Framing the Victim

Reader comment on item: [Fake] "Islamophobic Prejudice" and CAIR
in response to reader comment: Some facts seem at odds with arson guilt

We have seen this before, where someone gets victimized as a result of a hate crime, and then gets accused of staging that crime. The examples are many, most notable is how Blacks in the South were tortured, killed, then other blacks were framed for the crime, where it was actually the cops who did it.

We have also seen similar cases where someone was convictred for aiding terrorism, for merely seeing a client access to Hizbollah channel (happened in NY recently), and someone aiding terrorists because he sent a money order to his family in Lebanon (there was a fraud involved in source of revenue, but the DA decided to ... go all the way).

After all, it is the time of Witch Hunt for Muslims in the US ... and the stories are many.
