Hate crime and vandalism charges were filed today against a 49-year-old man who allegedly vandalized a San Fernando Valley plumbing business twice with anti-Semitic graffiti, including the message "Kill Jews!"

The City Attorney's Office charged Amos Hason with three misdemeanor counts of vandalism and three counts of a hate crime.

"This case is a stark reminder that there is still hate in our society and we must strike back against it every time it emerges," City Attorney Mike Feuer said.

Prosecutors allege Hason drove to the Jewish-owned Van Nuys plumbing business twice in April and painted swastikas and anti-Semitic graffiti including, "Adolf was right. Kill Jews!" on a rear fence and dumpster out back. The vandalism was captured by a surveillance camera, authorities said.

Hason, who was arrested over the weekend, has been convicted twice on weapons possession charges, according to the City Attorney's Office.

His bail is set at $68,000 and he is scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow morning at the Van Nuys Courthouse.

Hason is facing up to three years in jail and $15,000 in fines if convicted.

It is not unnatural because first & foremost we are all human beings created equal, so it is not against nature...It's called ignorance for one group of people to think they are better than another....By the way, against nature means to do things against the the norm....In the case of Donald Sterling, he is the biggest hypocrite, especially being a Jew and all of the persecutions the Jews have suffered, from Hitler & around the world and always from the USA, he has no room to be racist, Period......

It is completely unnatural for people who are very different to live together. TT The most different people I know are men and women. Do you suggest they be segregated . I really can't take you seriously .

I was afraid my three year old was anti-Semitic, but it turns out she just really dislikes juice.
