The Sacramento Police Department is refusing to drop an investigation into a possible hate crime after the Roman Catholic Diocese received a FedEx package containing a model of Barack Obama floating in a jar of urine.
“Until all the facts are in, we’re treating this incident as a religious hate crime,” said Sacramento PD spokesman Major Hochstetter. “How do we know it’s not Jesus floating in that jar?”
Officials from the Diocese say it’s patently obvious that Obama is not Jesus. “However, we do appreciate how the sender could be confused on that point,” said Bishop Soto.
The package was sent from San Francisco.
