Oklahoma Man Sentenced to Life in Prison for Killing Neighbor in Hate Crime

CNN’s Ralph Ellis reports, “Stanley Vernon Majors, the Oklahoma man who gunned down his Lebanese neighbor in what prosecutors said was a hate crime, has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.” Stanley Majors had harassed the Jabara family for years before murdering Khalid Jabara in August 2016. Ellis writes, “The Jabara family previously told CNN that Majors would stand on the property line between their homes and shout, ‘dirty Arabs!’ ‘Mooslems!’ and ‘dirty Lebanese.’” Ellis notes, “The Jabaras actually were Christians who fled civil war and religious persecution in Lebanon decades ago.”
