ENDICOTT, NY – A family who lost their home to fire on Wednesday is saying that they were targeted because of their support for police.
The East Main St. fire started at around 1:30 am on Wednesday. The fire destroyed the first floor of the multi-story home, according to firefighters.
WBNG 12, NY is reporting that the family flew a “Blue Line Flag” on the front of their house alongside an American flag.
While fire crews were putting out the blaze, a family member who was in the home at the time of the fire had gone around back to check out the damage. That’s when the family member found a disturbing message.
Whoever had started the fire had scrawled “Lie with pigs, fry like bacon” on siding on the back of the home. The piece of siding was removed, apparently by investigators as possible evidence.
The family member told WBNG 12 that the fact that they flew a Blue Lives Matter flag, and that someone wrote the anti-cop message on their home while torching it was no coincidence. The family member believes they were deliberately targeted.
On Thursday, New York State Police stated that the fire is being investigated as “suspicious.”
The family, who asked not to be identified, had returned from vacation earlier this week.
If the family was indeed targeted for their support of police, this is an act of domestic terrorism by Black Lives Matter.
Remember, Hillary Clinton actively supports Black Lives Matter. If she’s elected, acts of terror like this will be commonplace. We need a law & order president like Trump if it is ever going to be stopped.
