Arsonist strikes mosque in Escondido, Calif., refers to New Zealand massacre in note

Source: LA Times

An arsonist set a fire that blackened the walls of an Escondido mosque early Sunday and left a note on the house of worship’s driveway referencing a shooting rampage at two New Zealand mosques that left dozens dead, investigators said.

Several people who were inside the Islamic Center of Escondido on West 6th Avenue spotted the flames about 3:15 a.m. They managed to put out the fire before it caused any serious damage, Escondido Police Lt. Chris Lick said.

Officers and firefighters arrived soon afterward and quickly determined the fire was probably intentionally set. It was unclear what was used to set the blaze, and no suspect information was available.

Lick said investigators found a note on the driveway of the mosque that referred to the March 15 shootings at the Al Noor Mosque and the Linwood Islamic Centre in New Zealand that left 50 people dead.

1. I just read about this from the San Diego Free Press

but it had't been proven yet. San Diego isn't having a good day.

It seems that White Nationalists have been targeting their recruitment efforts on the students in the city's various colleges.

4. Any bets that this arsonist is just a spoiled kid?

15 years old at most, bored, decided to "have some fun?"
