If it weren't in such poor taste, it would be hilarious; the act wasn't funny, the irony is...now you know how minorities feel. It is always interesting to watch when two subsets of the ruling majority in America clash; only then does a portion of white America show its huffed outrage. How the smearing of feces and drawing of swastikas on another persons property can be classified as a harmless 'prank' is totally incomprehensible...until you investigate the race of the perpetrators, then it all makes sense. If the person who committed this act had been Black, he would have been thrown in jail with no bail,promptly sentenced to several years in jail and uniting the white/jewish factions (oftentimes one and the same) in the community, satisfying the racist bloodlust and abating the self-serving pompous self-righteousness which masquerades as justice in America. This is not errant race-baiting. We all know this is the truth and the statistics are there to prove it, otherwise why do Blacks make up 12% of the population in America but consist of fully 60% of all incarcerated federal prisoners in the U.S of A? Wow, they must be really, really bad people...or so a certain segment of our population would have you believe; but do people really care?

The selective, prejudiced and disproportionate application of America's justice system never ceases to amaze me. The only thing which surprises me more is how the corrupt (or stupid, blind or simply racist) officials, implementors of the system really believe that the average citizen will not notice, or perhaps more appropriately, do not have the power to do anything about it but protest for a bit, talk a lot before going back to the dreary 9-to-5 business of creating yet more illicit wealth in this lopsided society for the very idiots who make these disproportionate laws. In drug cases federal sentencing guidelines allow judges to sentence people to different sentences (based basically on race since drug using, poor minorities are mostly arrested for a derivative of cocaine, crack cocaine, while drug using whites are mostly associated with the purchase of powder cocaine (see Lindsay Lohan)- same drug, same quantity- vastly different sentences). While whites are typically given probation, community service and suspended sentences, minorities are given a 'mandatory' minimum of five years. I don't get it..how does a sentence become mandatory when the sentencing itself is supposed to be at the judges discretion?

America is fueled by inequality, hatred, racism and selective enforcement of laws and vindictive incarceration.
It should be a crime NOT to fairly prosecute crimes; perhaps this would change the way business is being conducted now. There should be a federal standard which MUST be implemented and adhered to in every crime (as well as housing, health, benefits, promotions, jobs, zoning laws, construction of places of worship, political appointments, business, loans, the entertainment industry and EVERY aspect of AMERICAN life) but we all know this will never happen. What we've learnt here is that girls do throw poo...

P.S. btw Hispanic teenager Ralph Mirabal was sentenced to 8 years in prison for graffiti tagging in Texas in 2009 by Judge Sandra Watts...you do the math. This is America
