Prop 8 Hate Crime?

Where is this guys tolerance?

CARLSBAD, Calif.—An elderly Carlsbad couple was punched by a neighbor during an angry confrontation over Proposition 8 yard signs.

Lt. Neil Galluci says 53-year-old Lawrence Pizzicara was arrested Monday night and booked for investigation of elder abuse and battery causing great bodily injury.

Investigators say the couple—a 76-year-old man and his 77 year-old wife—had placed a "Yes on Prop. 8" sign in their yard. Tuesday's ballot proposition would amend the state constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman.

The lieutenant says the couple's neighbor then allegedly placed a "No on Prop. 8" sign on the couple's property and a fight broke out.

Paramedics treated the couple.
