COUPLE EARNS HARD TIME FOR METH TOWN HATE CRIME SWASTIKA ASSAULT!!!
Yet another sign that we're not living in post-racial America after-all.
Two Independence residents each received sentences of more than five years in prison Thursday for intimidating an African-American family at its Independence home in 2008.
"Cheek Herrera and Smith admitted in August that in June 2008 they violated the civil rights of the family. Cheek Herrera helped Victoria Smith draw a swastika on his head. He yelled, “White power” and made “Heil Hitler” gestures at the home in the 600 block of South Arlington Avenue."
A tragic case to be sure but made even more embarrasing given that it's hard to claim racial superiority while living in or around Independence, MO.
