Wednesday: Man Charged With Burning Down Church and Spray Painting “Vote Trump”
Remember when a predominantly African-American church was burned to the ground in Greenville, Mississippi, just a week before the election? In addition to committing arson, the perpetrator had spray painted “Vote Trump” along the side of the church. Mainstream and social media was abuzz, casting a multitude of aspersions on Trump voters they felt were committing racially-motivated crimes.
An African-American man has just been arrested and charged with burning Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church in Greenville, Miss. last month and defacing its outer walls with “Vote Trump” graffiti.
The Mississippi state police arrested Andrew McClinton, who is, ironically, a 45-year-old member of the church, on Wednesday and charged him with first-degree arson of a place of worship.
Republicans formed a GoFundMe account that raised more than $240,000 to repair the facility.
