Update: Hate Crime Victim KOs Skinhead

A self-proclaimed skinhead was knocked unconscious by a black man after threatening to stab him last weekend in Bayview, Idaho, officials said Friday. Daren Christopher Abbey, 28, was booked into jail on a malicious harassment charge after being treated at a hospital for facial fractures, according to the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Department. Abbey is accused of threatening to stab Marlon L. Baker, 46, inside J.D.’s Resort on July 3 in Bayview after telling Baker he didn’t belong in the bar because he was black, said Lt. Stu Miller. Baker left the bar to avoid a fight, but police say Abbey followed him to a marina about 300 yards away, called him racial slurs and again threatened to stab him/Meghann Cuniff, SR. More here.
