    Two Nova Scotia men charged after cross set on fire outside N.S. home

    AVONDALE, N.S. — Two young men have been arrested and charged in connection with a cross-burning in rural Nova Scotia on Sunday.

    RCMP say 20-year-old Nathan Rehberg and 19-year-old Justin Rehberg face charges of public incitement of hatred, mischief and uttering threats.

    The suspects, from Avondale, N.S., are due in court today in Kentville.

    An interracial couple said they awoke early Sunday to find a cross burning on the front lawn of their home in Newport and individuals yelling racial slurs.

    Shayne Howe, who is black, and Michelle Lyon, who is white, said they were afraid for their safety.

    RCMP say the two accused and the victims are known to each other and the incident was not a random act of violence.

    KKK stuff isn't isolated to the US, that's for sure. Bigots pop up everywhere.

    The outcome of this should be interesting. Hopefully this is dealt with forcefully enough to make other crackerjacks think twice.
