THE CRIME BLOTTER: HATE CRIMES, METH AND MURDER SUICIDE; 38 MELNAR 3 AS
Here’s a rundown on what’s going on in crime in the United States recently:
Pastor Reginald Myers, 65, was viciously beaten and called racial slurs in an attack outside his home in Pittsburgh. Two men, Gerard Rupert and Robert Noftz were arrested along with Kaela Rupert after the assault. The three are all charged with aggravated assault and ethnic intimidation.
Two cousins, Joshua M Christe and William Cornelius Jr. were sentenced to 180 days in jail after the racially motivated beating of three young men in Bay City, Michigan. Christe and Cornelius hurled slurs at the three men who were walking a dog and passed by Christe’s home. They then approached the men and got in a physical confrontation that left Cornelius bloodied to a point where he required medical attention. Neighbors heard the scuffle and testified they hear the cousins hurling racial epithets that led to the fight. The Judge in the case, Harry P. Gill, stated, “It is sad that the color of a person’s skin can attract attention because they simply are walking through a neighborhood.”
Man assaulted in Rushville, Indiana outside bar on Halloween night claims the attack is a hate crime.
Nathan Wiley and Charles Alford of Defuniak Springs, Florida have been arrested and charged with running a criminal enterprise to distribute methamphetamine and associated gun charges.
Six Cortland County, New York residents have been charged with operating a meth lab.
