Indianapolis - A 21-year-old man has been sentenced to three years in prison for spray-painting anti-Semitic graffiti and lighting fires outside a suburban Indianapolis synagogue.

U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler says 21-year-old Nolan Brewer of Eminence was sentenced Monday evening for conspiring to violate the civil rights of Congregation Shaarey Tefilla. Minkler announced Tuesday that Brewer pleaded guilty to a federal hate crime.

Nazi flags and iron crosses were found spray-painted July 28 on a brick shed outside the synagogue in Carmel, just north of Indianapolis. Several areas of the grass and ground around the shed were also scorched, leaving burn residue on part of the shed. Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard condemned the vandalism and Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb cited the incident in asking the Legislature to pass a hate crimes bill.

What was Sloppy Steve Bannon doing in Indiana? I thought he was in Europe getting the neo-nazi fine people together for the next round of pogroms. The alt-yidden worship of trump will lead to more pogroms (PITT, SAN D) right here in the USA.

Wow! How original! And well thought out. An obvious product or careful thought and intense contemplation.

Or you heard one of your trailer park neighbors' kids yell it at the demolition derby.

Tough call.
