Eastern Orthodox Priests Should Watch Their Step in Florida

Looks pretty suspicious to me.

A Marine reservist saves America from terrorism by beating a visiting Greek Orthodox priest with a tire iron.

Alexios Marakis, a Greek Orthodox priest visiting the U.S., got lost in Tampa and tried to stop and ask directions from Marine reservist Jasen D. Bruce. But instead of offering help, “Bruce struck the priest on the head with a tire iron.” The reservist believed Marakis, who spoke limited English, was an Arab terrorist. Bruce chased the priest for three blocks, “and even called 911 to say that an Arabic man tried to rob him.” According to a news release:

“During the chase, the suspect called 911 and claimed an Arabic male attempted to rob him and he was going to take him into custody,” a Tampa Police Department news release states. “When officers arrived, the suspect claimed the man was a terrorist.”

Police arrested Bruce for “aggravated battery with a deadly weapon” and are investigating whether he committed a hate crime.

This is usually the sort of thing Madpriest posts.

"Rush Palin and Sarah Limbaugh"

That's good.

I've been down to the Tampa St. Pete area and always had a good time down there.
This could have happened anywhere.

It could have happened in Texas or in Brooklyn.

Probably wouldn't have happened in Astoria or Tarpon Springs.

"Let him bathe, shave and wear pants. Greek clergy are very sympathtic to terrorism and preach anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism"

So, that gives us license to beat the shit out of them with a tire iron, right?

No wonder they hate Americans.
