    California Prosecutes Man For Posting Anti-Muslim Messages On Facebook

    California Prosecutes Man For Posting Anti-Muslim Messages On Facebook

    California has leveled misdemeanor charges against 41-year-old Mark Feigin after he sent five anti-Muslim posts to the Islamic Center of Southern California’s (ICSC) Facebook page in 2016.
    The California Attorney General’s office argues that his comments constituted “repeated contact by means of an electronic communication device” with “intent to annoy or harass,” a misdemeanor under California law, Reason.com reported Friday. California courts are scheduled to begin the trial Jan. 2, according to court records. Feigin admitted in October 2016 that he wrote the following comments between Sept. 17 and 25 of the same year.

    • “THE TERROR HIKE … SOUNDS LIKE FUN” (In reference to the Center’s advertised “Sunset Hike”)
    • “THE MORE MUSLIMS WE ALLOW INTO AMERICA THE MORE TERROR WE WILL SEE.”
    • “PRACTICING ISLAM CAN SLOW OR EVEN REVERSE THE PROCESS OF HUMAN EVOLUTION.”
    • “Islam is dangerous – fact: the more muslim savages we allow into america – the more terror we will see -this is a fact which is undeniable.”
    • “Filthy muslim shit has no place in western civilization.”

    ICSC Communications Coordinator Kristin Stangas blocked Feigin soon after he made the final post, but also kept copies of the comments to pursue legal action. The Los Angeles Police Department arrested Feigin Oct. 19 and interviewed him. Feigin is now arguing that his charges should be dismissed because they are based on an unconstitutional application of the law.
    Specifically, Cal. Penal Code § 653m(b) states that “every person who, with intent to annoy or harass, makes repeated telephone calls or makes repeated contact by means of an electronic communication device … to another person is … guilty of a misdemeanor. Nothing in this subdivision shall apply to telephone calls or electronic contacts made in good faith or during the ordinary course and scope of business.”
    The AG’s office argues that Facebook comments are not legally different from telephone calls in this circumstance, and that Feigin’s intent was clearly to “annoy or harass,” making his actions illegal.

    This will probably only apply to Muslims. I see many hate posts directed at conservatives and Christians(especially evangelical Christians) but it's fine and dandy to hate them according to liberals and the mainstream media. SMH

    Man accused of threatening to kill people at Islamic center because of 'hatred for Muslims'

    Kate Mather
    October 25, 2016 4:35 PM


    State prosecutors have charged an Agoura Hills man with making criminal threats after police say he called the Islamic Center of Southern California and threatened to kill people there.

    Investigators allege that Mark Feigin, 40, called the center twice last month, at one point threatening to kill its members because of his “hatred for Muslims and his belief that Muslims will destroy the United States,” LAPD Cmdr. Horace Frank said Tuesday at a news conference.


    The LAPD launched an investigation into the calls and arrested Feigin during a traffic stop Oct. 19, Frank said. Police then searched his Agoura Hills home and found several guns — rifles, shotguns, handguns — and thousands of rounds of ammunition, the commander said.


    “When people make threats of this nature and they have the means to carry out those threats, it’s a very serious matter,” Frank said.


    Feigin faces an additional allegation of committing a hate crime and a misdemeanor count of making annoying telephone calls, according to documents filed in court last week. He is scheduled to be arraigned Nov. 10.


    Feigin, who posted bail and was released from jail a day after he was arrested, could not immediately be reached for comment.


    The first call to the Islamic Center came Sept. 19, when a man left a voicemail that was “peppered with vulgarity and espoused hatred toward the Muslim faith,” Frank said. The next day, Frank said a man called again, threatening to kill the person who answered the phone along with other members of the center.


    “Unfortunately, in today’s political climate, such hate is not uncommon,” said Omar Ricci, a spokesman for the Islamic Center of Southern California. “We get a call every once in a while. This particular call rose to a different level.”


    Frank did not specify how police identified Feigin as their suspect, saying only that police were able to “connect the voice to the person who called.” Investigators obtained warrants to arrest Feigin and search his home last week.


    Though Feigin has a constitutional right to free speech, Frank said, “that right does not extend to making statements that threaten the well-being of others.”


    “People make those calls all the time,” he said. “Where you cross the line is the threat to kill them. … That’s where free speech ends.”


    Police are also looking into Facebook posts and tweets that may be connected to Feigin, Frank said. Many of the tweets shared by the LAPD include disparaging, profanity-laced remarks about Muslims, calling Muslims “filthy Islamic beasts” and saying they should be “quarantined.”


    The tweets also included remarks against Muslim refugees — “drowning them is best,” one read.


    The Islamic Center has increased security in the wake of the calls and the arrest, which Ricci said had shaken the community. When Ricci saw photos of the guns and ammunition police found in Feigin’s home, he said he feared a “Columbine-type event,” referring to the Colorado high school shooting massacre in 1999.


    “He could have very easily barged into our facility, with the innocent parishioners, constituents,” Ricci said. “The worst comes to mind.”
