An Elmira man accused of threatening a SUNY Potsdam professor has been indicted.

23 year old Amjad Hussain faces two felony counts of Aggravated Harassment in the Second Degree as a Hate Crime and one count of Criminal Solicitation in the Fourth Degree.

The former State University of New York at Potsdam student allegedly delivered two messages to the professor that included death threats and racist and homophobic language. The messages also allegedly threatened the professors family. Authorities say Hussain also got someone else to deliver a third note.

Hussain was arrested in November of 2015. If convicted, he faces up to four years in state prison on each felony count.

Yet, so many gays continue to vote for the party that wants to import hundreds of thousands of gay bashers.

Potsdam is really an “out in the country” kind of town. Sad to see that the muzzy scum have taken their war to the heartland. Praying that Americans have the courage to put a top to the invasion.

“They take their sweet old time getting around to the indictment up there, huh.”

An acquaintance’s daughter was recently severely beaten by her longterm, live-in “boyfriend.” He is a drug dealer. Five years ago he went to meet a buyer who decided he wanted the drugs for free. The boyfriend shot and killed the other man. Since then he has been out on bail. Bail, for five years. Finally, the bail was cancelled because of the beating. (When police arrived, he was naked, on all fours and trying to bite the furniture. I’m guessing some new drug he was beta-bite testing.)

So, the wheels of justice grind slowly and, apparently, in coarse chunks. I am guessing that the indictment you are referencing happened in comparative warp speed.

Since the FBI let Hillary skate, I am wondering if “justice” works on any level. (Although, they were pretty damned quick to put the sailor who took a selfie in front of a computer screen in jail for a full year. If only he had used his personal server and sent thousands of classified emails, he could have skated too.)

“Hussain was arrested in November of 2015. If convicted, he faces up to four years in state prison on each felony count.”.....

How about deporting his sick azz once he’s out of prison?

Since when is “homophobic language” a felony?

I’m guessing the homophobic language was coupled with a legitimate threat of physical harm.

I have the same concerns “hate crimes” are taking on life of their own. Since it’s not real, not a real crime, hate is a “feeling”, I’m waiting for “thought crime” charges because someone else “felt” hurt.

Yes. The story is supposed to be about death threats, but that get magically transmogrified into "homophobic language".
