A Saline High School student is accused of ‘ethnic intimidation’ after he allegedly called another student a terrorist and then punched him in the face. Funny how the report says the Muslim yelled back but we don’t get to learn what he called the non-Muslim.
Ann Arbor News Daryl Larkin, 17, was the passenger in a vehicle driven by another 17-year-old Saline High School student on Campus Parkway near Saline High School at about 11:30 a.m. Thursday, said Pittsfield Township Deputy Chief of Police Gordy Schick.
Schick said Larkin allegedly called the pedestrian a terrorist, which the pedestrian took exception to and yelled back at Larkin and the other student. The driver turned the car back around and went back to the pedestrian and more words were exchanged, Schick said.
“The victim told the other two students he didn’t appreciate being called a terrorist and he felt they were challenging his ethnic background,” Schick said. (NO, they were challenging his ‘ethnic’ desire to kill all non-Muslims as taught by his religion) “That’s when the passenger got out and punched him in the face.”
Larkin was arraigned on one count of ethnic intimidation and was given a $10,000 personal recognizance bond, according to Washtenaw County Jail records. If convicted, Larkin faces a maximum of two years in prison and a fine of $5,000.
The ‘victim’ suffered minor injuries, Schick said. The victim’s ethnic background isn’t known by police, Schick said.(If you don’t know his ethnicity, how do you charge the other kid with ethnic intimidation?)
