Several media outlets in San Diego published in the first week of November dubious articles about a assault with a deadly weapon (brass knuckles) and hate crime against a Somali refugee by three white men. The articles had no names, no photos of the victim or interviews with witnesses.
Muslim refugees are a protected class in Obama’s America, who have more rights than American citizens. The article was syndicated by the Associated Press and has gone nationwide. A minor scuffle with one of them can easily turn into felony battery and a hate crime with national attention.
3 Arrested in Attack on Muslim Man at San Diego Restaurant (Early Report)
This blogger went to the site and easily found a Hispanic witness to the alleged “hate crime,” who said that the media reports were “nonsense,” that they made a big deal out of nothing. Witness said the victim was talking “crap” to the three white guys and that he deserved what he got. The “kid,” as he called the Somali, was hit once on the side of the head. There were no brass knuckles and he was not hit with a chair, as news reports claimed. He just ran out after being hit once with a bare fist. The witness said the three whites were not arrested at the pizza shop, but somewhere else. The witness did not want to be identified by name.
The media were all over the place the day afterwards, but they did not report any interviews of witnesses, photos of the victim with wounds or anything.
Afterwards, I dropped by the SDPD HQ downtown. Dino Delimitross was the watch officer that day and just gave the media a description of what allegedly happened. However, the police didn’t see it — from what I have been told — and they have not had time to really investigate. As reported by NBC, video cameras in the Pizza store were also not operating. So, it would be just what the victim alleged happened in the report.
The officer at the desk looked up the charge for Sunday Oct 30 (afternoon):
PC 245 Assault with a deadly weapon (brass knuckles)
(A hate crime charge would be a add-on to that.)
5971 University Ave.
INC # 16100049703
Case # 16044681
San Diego is currently the number one area in the nation for refugee resettlement. One report says “a few” Somalians have resettled in the area of the attack. In reality, about 30,000 Somalians have been resettled in San Diego, the vast majority or Muslims as Obama seeks to fundamentally transform San Diego, one of the last areas of California where Americanism has not yet been snuffed out.
This area of the alleged attack is a Somali population center with many thousands of Somalians. The Somali settlement stretches from City Heights to Lemon Grove, a six-eight mile corridor along University Avenue. Around 40-50k impossible-to-adequately-vet Muslims from the Middle East and Africa are thought to have settled in San Diego in recent years. Since polls show that a considerable percentage of them will be ISIS supporters, this builds a considerable base of support for terrorism in the San Diego area.
The names of the three men charged were published by the media on or about November 3rd, Sean Arevalo, Terrance Crow, and Scott Peretti. They do not appear to be exactly saints. One of them, Sean Arevalo, was arrested in a SWAT stand-off a few years ago.

However, that does not mean they are guilty of the current charges as stated, especially given conflicting reports. They are scheduled to be arraigned in superior court D-12 in downtown San Diego at 1:30 pm on Monday, November 7.
Hate crimes are thought crimes and are selectively applied to certain groups. For these reasons hate crimes ought to be abolished. Crimes should be punished in the same way for everyone, no matter what your race or ethnicity. The law should be blind, not used to punish and intimidate certain groups collectively or protect certain groups collectively, as hate crimes are now used.
