Times Tough All Over, Pt. 2

Views

Today in Monterey, California, Nathan Augustine, 35, pleaded no contest to arson charges after confessing to throwing a Molotov cocktail into the Creative Visions tattoo parlor after the tattoo artists refused to give him a tattoo with a swastika and crosshairs overlaid on President Obama’s face.

Augustine was apparently also responsible for a vandalism spree in the first half of 2009 in which swastikas and the phrases “kill Obama” and “death to Obama” were painted around the city.

There was also the restaurant Augustine firebombed after they didn’t give him a job.
