Police ask Texas prosecutors to treat attempted drowning of 3-year-old child as a hate crime

 That's a horrifying incident, and it's good to see that the authorities are treating it seriously by considering it a hate crime. The fact that such racist remarks led to an attempt to harm a child is deeply disturbing. It's heartening, however, to see community leaders coming together to denounce the attack and offer support to the affected family. It's important for society to stand united against such acts of hate and violence.

The child’s mother told officers that Wolf had been asking her where she was from and if the two children playing in the pool were hers, police said. The mother told officers that after she answered, Wolf tried to grab the woman’s 6-year-old son but he pulled away from her grasp, causing a scratch on his finger. Police said that as the mother helped her son, Wolf grabbed the woman’s 3-year-old daughter and forced her underwater. The mother pulled her daughter, who was yelling for help and coughing up water, out of the pool, police said. Medics evaluated both children, who were cleared. Wolf has been released on bond. A call to her attorney was not immediately returned Monday. On Saturday, community leaders came together to denounce the attack on the child and how the woman treated the family. “The trauma and pain this has caused for the immigrant community broadly and Muslim community more specifically cannot be understated,” said state Rep. Salman Bhojani, whose district includes part of Euless.
