Hate Crime Investigation of the Day: Shaima Alawadi, a 32-year-old mother of five who emigrated from Iraq with her husband 17 years ago, was found severely beaten inside her El Cajon, California home next to a note that allegedly read “go back to your own country. You’re a terrorist.”

Alawadi was rushed to the hospital, but passed away after being taken off life support yesterday afternoon.

Investigators say they believe this was “an isolated incident,” and a hate crime is just “one of the possibilities” they are exploring.

Really, y’all? ONE of the possibilities? I guess you have to fucking rule out suicide first, huh?
