(CNN) - Three adults and two juveniles were arrested Wednesday for allegedly terrorizing a Jewish camp in Pennsylvania. Authorities say Tyler Cole Spencer, 18, Mark Trail, 21, Cassandra Robertson, 18, and two juveniles intimidated Jewish campers and staff at Camp Bonim on three separate occasions on July 14 and 15. Spencer allegedly drove a white Ford pickup truck "recklessly" through the camp, "narrowly missing several campers and staff" and damaging fields, yards, buildings and fences, the police criminal complaint said. The group also allegedly used paintball guns to shoot Jewish campers and staff, hitting one 18-year-old camper leaving a synagogue, according to the complaint.

    You obviously don't know anything about the violent political history and struggles of Puerto Rico under Spanish and U.S. rule, 500 years in the making, and we STILL have no representation in Congress, unlike D.C. which is also a U.S. commonwealth. Perhaps it's YOU who needs history lessons...

    All these years after the heyday of such cultural highlights as American antisemitism, Jim Crow and the zoot suit wars, you might think stuff like this would belong in a more ignorant past. Makes you wonder if gratuitous bigotry is a genetic trait.
