Authorities in Phoenix are looking for a man caught on surveillance video torching a LGBT youth center — one year after he aged out of the program.

Darren William Beach Jr., 26, is being sought by police in connection to an intentionally set fire at the one.n.ten youth center in Phoenix on July 12. No injuries were reported, but some staffers at the youth center are “shaken” by the incident.

“Our youth whom we serve have been worried,” a statement on the center’s website reads. “Some are shaken. Our staff has been juggling the many issues that surrounded this loss with a great deal of professionalism, but also with heartache and long hours … Still, this news hurts.”

Beach began using the center’s service in 2013 and aged out in early 2016 once he turned 25, according to the center.

“Youth center”?

Sounds like a pedo playground.

Don’t know why arsonist is in scare quotes. The guy emptied a container of gasoline in the facility before igniting the fire. I can’t think of any way to describe this other than arson.

In broad daylight not even attempting to shield himself from the cams. Some more to this story methinks.

No WAY!!! A FAKE “hate crime”? What’ll the left think of next?

I loved this though: one.n.ten youth center. Yeah, one in ten, you keep telling yourselves that.

“Youth center”?

A "youth center" that allows 25-year-olds to be members. Placing "youth center" in scare quotes is absolutely appropriate.

No, the center is where gay teens go and talk to psychologist and psychiatrists, along with being around like minded people. The staff are screened to make sure they aren’t pedophiles....(a friend is bi (good kid, but I told him I’m not bi) and he accepts it) mostly at the center is trained staff...
