Mississippi Church Member Charged in 'Vote Trump' Arson

Source: ABC News

A Mississippi man arrested in the burning of an African-American church that was spray-painted with the words "Vote Trump" is a member of the congregation, the church's bishop said.

Andrew McClinton, 45, of Leland, Mississippi, was charged Wednesday with first degree arson of a place of worship, said Warren Strain, spokesman for the Mississippi Department of Public Safety. McClinton is African-American.

McClinton was arrested in Greenville, where Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church was burned and vandalized Nov. 1, a week before the presidential election.

Hopewell Bishop Clarence Green said McClinton is a member of the church. Green said he didn't know about the arrest until he was called by The Associated Press.

6. It does. When a liberal paints trump rules or whatever and burns a church

 

To make it look like a trump supporter. It makes us look bad but worse makes the job harder for another person who may have this happen.

8. It certainly could have been one of those right wing black people we see so often;

 

come on, you know exactly what he's talking about. Whenever stuff like this happens, it makes legit hate crimes suspect to the GP. "crying wolf" syndrome. And it happens too often
