A man who vandalized a Central Florida mosque by smashing windows and lights with a machete and leaving bacon at the scene pleaded guilty to criminal mischief to a place of worship.
The state attorney’s office serving Brevard and Seminole counties said Michael Wolfe was sentenced to 15 years in prison followed by 15 years of probation after he pleaded guilty Tuesday. The sentence had a hate crime enhancement.
The 37-year-old was sentenced as a habitual offender. Titusville police arrested Wolfe in January 2016 after the New Year’s Day vandalism. A surveillance video showed him smashing lights, cameras and windows with a machete.
Bacon was left by the front door. Consumption of pork and pork products made from pork is forbidden in Islam.

Michael Wolfe, 37, of Titusville, Fla., will serve 15 years in state prison, followed by 15 years probation for the January 2016 crime at the Islamic Society of Central Florida Masjid Al-Munin Mosque in Titusville. Prosecutors said the agreement was reached after discussions with the Islamic Society of Central Florida and Titusville police.
“He entered a plea deal and plead guilty to vandalizing the mosque itself with hate crime enhancement, making it a felony,” said Todd Brown, a spokesman for the State Attorney’s Office. “He waived his right to a pre-sentencing investigation.”
USA Today left out an important party in the sentencing: Terror-linked, terror-named, FBI-banned CAIR was involved in the extreme sentence:
The sentence was reached after prosecutors spoke to the police and CAIR.
The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations celebrated the sentence.
“The Florida Muslim Community is suffering an unprecedented number of hate crimes,” spokesman Wilfredo Ruiz said in a statement on Wednesday. “Multiple mosques and Islamic institutions have been broken into, vandalized and even set on fire.”
Imam Muhammad Musri, who oversees several mosques in the area, thought the sentence was justified.
“The intent is to really deter similar kinds of hate crime. After what we’ve seen in Texas at the church, this is needed,” he said, adding that authorities uncovered a plot to attack a Jacksonville mosque last week. “Our schools, our churches, our theaters, it’s a red line. It’s heartbreaking. The hate must stop.”
The fake hate crimes perpetrated by Muslims and made to look like they were committed by non-Muslims? Silence. They don’t need to stop. The perpetrators of those crimes are usually slapped on the wrist and released often times without their names ever being made public. But leave some bacon behind and it becomes a felony.
As reported by the Sun-Sentinel newspaper, 37-year-old Michael Wolfe was recently sentenced to a whopping 15 years in prison for breaking into a Central Florida mosque and vandalizing it, before leaving bacon at the scene (Muslims do not eat pork).
Insulting, yes. Cruel, yes. Highly inappropriate, yes. But worse than murder? Hardly.
And yet, after pleading guilty to “criminal mischief at a place of worship,” Wolfe gets 15 years in jail to be followed by 15 years of probation…for breaking some windows and lights and leaving bacon at the scene of the crime.
There are extenuating circumstances. Wolfe was sentenced as a repeat habitual offender, though the paper did not elaborate on his other criminal acts. But I’m betting that murder wasn’t one of them.
The author’s point?
In recent days tens of millions of Americans, including President Donald J. Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, were outraged when a San Francisco jury failed to convict the illegal alien who killed Kate Steinle, 32, in 2015 of murder.
Steinle, who died in her father’s arms, fell after being struck by a bullet fired by Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, of Mexico, from a gun he stole from the car of a federal Interior Department agent. He had been deported five times before but was let go by the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department due to a politically correct sanctuary city policy in which local police are forbidden to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
So what was Garcia Zarate convicted of? Essentially a gun crime — “felon in possession of a gun” — because the Left-wing lunatics who run San Francisco (thanks to being regularly returned to office by Left-wing lunatic voters) hate guns more than they are offended by someone breaking U.S. immigration laws and murdering American citizens.
This example of politically correct justice certainly is far from the only one that we’ve seen come down the pike in recent days.
It won’t be the last as long as incompetent prosecutors are teaming up with terror-linked Muslim hate groups like CAIR.
