On July 24, 2003 the Gazette reported that "Muslim community members, elected officials and civic associations, outraged about a cross burning at a College Park mosque, condemned the incident today as a cowardly act and evidence of a hate crime intimidation tactic... Prince George's County Councilman Thomas Hendershot (D-Dist. 3) of New Carrollton said such acts would not be accepted in the county, and the perpetrators will be caught."
