Charred cross found in Charles Co. yard

By Erica Johnston

A Charles County resident said he found a charred cross, about three feet tall, in his front yard over the weekend, the county sheriff’s office said.

Officers went to the 4200 block of Hilltop Court in the Brandywine area on Saturday and collected evidence, the sheriff’s office said.

The incident was described as a hate crime, and rewards totalling $6,000 have been offered for information leading to an arrest, authorities said.

the cross in question was three feet tall. So i'd start by rounding up all the dwarves, midgets, leprechans and little people in general.

This doesn't surprise me much. That part of Charles county is low to low-middle class whites and middle class blacks. With the income disparity and the mentality of some of the residents, I am saddened but not surprised.

Many people believe Boothe erred when he crossed the Potomac into Virginia after shooting Lincoln. They would have never found him in southern Maryland.

Say what you will, but you'll never find a burned Star of David in anyone's yard
