Explosion at interracial couple's home treated as hate crime after swastika painted on garage

Explosion at interracial couple's home treated as hate crime after swastika painted on garageAn explosion which destroyed the home of an interracial couple after a swastika and a racial slur were found painted on the garage, is being investigated by the FBI.The suspected arson attack on the house of Brad and Angela Frase in the township of Sterling in Wayne County, Ohio, as a hate crime, investigators said. Police were called to the scene by a neighbour who reported a blast and fire at the building in the early hours of Wednesday morning. Firefighters managed to extinguish the flames but the house – which was not occupied at the time – was severely damaged.“What makes this case worse is that it appears that this case was racially motivated,” said captain Doug Hunter, of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office. “The couple that lived in the home – a white man and a black woman – lived there for many years without any type of problems but when the fire was set the perpetrators felt the need to write racial slurs on a nearby garage.”A video taken by police at the scene showed an attempt at the n-word and a swastika daubed on a garage next to the smoking remains of the house.Racial slurs were also found painted on several vehicles parked nearby, according to the Ohio fire marshal.Ms Frase told the local ABC 5 News channel that she hoped the people responsible were caught.“It’s sickening to do this to somebody’s home and not even know if they’re home or not,” she said. “We could’ve been in there.”Ms Frase and her husband were not living at the house at the time because repairs were being carried out following an electrical fire a month earlier.The day before the explosion, the repair company alerted the gas company to the smell of natural gas inside the property.Engineers discovered one of the burners on a stove had been left on but the pilot light was not lit, and the meter was removed to prevent further leaks.A $ 5,000 (£4,100) reward is being offered for information about the attack.“We are going to spare no expense when it comes to calling in resources to track down individuals that are accountable for this crime,” said captain Doug Hunter. "It is totally out of character for Wayne County to have racial crimes like this, yes they have happened in the past but only a couple of times as far as I am aware.”

Trump: All El Paso shooting patients being treated at hospital 'refused to meet with president'

Trump: All El Paso shooting patients being treated at hospital 'refused to meet with president'Every El Paso mass shooting patient being treated at a local hospital refused to meet with Donald Trump when he visited, a spokesperson for the facility has said. The US president on Wednesday travelled to both the Texas city and Dayton, Ohio, to meet with victims and first responders following two mass shootings over the weekend which left 31 people dead and dozens injured. But following Mr Trump's departure from University Medical Center (UMC), where he met two victims already discharged by the hospital, UMC spokesperson Ryan Mielke revealed the eight patients still being treated there did not agree to meet the US leader. "This is a very sensitive time in their lives," Mr Mielke told The Washington Post. "Some of them said they didn't want to meet with the president. Some of them didn't want any visitors."The newspaper reported some of the victims did, however, meet a number of locally elected officials, including Democratic congresswoman Veronica Escobar.Mr Trump’s arrival in El Paso was met with opposition by some of the city’s elected officials and thousands of its residents, who have accused the 73-year-old of using inflammatory rhetoric and encouraging white supremacy – a racist ideology allegedly espoused by the gunman who attacked shoppers at a local Walmart. Beto O’Rourke, a Democratic 2020 presidential contender and El Paso native who has denounced Mr Trump as a racist instigator, said the president had “helped create the hatred that made Saturday’s tragedy possible” and thus “has no place here”.Protesters booed Mr Trump as he and the first lady were driven to meet the survivors and first responders at the hospital, outnumbering the president’s supporters who cheered his motorcade.Mr Trump was, however, praised by Sherrod Brown, a Democratic senator for Ohio, who said the president was “comforting” and “did the right things” during his meeting with Dayton shooting victims. Despite being cast by some as the “consoler-in-chief”, Mr Trump used his flight time on the way back to the White House to attack his critics and boast on Twitter about how shooting victims had shown him “love, respect & enthusiasm”. “Leaving El Paso for the White House. What GREAT people I met there and in Dayton, Ohio,” Mr Trump tweeted. “The Fake News worked overtime trying to disparage me and the two trips, but it just didn’t work. The love, respect & enthusiasm were there for all to see. They have been through so much. Sad!”

