A group called the Parading Atheists of Central PA marched with a zombie Pope and a zombie Mohammed on Halloween 2011 in Mechanicsburg, PA.
Talaag Elbayomy felt the depiction of Mohammed in this manner was a crime and assaulted Ernie Pierce, the man dressed as the zombie.
“Grabbed me, choked me … [tried] to get my sign off…”
When brought to court, district Judge Mark Martin dismissed the case and chastised the atheist for the one inciting the incident. In short, he “blamed the victim”. Many say Martin was biased in his review of the case because he, too, is Muslim.
Many comments that I had read said that had this been a Christian judge and Christian attacker that he’d have been chastised.
