'Kill Zimmerman' Painted on Business Before Arson in Downingtown
WPVI-TV ^ | Monday, July 15, 2013 | Sarah Bloomquist

Posted on 07/16/2013 5:57:01 AM PDT by kristinn

Police in Chester County, Pennsylvania are investigating an act of vandalism with racial overtones, possibly connected to the fallout from the verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial.

Photographs obtained by Action News show what firefighters found Sunday night when they responded to a fire at ProSigns, a company that manufactures commercial signs for businesses, in the 200 block of Boot Road.

You can clearly see the words "Kill Zimmerman" painted in red paint on the front wall.

The graffiti was discovered when firefighters arrived to extinguish a blaze around 11:20 p.m. Sunday.

The fire was brought under control quickly and no one was hurt. Considering the graffiti, investigators immediately suspected the blaze was intentionally set.

On Monday, the fire was ruled an arson, fueled by an unknown accelerant.

The government is working hard to divide the country in the effort to divide and conquer the country.

That’s pretty close to West Chester and Malvern, which are nice areas.

It is time for all of us who are not part of this lynch mob to “stand our ground”. Support an innocent man and the rule of law, not the mob.

They should join the lawsuit against pResident Odumbass and Holder for inciting riots

Obama and Holder spent $5million to organize protests DURING legal proceedings

Oh no! Not again! It’s “THE BLOB”! Get our of the diner! And the movie theater! And the supermarket! And the skating rink!

RUN!

(Sorry, “The Blob”, 1958, starring Steve McQueen, was filmed in Downigtown.)

The “possibly connected” is pretty accurate.

If I was going to burn my own business for the insurance money something Zimmerman-related would be pretty useful to paint on the side of the building.

About 6 miles from me. The spraypainting looks to me like it was done by a girl. Arson is serious. I hope they throw the book at them when caught.

Only "possibly" if you postulate that there is some other zimmerman being referenced.

It’s an historical fact that Charles Manson’s stated goal was to start a race war in America - which he obviously failed to do.

So I think we’re safe in saying that Hussein has nearly succeeded in doing that which Manson was unable to do.

One thing that makes me cringe about sports in when ESPN or reporters call select athletes by their first names: LeBron, Danica, Carmelo, Manny, Pedro etc... To me it is unprofessional. Same here. Notice Martin is called by his first name and Zimmerman by his last name? It is another way to make Martin seem innocent and Zimmerman the bully.

Probably some upper middle class white kid trying to be “street” and flopping.

Nobody is really outraged at this verdict outside some crack heads in the hood.

And the text shows signs of cursive ability. Must be a white liberal trying to defraud his insurance company...

I'd look REAL hard at this business' books.

It's all about money and power. Always is. Nothing new under the sun.

"How long halt ye between two opinions?
If the LORD be God, follow Him:
but if Baal, then follow him"

I wonder how many folks have cashed in on this nonsense?

“Possibly connected” is true enough. If I squint hard enough and let my mind connect the dots, I can see “Bill Zimmerman.” Who knows? Maybe that’s Sarah Bloomquist’s boyfriend.

Gotcha. I’ve never been to Coatesville. I stick to the areas that are largely my demographic type.

That’s the first thing I thought of, too. The printing is just too nicely done to be a yute from the hood.

Notice Martin is called by his first name and Zimmerman by his last name?

This has been remarked upon many times on FR. That's the Stylebook (A very real thing reporters use). First names are used for minors, last names for adults over 18. As for the sports figures, I agree with you and I really dislike the practice. It's because they're weird names like "Lebron" or "Danica." You don't see the convention used when the name is "Fred."
