Because you most assuredly wouldn't want the general population to know you are a convicted cross burner.
A 26-year-old Ypsilanti man will spend the next three years in prison for burning a cross outside a Sumpter Township home last year, a federal judge ruled Friday.
Ronald Joshua Youngblood, 26, of Ypsilanti, pled guilty in August and was sentenced yesterday to three years in prison for burning a cross outside a Sumpter Township home in June of 2006. TECHNICALLY he was found guilty of a civil rights conspiracy charge, interfering with housing rights and oh yeah, the unregistered handgun cause cross burners are cowards. Youngblood even admitted setting off an explosion so the residents would come out and see his handiwork.
Police said a tip and information available on the Internet led investigators to identify him as a suspect. Nice going supergeunius, did you brag about it online?
