NEW HAVEN — Three Yale University students are charged with burning an American flag hanging from the porch of a Chapel Street home early Tuesday in the Wooster Square neighborhood.
When detained by police a few blocks away, they allegedly acknowledged it was a "dumb thing to do," according to a police report on the incident.
Somehow, I think that the thugs' confession was deliberate on the pretense that they'd literally be let off with a slap on the wrist. If the police are smart, they won't.
Hyder Akbar Said, 23, Nikolaos Angelopoulos, 19, and Farhad Anklesaria, also 19, were arrested on a range of charges including two counts of first-degree reckless endangerment, third-degree criminal mischief, second-degree arson, breach of peace, and conspiracy to commit second-degree arson.
Police listed Hyder’s last name as Akbar Said, while Yale has him listed as just Hyder Akbar.
The three students spent the night in jail and appeared dazed at their arraignment Tuesday morning when they entered Superior Court in leg irons and handcuffs. Bail was kept at $25,000 for Angelopoulos and Akbar, but was reduced to $15,000 for Anklesaria. They remained jailed Tuesday night.
They were dazed? Good.
The two freshmen, Anklesaria and Angelopoulos are foreign students: Anklesaria is British and Angelopoulos is Greek. Akbar, a senior, was born in Pakistan, according to police, but is a U.S. citizen. Both Anklesaria and Angelopoulos had to turn over their passports.
But what about Akbar Said? Shouldn't he undergo denaturalization for this? As for the two others, I think Anklesaria may be Pakistani too.
Akbar was wearing a hooded sweatshirt that read in bold letters, "I am Famous in Afghanistan," according to police. The political science major was quoted in a Yale Daily News story last year that he was a native of Afghanistan.
That sounds like terrorist worship to me. How sick.
