    Allegedly.

    Whoever did it should be imprisoned, and be made work 10 hours a day cleaning the streets.

    To be fair, it could also be horrible kids/non Trump supporting adults who just wanted to divert blame.

    Either way, vandalizing churches is definitely the act of bad hombres!

    Well judging how Hillary and Podesta operate it was probably Clinton supporters posing as Trump supporters causing mayhem. like for real!

    I would not jump to the conclusion that it was Trump supporters just because that was written on the walls. Often enough, people do things like that to divert attention. So, sure, it could be, but, you never know without a careful (arson in this case) investigation. Hopefully the perpetrators made some dumb mistake. Here is a scary one:

    A few years ago, I read about the story of the girl who was lit on fire, with KKK messages written in response to the attack. Turns out, she lit herself on fire and created a hoax situation. Really, really messed up story.

    My immediate reaction to the first news was outrage at her being attacked. When I found out she had done it to herself, it's hard to explain the reaction, but basically, I just tossed up my hands and checked out of engaging these types of stories ever again.

    Probably done by a child of one of the church members who was hoping an investigation would close the church this Sunday. Hell, Hillary probably paid the kid to do it.

    It's probably fake. Meanwhile, real Democrats are actually firebombing Republican campaign offices...

    How do you know "real Democrats" firebombed the office in North Carolina? No arrests have been made.

    If the church vandalism is fake, why can't the destruction of the North Carolina office also be fake?

    Of course, we'll have to see how Republicans respond.

    When the NC GOP office was destroyed, Democrats created a GoFundMe campaign and raised $13,000 to rebuild it. Any one want to take a bet on whether Republicans create a similar effort?

    Nope. definitely real.

    While the first shot in retort it to blame the aggregator, it always helps to go into the article (in this case, the one at HuffPo) and see if there is any underlying information on it.

    From that, we have the local news:

    http://www.clarionledger.com/story/...rump-painted-burned-black-church-ms/93161132/

    So with a local source there, and more in-depth pictures of the crime, it definitely is real.

    BTW: was there any outcome of that firebombed Republican office and evidence linking to Democrats?

    BL.

    Just seeing how many people who were so quick to condemn the Democrats out of hand would do the same for themselves when the ball's in their court.

    The honest truth of the matter is that we don't know what's real, and what's not. Both could be entirely real acts of honest hate, both could be staged for sympathy, or we could have a mix and match of each.

    Probably not, because that'd only serve to case even more immature little dolts to go mad. This is a storm we're going to have to ride.

    The scary thing is, this is far from over. If Trump wins, I'm sure we'll see a surge in minority action. If Hillary wins, the same can probably be said of the far right folk. I think this and the Republican office firebombing are but a taste of things to come. People are just too angry for things to go otherwise smoothly.

    why not? plenty have pretended there are crimes committed against them hoping to cash out.

    So, someone that would burn a church in a black community... which candidate running do you think they support?

    I get your point, but this is a case where anyone that has the motivation to engage in racially harmful and divisive behavior like we see in the OP is only going to support one of the candidates ... and that candidate isn't going to be Hillary.

    that depends on WHO burned that church. as said many do indeed commit crimes against themselves just to get a pay out.

    In other words, hold fire until the facts can be determined.

    And that said, the same thing should be said about the aforementioned Republican office being firebombed.

    Should not both incidents have that luxury, instead of asking for time in one and immediately blasting the opposite party in the other?

    this is Murika, where perception is reality. by all means, fire away at whatever perception there is regarding who burned it
