Judge orders attack suspect to write 10-page report

25 September 2012 General 4 Comments Email This Post Email This Post

BAY CITY, MICH. (AP) — A Michigan man who authorities say attacked two men because he believed they were Muslims has been ordered to write a report on the history of Hinduism.

Bay County Circuit Judge Joseph Sheeran on Monday sentenced 26-year-old Delane Bell to two years of probation, with the condition he write the 10-page report.

Sheeran says the men who were attacked are Hindus and Bell needs to educate himself. MLive.com reports Bell says he takes “full responsibility.”

The Bangor Township man pleaded no contest in March to ethnic intimidation in the November attack. Authorities say he yelled “jihad” and “Osama bin Laden.”

A no contest plea isn’t an admission of guilt, but is treated as such for sentencing. The judge earlier ordered Bell to write 10 pages about accomplishments of Muslims.

  1. Why just Hinduism?

  2. Lol!

  3. I think the Judge has a good idea. I have been persecuted and assaulted countless times and no one has ever gone to court as a result, but I had to change my name from Neal Kamal Al-Chalabi to Neal Chalabi Chambers to avoid constant life rending assualts.

    The ancient Chinese believed harsh sentences evoked a social distrust and fear of the law whereas mild sentences evoked social respect for the law and created a social atmosphere whereby shame was the social mechanism that gained strength and encouraged adherence to the law.

    I think the Judge was wise in sentencing and would hope that the sentencing would not be completed until the report was returned and reviewed.

  4. “Why just Hinduism?”

    Because if he wrote one about islam it would be poured over by muslims and any break from orthodoxy could seriously compromise his life and safety
