A California state worker has found herself in hot water this week after footage went viral of her confronting two Muslim men praying in a park. The footage was recorded on a cellphone, and has since sparked a hate crime investigation.
“But the people you tortured are going to be in eternity in Heaven. You are very deceived by Satan,” screamed a state worker identified as Denise Slader, according to CBS Local. “Your mind has been taken over, brainwashed, and you have nothing but hate.”
A park employee then tried to break up the fight, but it quickly became physical.
“This is really inappropriate, so—it is inappropriate for someone to tape record me, this lady was talking about my god,” one of the Muslims yelled. “Get out get out—do not touch me, call the cop, call the police.”
It was then that Slader threw her coffee at the Muslim and hit him with her umbrella.
The footage was uploaded to Facebook by one of the Muslims, who has been identified as Rasheed Albeshari. Alameda County District Attorney’s Office has launched an investigation into Slader for allegedly committing a hate crime and battery.
Slader is employed as a program technician for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. She has been with the department for ten years, and she made $29,600 last year. Because she insulted Muslims on camera, however, she is now in danger of losing everything.
“This lady came from nowhere, she was yelling Allah is Satan. The Quran is evil. You guys are bunch of brainwashed murderers,” whined Albeshari.
