What You're Saying, Pikesville: Anti-Semitic Act, Polls

An anti-Semitic prank in California is raising ire among some Pikesville Patch readers; and Fleet Feet leads in the Readers Choice poll as best sporting goods shop.

The three girls who allegedly committed an anti-Semitic act in California, and the woman who drove them, should be prosecuted, one Pikesville Patch reader said.

"Prosecute them and the mother for a hate crime," said Victoria Minkov on Pikesville Patch's Facebook page. That comment got two 'likes.'

According to a report in Chatsworth Patch in California, the prank included dog feces on the porch of a home, as well as swastikas and the word 'Jew' written in maple syrup along the home's walkway.

In the poll attached to the story on Pikesville Patch, the first vote cast blames the alleged incident on the woman who allegedly drove the girls to the home.

All of them should be prosecuted for a misdemeanor....and their names made public, of course. Let's give them the benefit of the doubt and say they're not really anti-semitic, just ignorant of the harm their actions can (and did) create. Charge all of them. The girls are old enough to know better, too. The mother, should have to perform 40 hours in public service, the girls, 20 hours.

Russell, It will be interesting to see what does happen. Whomever did this missed something important in their moral education. I hope they can be rehabilitated. If the young girls did this, I know they'll regret it for a long time.
