A Keswick man has received 45 days in jail for a hate crime. He hung a black skeleton under a confederate flag. York Regional Police investigated a complaint and requested that the display be taken down, Luke Granados refused and the “decoration” stayed up until December when a warrant was received to have it removed.
Originally having taken the position it was simply a halloween decoration, Granados pled guilty to wilfully promoting hate.
What is even more frightening than the idea that a person with that level of hatred within lives among us, is the support he is receiving from some Canadians. If there was any doubt about what that symbolism was perhaps this cartoon might clear it up.
