twitter user wrote: "The new generation of Pakistan holds key to its future. Sad they are being poisoned." Another added: "Really crazy. Now this 5 or 6-year-old thinks this is a toy to play with and this can result in a tragedy later."

Hillary Clinton said “everyone” in the country is implicitly biased against African Americans during Monday night’s presidential debate.
Moderator Lester Holt prompted the response when he asked Clinton if she thought the police were implicitly biased against blacks.
“Lester, I think implicit bias is a problem for everyone, not just police,” she said. “I think, unfortunately, too many of us in our great country, um, jump to conclusions about each other, and therefore I think we need all of us to be asking hard questions about, you know, why am I feeling this way?”
“But when it comes to policing,” Clinton continued, “since it can have literally fatal consequences, I have said in my first budget we would put into that budget to help us deal with implicit bias by retraining a lot of our police officers.”
As part of the BBC's US election coverage, we've sent a team across the northern US by train to listen to voters' concerns. They start in Minnesota where, just this Saturday, a Somali-American man stabbed and injured nine people in what police say may be a possible terror attack. Much has been said about Muslims this election, and the apparent threat some people feel they pose, but how are Muslim Americans feeling ahead of the vote? Aleem Maqbool reports from Minneapolis.
Students from the University of Kansas’ Young America’s Foundation just learned the hard way that those who advocate for “safe spaces” and “trigger warnings” for themselves aren’t as courteous about other people’s feelings.
Thursday night, the University of Kansas YAF asked students who supported “safe spaces” to debate the topic, politely, with several young conservative KU YAF members. The event, called “Stand with Me” was in response to a video (and poem!) posted by transgender student Micha Cox, who claimed to have been harassed and berated as she was walking across campus.
YAF had anticipated some protests, but what they got was a complete meltdown, clearly inspired by Trigglypuff. A group of social justice warriors invaded the meeting, screaming obscenities, verbally abusing the YAF students, calling them “racist” and “white supremacist,” lecturing students about their “white privilege” and even berating the students for holding the event.
A girlfriend got revenge on her 'cheating boyfriend' - by tasering him in the crotch. Mandie Pistol, from Las Vegas, was filmed walking in on her boyfriend with another woman before using the taser gun on him. A video, which has been viewed over two million times, shows her claiming that she knows her boyfriend has been cheating on her for 'quite some time'. Mandie says: 'He doesn't know that I found out that he's been cheating on me for quite some time now. 'What he doesn't seem to remember is that he got me this taser for Christmas. F*** him.' Her friend can be heard gasping in the background before saying: 'Oh s***, oh s***, oh s***'. Mandie then gets out of the car and storms towards her boyfriend's house, before banging the door and letting herself in. After seeing her boyfriend on the sofa with another woman, she shouts: 'Who the f*** is she?' Her boyfriend replies: 'That's not my girl. That's not my girl!' Ignoring her boyfriend's protestations, Mandie tasers him in the groin. Although some social media users have suggested the video is 'fake', many have praised Mandie for her actions. Kira Dawn wrote 'Way to go Mandie', while Lydia Wolfe added: 'You go girl! I respect you!'
An estimated 40,000 Chinese, both legal residents and illegals, are living in the Italian town of Prato, not far from Florence. They constitute a quarter of the town's population and are one of the biggest concentrations of Chinese in Europe. Most come from one town in China, Wenzhou near Shanghai. Nearly all are involved in manufacturing textiles and cheap clothes on a huge scale - producing up to one million garments a day. In recent months, tensions in Prato between Italian residents and the Chinese have spiked with accusations that the migrants aren't playing by the rules. Henry Ridgwell visited this town in the heart of Tuscany confronting the reality of a globalized world.

We've saw the other videos showing women being cat called, Muslims being, well, treated perfectly fine on the streets of the USA (despite the woman in the video STILL claiming she 'heard comments'), and now we have Jews who are spat upon, berated, threatened, and insulted. This is the new Paris thanks to Muslim Migrants.
