A new restaurant in Lowell, MA called Babylon that is owned by an Iraqi family recently had a 20-pound rock thrown through its window. In response, dozens of veterans showed up and created an unexpected dinner rush…
From The Lowell Sun…
Lowell police said they identified the man who threw the stone, and that he confessed. He will be charged in Lowell District Court, though police say his motive was not hatred….
Patrick Scanlon, a Vietnam veteran and coordinator of Veterans for Peace who organized the show of support, voiced skepticism that hate wasn’t involved, but said it was nonetheless important to show support for the family that had been hit hard by fear.
