Three San Diego men, Sean Arevalo, Terrance Crow, and Scott Peretti, are alleged to have “beat down” a young Somalian refugee with a chair and brass knuckles in the “Zappy Pizza” take-out shop at 5971 University Ave in San Diego. The three Americans were charged with felony battery with a deadly weapon and a hate crime. The penalty could be several years in prison. This occurred on October 30, 2016, just a week before the election. This prosecution seems to be motivated by politics. We have a La Raza Assistant DA, who was looking to nail someone on a hate-crime charge, so it can be used for propaganda purposes before and after the election. Many Trump opponents were eagerly looking for hate crimes among Trump supporters at that time, which they could trumpet just before the election.
Note: The preliminary trial date is the following. Please attend, if possible. We need to fill the courtroom to overflowing. The evidence against them will be presented.

San Diego media outlets have already convicted them, conducting a shameless media lynching. The story was syndicated by the Associated Press and has been published by other media outlets all around the nation, with very little effort by the media to get the other side of the story. Here are some of the slanderous, early media reports.
Police call attack on Somali man a hate crime by San Diego Union-Tribune

Here is an audio recording that this blogger made of an eye witness two days after the incident. This witness said that the news reports were “nonsense.”
Go to the original webpage to here audio.
There were no brass knuckles used or any other “deadly weapon” and the Somalian was not hit with a chair as the media slanderously portrayed the incident from only one side. An independent witness was not difficult to find. The incident started when two of the accused, Scott Peretti and Terrance Crow, were ordering take-out pizza at the counter. Crow declared “VOTE TRUMP” The Somalian refugee took offense at that and replied “FUCK TRUMP” In return, Crow said “FUCK ISLAM” Then, a mutual altercation started, a scuffle.
One Somalian moved on Peretti, who felt threatened and struck the Somalian with his bare fist in self defense, producing a minor wound. Peretti’s other friend, Terry Crow, did not hit anyone. Sean Arevalo was waiting in the car rushed in to break it up and get his friends out of there. Sean Arevalo had some car keys in his fist, but never hit the Somalian. The cloth lanyard attached to the keys wrapped around his fingers was apparently mistaken for brass knuckles. The keys were inside his fist.
One Somalian was only slightly injured and refused medical attention. The Somali, who was punched is the son of a politically influential leader in the Somali community, which reportedly numbers around 15-30K (potential voters) in San Diego.
There were no video cameras operating in the Pizza shop. The police did not arrive until the incident was long over. They arrested the three Americans based only on the version of the story of the Somalian. The three men were arraigned on November 7th in Superior Court charged with felony battery with a hate crime add-on. There was no deadly weapon. Supporting Trump for the presidency should not be classified as a hate crime. Expressing disapproval of Islam is free speech, protected by the Constitution. Americans have every right to disapprove of a inherently theocratic religion founded by a “prophet,” who was a mass murderer, sex-slave monger and child molester.
They have “multi-cultural policing” in this area of San Diego, where many refugees reside. However, It is not the duty of the police to enforce Sharia law in the area, which is called “Little Mogadishu.” Expressing opposition to Islam is not a felony hate crime. The charges against these three Americans should be promptly dismissed. They have already suffered too much abuse at the hands of an overzealous District Attorney, politically-correct police and the sensationalist media for their politically-incorrect opinions.
Hate crimes are “thought crimes,” which are Orwellian in nature, intended to be applied only to certain segments of society to punish them for historic events, for which the current generation had no responsibility. But that is beside the point in this case. These three men went into the shop just to order a pizza, not with the intention of committing a “hate crime.” The scuffle resulted from a mutual verbal altercation.
If Muslims want to live in America, they have to learn to accept free speech, even if it may be rude speech, without becoming violently enraged. The overly multi-cultural San Diego police ought to learn to uphold their oath of office, which requires them to defend our Constitutional rights, not to defend Islam.
The original defamatory story was blown out of all proportion by the media, and rapidly spread around the country. This was probably because it was election time and a supposed hate crime committed against a Muslim refugee plays well in the liberal media, who present it as a fact without doing any real journalistic investigation. An independent, disinterested witness to the incident called the media reporting “nonsense” and “irritating” that the media went into a feeding frenzy about something that “didn’t happen,” he said.
