Strange twist in the Dayton incident

There’s been a followup in the Dayton mosque incident, with the police now revealing that the can of pepper spray was found inside the mosque, not nearby:

The can of pepper spray found four days after someone sprayed a
10-year-old girl in the face at a local mosque was discovered inside
the mosque, a Dayton police lieutenant said.

The girl said she was sprayed about 9:40 p.m. Sept. 26 through an
open basement window of the Islamic Society of Greater Dayton, Lt. John
Huber said.

The girl told police one of two men outside the basement window
sprayed her with something from a white can with a red top as she
watched children whose parents and relatives had gathered at the mosque
to celebrate Ramadan.

A can of pepper spray was found Sept. 30 in another room in the
basement inside a red and white-striped bag, Huber said. He said it was
initially reported to him that the can was found near the mosque, but
he later learned it was inside the mosque.

The article also mentions that the police interviewed a ten-year old boy in relation to the incident. It’s possible that this wasn’t an attack at all, but an accident between children. If that’s the case, then obviously the Obsession mass-mailing was not relevant to the incident at hand (though hardly exculpatory for the more serious critique of Obsession, that the movie creates a climate of hate and mistrust towards ordinary muslim-Americans. There’s no white-washing the cynical evil intent of the movie and its cowardly, shadowy backers).

I hope that this incident turns out to have been nothing more than an accident and not a hate crime at all. That would be really, really great news indeed.

    Well now don’t you feel foolish. Want to even feel more foolish? The blogger Chris Rodda who wrote the account of “her friends friend” isn’t just some blogger as she implies in this DDN article:
    http://www.daytondailynews.com/n/content/oh/story/news/local/2008/10/03/ddn100308mosque.html
    She actually a very active intolerant liberal blogger on the Huffingtonpost and the author of the Christian bashing book “Liars for Jesus”. Here she attacks the DDN’s and it’s writers to try to deflect the fact that she has been exposed as a liar and a fake.
