Davis resident who attacked mosque with bacon faces 6 years in prison

capture

Only in the Orwellian Police State that we live in could this happen.

An unemployed Davis resident has been arrested and charged with vandalizing the Davis Islamic Center last month in what both state and federal prosecutors are calling a hate crime.

Lauren Kirk-Coehlo, 30, was arrested at her residence Tuesday morning following a joint investigation by the Davis Police Department and the FBI, law enforcement officials said at a news conference Tuesday afternoon.

Tips from the public triggered by surveillance video from the Islamic center helped investigators build the case against Kirk-Coehlo, said Davis Police Chief Darren Pytel, who cited the work of Detective Dan LaFond in conjunction with the FBI.

Kirk-Coehlo, a graduate of UC Berkeley, has been booked into the Yolo County jail for felony vandalism with a hate crime enhancement in relation to the early morning Jan. 22 incident, said Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig.

Kirk-Coehlo was also charged with felony vandalism to a church for the purpose of intimidating worshippers and using fear to prevent them from freely exercising their religious beliefs, Reisig said.

The suspect faces up to six years in prison if convicted, and bail has been set at $1 million.

Among other things, the suspect is charged with wrapping strips of bacon on the center’s exterior door handle.

  1. Does anyone think that if this hero had smeared feces all over a christian church and wrote slogans on it that he would get 6 years.. he would have been declared a hero of the left … Ridiculous… It’s a hate crime alright.. A hate crime against common sense. Only in Davis and other leftist occupied areas would this be a hate crime… Stupid and asinine .. yes.. not hate.
