Murder of David Rosenzweig

Reader comment on item: Terror & Denial [by Hadayat at LAX]

Submitted by Carey Stronach (United States), Jul 19, 2002 at 13:15

Expanding on Alan Mymin's cogent comments on the murder of David Rosenszweig in Toronto July 13/14, the following question should be asked: Why would a skinhead go to a kosher restaurant late at night in a quiet mostly-Jewish neighborhood in metro Toronto, if not to create murder and mayhem?

The Toronto police say they don't think it classifies as a hate crime because (1) the skinhead, Christian McBride, didn't make any anti-Semitic remarks (he didn't say anything), and (2) he has a black girl friend (and so does Louis Farrakhan, for that matter).

I was in Vancouver at the time. The CBC gave this case a lot of coverage, but quickly jumped on the police statement that they had no evidence that this was a hate crime. The Globe and Mail and (especially) The National Post did interpret it as a hate crime and pulled no punches.

No; the police statement is just another example of a politically-correct coverup.
