Now just imagine that a Christian had painted **THE EXACT SAME THING** on a Muslim-owned restaurant. Would that individual be walking away scot-free?

So does this guy get a free pass because of his hispanic name or because he is a homosexual? Or are the authorities worried about what might happen if they put him in a local jail?

“I am happy to pay for the costs of repainting the wall, but I am not — nor will I ever be — happy to sit quietly at the back of the bus.”

There were laws against black people sitting at the front of the bus. The CEO of Chick-fil-A did nothing more than merely express his personal opinion. There is a difference.

CFA is lucky the DA didn’t charge them for the “art work”.

Some animals are more equal than other animals. The prosecutor’s office is not applying the law and it appears to be simply because they are supporting the vandalist’s opinion. When laws are not equally prosecuted, we have tyranny.

How is this governmental endorsement of vandalizing private property, simply because of a political point of view, any different than the Nazi endorsement of vandalizing Jewish businesses?

Or a Gay Bar.

Where is this guy’s art studio? I have some free speech that I would like to apply.

Welcome to a fascist state.

...the record does not establish the suspect was motivated by religious hatred

I don't care what his motivation was. The suspect intentionally damaged someone else's private property. That is a crime.

The suspect has acknowledged his wrongdoing...

Here are a few quotes from the suspect:
“Everybody is entitled to free speech...
“I didn’t use violence. I used paint. Artists for centuries have expressed their opinions through this medium and I am no different.
“I am happy to pay for the costs of repainting the wall, but I am not — nor will I ever be — happy to sit quietly at the back of the bus.”

That doesn't exactly sound like contrition. It appears the DA's office has decided not to prosecute because they consider crimes against the Christian minority in that state to be less serious than other crimes. I wonder how long it will be before they wink at the lynching of Christians.

If the bus had a closet, you should be quietly sitting in it. If you don't broadcat your mental illness, you'll be treated like anyone else.

Not surprising. It is just like the New Black Panther Party members who had their charged dropped for voter intimidation.
