Racism in Shenandoah
From the Republican Herald:
A preliminary hearing has been set for a Shenandoah woman facing multiple charges in connection with a bar fight in the borough last week.
Miriam Leticia Malave, 36, of 114 W. Laurel St., will go before Magisterial District Judge Anthony J. Kilker, Shenandoah, at 9 a.m. April 14. She faces two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of simple assault, two counts of recklessly endangering another person, one count of making terroristic threats and one count of harassment.
Malave and three Hispanic men allegedly beat several white patrons inside M&T Bar, 200 S. Main St., on Feb. 17.
Malave also allegedly yelled, “All the whites will die tonight,” during the assault, and hit bartender Melissa Elrod with a baseball bat.
Elrod eventually escaped and called police.
No charges have been filed against the three men involved in the fight, and they are not named in court documents.

This is not the first time this has happened.
Malave and three Hispanic men tried to assault three people with baseball bats on Aug. 7, 2006, according to court records. Malave and the men instead began smashing the victims’ cars with the bats before police arrived, according to the affidavit of probable cause.
Authorities initially charged Malave with ethnic intimidation in that case, but those charges were later dropped….
If whites had done the same thing in a Hispanic establishment…. Well, you know….
