Insane ‘Christian’ Woman Beats, Kicks, Stomps Jewish Neighbor: ‘You’d Better Accept Jesus’
A.G. heard Margurite Haragan banging on the her front window of her home in Boise, Idaho, while screaming, “You’d better believe in Jesus.” When she opened her front door to take down Haragan’s license number and demand she leave, you won’t believe what happened next.
Apparently, today’s right-wing “Christians” have made Jesus so flat-out unappealing to the American public, they now have to get converts the old fashioned way: by beating and torturing heretics into submission.
Ada County Prosecutor Dave Rothcheck told KTVB News Haragan reached in, slapped A.G. — who is Jewish — across the face, dragged her to the ground by her hair, and then launched a full-on assault.
“The defendant [Haragan] began kicking the victim in the stomach and thigh area. During this time the defendant was screaming at the victim that she better accept Jesus or she would not let up.”Haragan then stepped on A.G.’s neck while pulling her head up by the hair. To stop the attacks, Haragan’s victim finally renounced her Jewish faith and promised to accept Jesus Christ, and Haragan relented and “let her go.” But this so-called Christian’s victory proved short-lived.
On Wednesday, police predictably arrested Haragan on a felony warrant. A.G.’s real name has not been released, because police consider the attack to be a hate crime (as mentioned in another KTVB report).
The Idaho Statemanadds that Haragan’s harassment had been ongoing, and included phone calls and scratching “a phrase including ‘death’ on her [A.G.’s] mailbox.” In addition, they quote Roscheck telling the court Haragan had her foot on A.G.’s throat while saying she’d “better accept Jesus.”
Things with Haragan get even weirder.
At this point, you’d think Haragan would be locked up as a potential danger to herself and others pending her court date. Instead, things just keep getting weirder. KTVB reports that on Thursday, Haragan appeared in court, informed the judge she “did not understand what she was being charged with,” and insisted she didn’t need no stinkin’ lawyer.
Haragan then bizarrely told Judge John Hawley:
“I am a sworn-in deputy of Ada County and I also give my oath that what I say is legal and binding,”But KTVB called around, and of course found no record of Haragan working for Ada or surrounding counties in any sort of capacity.
Judge Hawley understandably overrode Haragan’s wishes and appointed a public attorney, set the bail to $100,000, and warned Haragan to stay away from A.G.
