Cry me a river

It’s official. The people of Maine have completely lost it. They have rewritten the law to reflect their PC obsession.

They have now made it a CRIME to offend someone. That’s right. I said, “offend someone.” I did not say, “attack someone.” I did not say, “kill someone.” I didn’t even say, “assault someone.” I said, “offend someone.” If you hurt someone’s feelings, in Maine, you can be investigated for a HATE CRIME!

Last week, a student at Lewiston Middle School walked over to a table where several Somali students were sitting, and threw a bag on their table. Inside the bag was a ham sandwich. Innocent enough, right? Wrong.

You see, these Somali students are Muslim. Their religion prohibits them from eating pork products. To them, it is unclean. So, to be that close to a ham sandwich is highly offensive.

Did the student who threw the bag on the table know this? Of course he did. He did it to be a jerk. He intentionally offended them.


Last time I checked, there was no law against offending someone. Nowhere, in any State or Federal document, will you find a statute prohibiting offending someone. This kid broke no laws. It was a jerk thing to do, but it was completely lawful.

Yet, you must remember. We live in a society of candy ass wusses. The kid who threw the sandwich on the table is now being investigated for a HATE CRIME! I…kid…you…not:

Police are investigating as a possible hate crime an incident in which a ham steak was placed in a bag on a lunch table where a group of Somali students were sitting.

A Lewiston Middle School student was suspended after the incident, which happened April 11.

Superintendent Leon Levesque said the incident is being treated seriously and police are investigating. The center for the Prevention of Hate Violence is working with the school to devise a response plan.

What the hell??? What has our country come to? In order for a hate crime investigation to take place, a CRIME must have been committed. In this situation, NO CRIME WAS COMMITTED.

However, the PC crowd is making a practice of coddling our candy ass citizens. The worst crime in their eyes is hurting someone’s feelings. When such a travesty takes place, the CRIMINAL should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The strong arm of the Government should take hold of him, and never let go. After all, he offended someone.
