NEW YORK - A 12-year-old boy, who has been accused of trying to rip the head scarf off of a Muslim classmate during recess, was arrested at school Wednesday on hate crime charges.

The boy is a sixth grader at the Dreyfus Intermediate School in Staten Island, N.Y. Police charged the boy as a juvenile, reports CBS station WCBS. Police and school officials say the boy has a history of harassing the girl, taunting her and threatening her on at least four separate occasions. The police report says he asked,

This used to be known as having a crush on a girl.

Kinda tough to pull her pigtails though.

Wow, imagine being a national hero at age 12.

Notice how they tell us nothing about the boy, and we are left to assume that he is a WASP.

Love this from the comments section (although it is probably bogus) :

Prime Minister John Howard - Australia

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.

Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote: 'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.'

'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom'

'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!'

'Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.'

'We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.'

'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom,

'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.'

'If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.'

Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves, American and Canadian citizens will find the backbone to start speaking and voicing the same truths.

If you agree ... please SEND THIS ON.

Too bad anti-AMERICAN acts aren't punished with the same vigor and enthusiasm.

The report said something about the girl suffering minor injuries, and that this boy had harrassed her more than once in the past.

It's definitely a matter for school level discipline, but if there were any documented injuries, I can see why charges may have been filed.
