FARIBAULT, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota man is accused of a bias crime for allegedly spraying a Somali American teenager and her siblings with a garden hose while he yelled racial slurs.

Eighteen-year-old Zachariah Manahan of Faribault, Minnesota, was charged Monday with felony stalking committed because of bias as well as misdemeanor charges of damaging property and disorderly conduct. Faribault is about 50 miles (80 kilometers) south of Minneapolis.

The 15-year-old girl told police that Manahan had sprayed her and her siblings.

The girl also said Manahan sprayed water through an open second-floor window of her family's home. Police say a rug, a piece of furniture and the walls were drenched.

3. Just 15 miles southeast of Lonsdale, MN, also in Rice County

Restaurant owner won't remove 'Muslims get out' sign, September 20, 2016
https://www.mprnews.org/story/2016/09/20/lonsdale-restaurant-sign


Dan Ruedinger, owner of Treats Family Restaurant in Lonsdale, posted the sign following Saturday's mass stabbing attack at a St. Cloud mall.

Ruedinger says his message is not directed at Muslims in general — only extremists — but he says he couldn't fit that word on the sign.


As far as I know, its still there.

7. A punk.

He even looks like a punk.

A thug. A loser.

Even money he has no job, lives in his parents' basement, and if he has a job it's at a local McD's.
(Was probably fired from multiple other jobs.)

6. And here is one of the things that led up to his heinous actions:

~snip~

Donald Trump on Sunday warned darkly of the danger posed by Somali migrants in Minneapolis, a deeply segregated city that has the largest Somali-American community in the US.

“Here in Minnesota, you’ve seen first-hand the problems caused with faulty refugee vetting, with very large numbers of Somali refugees coming into your state without your knowledge, without your support or approval,” the Republican nominee told a rally in the solidly Democratic state, two days before the presidential election.

He then claimed: “Some of them [are] joining Isis and spreading their extremist views all over our country and all over the world.”

“Everybody’s reading about the disaster taking place in Minnesota,” he added, before claiming, falsely: “You don’t even have the right to talk about it.”

13. Jesus. That's just evil. Hard to believe a US President would ever stoop to get that dirty.

I'm sure you're right. It was right in their state.

That last whopper was absolutely filthy, so very wrong. Clearly he's trying to make trouble, to get people hurt.

Thanks for this article. Hadn't seen it before you posted it.

14. Just to be clear, this happened in the final days of the 2016 Election.

Of course, we had already become numb to all of Donald's crap by then. It was just another day at the office.

16. Didn't know. I'm sure his filthy insults definitely set the tone, or fanned the flame of hatred

already raging among the idiot racists, at any rate.

No doubt hearing other racists, only ones more prominent, as they gibber their hatred to crowds does encourage the local inbred idiots to get bolder in their ongoing war against strangers they can terrorize.

It's true, the orange nightmare's racism was completely familiar to us by then.

19. He incited in Portland ME using identical language

Portland PD even had a somali-american officer on duty
my friend was a reporter there and said the crowd was small and rabid, he felt like he had a target on his back as well

9. If there's one thing that gets racists worked up in MN, it's Somalians

If I had a dollar for every time I've heard white people bitch about their prayer breaks or how they can't touch pork, I'd be a millionaire.

12. Assholes are everywhere.

I live in Minneapolis. There are a lot of Somalis in my neighborhood but I've never heard anyone say a negative word about them. However, if you get out in the suburbs and small towns it's a whole different story. People seem to be more prejudiced against people they hardly ever see.

20. Punk-ass creep!

His life as a racist incel is going to be pretty bleak, I think. About 6 months in the county lock-up might do him some good, but he's likely to make like-minded friends there.

We have a thriving Somali community here in the Twin Cities. Those immigrants are working hard and trying to make their way in a strange country that has plenty of people who don't like them. The rest of us do what we can to support their struggle.

Racism and Xenophobia exists here, just like it does everywhere. That young fellow needs to get his head straightened out.

No there's just one side that's committing these heinous hate crimes.