US teenager detained at border lost 26 pounds in a month: 'It was inhumane how they treated us'

US teenager detained at border lost 26 pounds in a month: 'It was inhumane how they treated us'A US teenager who was detained by border agents for nearly a month, has detailed bleak conditions during his stay, saying: “They were not treating us humanely.”Francisco Galicia, who was born in Texas, was detained at a customs and border agency (CBP) checkpoint in Falfurrias, Texas on June 27 while travelling with his brother Marlon, a 17-year-old who was born in Mexico, who was also detained. After two days of detention, Marlon signed a voluntary deportation form and was released to his grandmother. Francisco, who was finally released this week, said he almost did the same thing. “It was inhumane how they treated us,” he told the Dallas Morning News. “It got to the point where I was ready to sign a deportation paper just to not be suffering there anymore. I just needed to get out of there.”Francisco, 18, lost 26 pounds during the 23 days he was detained at the CBP facility due to lack of food. He was not allowed to shower for the duration of his stay, but was given a shower once he was moved to an immigration enforcement agency (ICE) facility. “It was to clean up but the dirt, but you couldn’t get rid of it because so much time had passed since we showered,” he said.He and 60 other men were held in an overcrowded holding area where they slept on the floor; some were forced to sleep on the restroom area’s floor. They were given only aluminium foil blankets.Francisco said ticks bit some of the men. Some were also “very sick”, he said, but afraid to ask for a doctor, since CBP officers told them their stay would start over if they did.“It’s one thing to see these conditions on TV and in the news,” he said. “It’s another to go through them.”The horrifying saga began when officers at the Falfurrias checkpoint questioned his citizenship status. The teenager also had a Mexican tourist visa his mother had obtained for him when he was a minor and she feared she would not be able to legally travel across the border with him.But Francisco says the officers sounded the validity of his identification documents even before knowing that. “I told them we had rights and asked to make a phone call. But they told us, ‘You don’t have rights to anything,’” he told CNN. “They didn’t believe me. I kept telling them over and over, and they kept saying my documents were fake, and they were going to deport me.They threatened me with charges – charges about falsifying documents. Felonies. They kept asking how it was possible for me to not know where I was from.“Powerless. That’s how I felt,” he continued. “How with all this proof that I was giving them could they hold me?” Now, he wants to use his experience to shed light on the sordid conditions enacted by the Trump administration in the camps. “Right now, I’m in a place where I can help those who are still in there – so people can see how they’re treated, and change the way they’re treated,” he said. “I am the eyes and ears of what’s happening in there. I can talk. They can’t do what I’m doing.”

Man wears blackface in court then launches bizarre rant about being ‘treated like a black man’

Man wears blackface in court then launches bizarre rant about being ‘treated like a black man’A man who was recently convicted in a violent road rage incident turned up to court with a blacked up face for his sentencing hearing before delivering a bizarre racially-charged rant.Mark Char, who is not black, claimed he was wearing blackface because he was being “treated like a black man” by the court in Honolulu, Hawaii. He was found guilty of attempted murder and assault in March over a triple stabbing in a road rage confrontation.One victim was knifed five times and taken to hospital in a critical condition after the attack, which Char claimed was in self-defence.At his sentencing hearing, Char hit out at his lawyer, who he said was “incompetent”. He said: “Now this kangaroo court is trying to give me a life sentence for me trying to protect and defend myself against the attack from three guys ― in essence, treating me like a black man.“And today, the reason why I’m like this is because I prepared myself to play my part in your kangaroo court, treating me like a black man, so today I’m going to be a black man.”Char is thought to have used a black-coloured permanent marker to darken his face, according to local media.Despite his unusual behaviour, state documents showed the court was satisfied that he had understood the proceedings of the trial and was fit to be sentenced.His appearance drew strong criticism from Judge Todd Eddins, who later sentenced him to life in prison with the possibility of parole.“This continues a pattern of disruptive behaviour designed to undermine the administration of justice,” he said.He added: “What you need to do is look in the mirror. And if you look in the mirror, Mr Char, you’re not going to see a black person, you’re going to see a menace to society.”
