NEWS: African-American Man Hung Noose On Tupac

Somewhat surprising news related to an earlier post concerning the noose hung around the Tupac statue's neck.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that a 43-year-old Dekalb resident has been charged in the recent defacement of the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts in Stone Mountain, Georgia. According to the , Kenneth Anthony Wilson was charged on Thursday (November 1) with second degree criminal damage to property, which is a felony. The defendant has not been charged with a hate crime and is being held on a $1500 bond. DeKalb police spokeswoman Mekka Parish said that investigators had no reason to believe the attack was racially motivated. I wonder if someone has ever been convicted of a hate crime against their own people. Sounds like a Chappel skit to me.
