Bacon Protests at a South Carolina Mosque

Mosque protesters in South Carolina have taken a unique approach.

A disturbing sign of intolerance at a Florence, SC mosque. Members say someone wrote the words "pig and "chump" in bacon outside the walkway earlier this week. It's especially offensive because most Muslims do not eat pig products. Darryl Hughee lives across the street from the Islamic Center. He says the center has been a positive influence on the community.

"Shame on them. Whoever did what they did, it has to be a mental thing, you know. I mean, kids will be kids though, you know what I'm saying." Hughee elaborates.

Now a Muslim civil rights and advocacy group is calling on the FBI to investigate.

Because the crime wasn't targeted to a specific individual, police are investigating this as a form of harassment rather than a hate crime.
