San Francisco: 2 racists convicted of assault but acquitted of hate crime charges

Not 831, but seeing this made me want to start up the blog again.

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

Two men have been convicted of assault in an attack on two Hispanic men in San Francisco. A jury found 39-year-old Robert Allen and 29-year-old Justin Meskan guilty of felony assault with intent to cause great bodily injury and battery.

The men were also charged with hate crimes in the attack on 21-year-old Alex Cauich and his cousin, Jose Omar Cauich, but jurors did not convict them on those counts. The jury reached its decision on Oct. 7.

Alex and Jose Cauich were assaulted outside a bar in the city’s Tenderloin neighborhood on Nov. 9. Witnesses reported hearing the assailants yelling “white power” during the attack.

A third defendant, 33-year-old Anthony Weston, pleaded guilty to assault and the hate crime allegation before the trial began.

  1. I simply wished to say thanks once again. I’m not certain the things I would have used in the absence of those opinions revealed by you directly on such a subject matter. It was before an absolute intimidating situation in my position, nevertheless witnessing the very skilled technique you solved the issue took me to weep over contentment. I’m just happy for your help and as well , hope you

  2. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. However imagine if you added some great pictures or videos to give
    your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website
    could undeniably be one of the best in its field.
    Very good blog!
