    Offended Muslim chokes atheist

    A Muslim judge in Pennsylvania – who scolded a local atheist for offending Islam, called him a doofus and accused him of “using the First Amendment” to madden Muslims – dismissed harassment charges against the Muslim defendant who purportedly choked the atheist during a Halloween parade.

    District Judge Mark Martin brought a Quran to court and told the alleged victim, American Atheists’ Pennsylvania State Director Ernest Perce V, “I think you misinterpreted a couple of things. So before you start mocking somebody else’s religion, you might want to find out a little more about it. It kind of makes you look like a doofus.”

    The judge added, “I think our forefathers intended to use the First Amendment so we can speak with our mind, not to p— off other people and cultures – which is what you did.”

    Perce had worn a “zombie Muhammad” costume and proclaimed that he was the Prophet Muhammad risen from the dead at the Oct, 11, 2011, event in Mechanicsburg, Pa. A “zombie pope” was also featured in the parade that night.

    Now the Scranton Atheism Examiner reports that Perce could be arrested for posting audio of the judge scolding him for mocking Muhammad. According to report, the Muslim judge has threatened to hold him in contempt of court for releasing the recording. Perce has claimed he was given permission to post the audio.

    The Examiner reports that Perce said he posted the audio because the judge treated him unfairly and showed preferential treatment for the Muslim defendant.

    According to reports, the atheists were marching when Talaag Elbayomy, a Muslim, stormed out of the crowd and assaulted Perce, grabbing a sign around his neck and pulling until the strings choked him.

    The men caught the attention of a nearby police officer.

    Mechanicsburg Police Officer Bryan Curtis told Pennsylvania’s WHTM-TV, “Mr. Perce has the right to do what he did that evening, and the defendant in this case was wrong in what he did in confronting him.”

    He added, “I believe that I brought a case that showed proof beyond a reasonable doubt, and the case was dismissed, and I was disappointed.”

    Elbayomy – who said he believed it was illegal to mock Muhammad – was charged with harassment. He denied touching Perce at trial, but Officer Curtis said Elbayomy admitted grabbing Perce’s sign and beard the night of the incident.

    However, Judge Martin dismissed the charges and purportedly belittled the atheist victim....................................

    Isn't the bigger story here that the judge dismissed the case? He has a . . . novel . . . view on the First Amendment.

    The judge should be removed from the bench. He obviously does not have a good grasp on law.

    As an aside.......I always hate threads that go "Where is the outrage from the............" especially concerning an obscure circumstance. Give people a chance to form an opinion.

    Where's the outrage from the left?

    I'll tell you where it is. NASCAR drivers have no business being Muslim judges!

    According to the news source, the Judge was muslim. Isn't that a conflict of interest?

    Not by itself, but it certainly appears to have been in this case.

    The judge should be removed.The right to free speech means you have the right to offend anyone. The individual was a victim of assault and battery and the judge just let the assailant off the hook.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Outrage for what? Two stupids at a parade acting stupid? Going to give a guy a police record because of some minor physical contact that was provoked? I like it. Shows that some judges have some brains.

    ^^^^^^ Never mind.

    Read the link first, MaggieD.

    From the information provided, the guy didn't provoke the Muslim...the Muslim just didn't like the costume he was wearing. Then ran up to him and grabbed a sign that was 'round his neck and tugged. I changed my mind. The judge was out of line. At the very least, he should have been verbally spanked. Instead, the costume wearer was given a lecture. Not right in my mind.

    Hey! Anyone know how to use strike out? I've seen it used, but don't know how to do it.

    I wasn't aware that choking someone for being offensive was legal.

    Today will be a fun day.
