Suspect in custody after women wearing hijabs threatened with noose at Edmonton LRT station

Edmonton police have a suspect in custody in connection with a possible hate crime aimed at two hijab-wearing women.

Police made the announcement Tuesday, a day after providing a photograph of the man to media.

According to police, the man, believed to be in his 60s, approached two women wearing hijabs at the University of Alberta LRT station last month, pulled a rope from his pocket, tied a noose and said, "This is for you."

The man then proceeded to sing O Canada, which was caught on video by one of the women, police said.

Police thanked the public for helping the Hate Crimes Unit with the investigation.

Free Speech for Slave-Makers

Tags:+Free Speech +Liberty

Slave-makers (Dorian-types, Athenian-style slave-makers) want free speech for slave-makers—subjugation and oppression for everybody else.

The man accused of fatally stabbing two people who stepped in to stop a hate-filled tirade on a Portland train last week shouted "free speech or die" and "death to the enemies of America" as he was arraigned on murder charges Tuesday.

Jeremy Joseph Christian, 35, showed no remorse as he appeared in court Tuesday where one of the people he allegedly wounded sat in the audience.

"Free speech or die, Portland. You got no safe place," Christian said as he was being led into court from the holding area. "This is America. Get out if you don't like free speech."1

He had just marched through Montavilla Park chanting "nigger" and throwing fascist salutes, wearing an American Revolutionary War flag like a cape.

It was this act that sparked the first moment of chaos at the "free speech" rally on April 29 in Montavilla Park, which then proceeded down 82nd Avenue, a miserable replacement for a neighborhood parade canceled due to the threat of political violence. The man in the flag cape was quickly swarmed by scrawny young antifa kids, then by officers from the Portland Police Bureau.2

Freedom of speech means freedom of speech for everybody. If you only support free speech for the oppressors, you don't really support free speech.
