    The more things change dept.:

    Metro police have arrested 27-year-old Kyler Wilson in connection to the vandalism.  Police said Monday at 3:30 a.m., Wilson broke into the mosque, shattered windows, knocked over furniture, and busted the windshields of two vehicles parked outside.

    Police found Wilson sleeping in a vehicle near the mosque wearing only boxer shorts.  Wilson told detectives that he drank heavily the previous night and did not remember anything from the incident.  He also said he has no animosity toward any religion or group.  Wilson is charged with burglary and felony vandalism.

    I can't remember doing it (while drunk.) So it can't be a hate crime, right?

    As with past incidences of vandalism, many are stepping forward in support.  Tennessee deserves its reputation as backwards and deranged in many respects.  But there's decent people everywhere who will stand up in the face of this kinda crap.

      boxer shorts - in February? I mean, even TN gets some cold temps at night in the winter. He's lucky he didn't succumb to hypothermia. So maybe he really was drunk. And an asshole.

        ... except for a few days. But you do raise a valid point there. I don't doubt the guy was drunk, being as how booze pretty much always makes one stupider, no matter where they start out.
