William Hatch, Paul Beebe and Jesse Sanford had just finished their shift at McDonalds when they decided to have a little fun with a mentally disabled Navajo man. They formed a swastika from a wire hanger, heated it on a stove and branded the arm of the man. They werent done. They shaved a swastika into his hair and wrote all over his body images of white supremacy as well as a graphic depiction of a penis. The defendants are the very first to be accused of violating the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act and could face 10 years in prison if convicted. The sentences could be extended to life if the government proves kidnapping occurred. They have pled not guilty. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20101130/ap_on_re_us/us_swastika_brand This is just another race related attack in a community that has a long history of conflict between Caucasians and Navajos. How terribly, terribly sad.
