Man Accused Of Burning 3 Black Louisiana Churches Charged With Hate Crimes
The case of the three historically Black churches that have burned down in Louisiana took a turn toward justice yesterday.
According to APNews, the man who police believe is responsible for the fires, sheriff’s deputy’s son Holden Matthews, has been charged with hate crimes.
There is an inordinate amount of evidence that all points pretty strongly to Matthews being the firestarter. For one, police have evidence that Holden bought rags and gas cans just like the ones found at the crime scene. Holden also recorded a convo where he tells a friend about wanting to burn churches in addition to video and photos of the burning churches prior to the fire department arriving to put out the blaze.
Matthews plead not guilty on Monday, but again, the evidence against him appears to be so strong that he might as well just take his L. Police say that the 21-year-old had copies of the news reports in his phone, but here’s the real kicker, investigators say Matthews SUPERIMPOSED HIMSELF INTO THE NEWS REPORTS NEXT TO THE BURNING CHURCHES!
There is also video footage of a truck matching the description of Matthews’ vehicle at the crime scene.
The cherry on top is a text message from the aforementioned friend who asked specifically “Was that your work?”
Put this fool in gen pop on the Blackest most God-fearing tier in the state prison.
