Five people are facing charges in an incident in Pennsylvania, in the
United States, that left Jewish campers fearing for their lives. The
five are charged with attacking Camp Bonim in Wayne Country, and with
targeting a counselor outside the camp.
The group, led by 18-year-old Tyler Spencer, drove into the camp
three times in a pickup truck. On the first occasion Spencer drove in
circles at high speed in order to damage several sports fields.
In the second attack, the group targeted campers, firing off a paint
gun. One camper was hit in the leg. During the assault, 21-year-old
Mark Trail allegedly shouted obscene racial slurs, and told the
Jewish campers “I’m going to kill you, you […] Jews” and “Go back
where you came from.”
Camp Bonim’s youngest campers are just six years old.
The group returned in the middle of the night and attempted to run
down one camper with the truck, missing by just a few feet.
One day later, Spencer drove into a counselor from the camp outside a
local store, and broke his leg. He fled the scene, but was caught
later in the day.
Spencer has admitted to some of the charges against him, and two of
his accomplices have confessed to their role in all of the incidents
described. (IsraelNationalNews © 2011 07/27/12)
