Wearing a slightly baggy suit, a maroon turban wrapped around his head, Maan Singh Khalsa looked across the courtroom at Judge Patricia Scanlon and wiggled his right hand.

The damage was obvious: Most of Khalsa’s pinky finger was missing.

"My attackers hit me with their fists, knocked off my turban, and yelled, ‘Cut his fucking hair.’

They yanked my hair through the window and used a knife to saw parts of it off. In the course of the attack, as I tried to protect my hair and my head, my right finger was stabbed, and eventually required amputation."

3. Trump supporters, by the "looks of them". I hope they like prison, with Bubba and his pals.

4. I considered myself an American like everyone else. I had never worried about being the victim

"I considered myself an American like everyone else. I had never worried about being the victim of prejudice. I enjoyed my life fully."

"As a Sikh, I believe that all of us are one human family, and that we must treat everyone as equals regardless of our many differences. Mr. Little and Mr. LeBlanc, I hope that one day you will come to share this view. I still consider you my brothers, and I hope that you will learn about me and my community, and one day consider me your brother, too."

Who decides who is American? People like LeBlanc and Little make America less great.
