  • Refugee allegedly sets hotel on fire, draws swastika to get new room

    04/12/2016 3:31:55 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 7 replies
    Anything for a room with a view! The blaze on Thursday destroyed parts of the Sponsheim district hotel, which is used to house and process migrants in Bingen am Rhein in southwest Germany, according to the UK Express. The 26-year-old Syrian — who had been living at the asylum center for six months — told people he was fed up with living in the cramped quarters, the paper reported. German authorities assumed it was a racist attack — sparking outrage among local residents, according to local media reports. But the bad hotel guest, whose name has not been released, had...

    Onlookers applauded as a suspected arson fire destroyed a planned refugee shelter in eastern Germany, police said Sunday. The roof of the former hotel Bautzen, in the eastern state of Saxony, was undergoing renovation when a fire broke out overnight. Police said that no one was injured but reported that bystanders “commented with derogatory remarks” and showed “unashamed joy” as firefighters struggled to subdue the flames. Police forces ordered three people to leave the scene for obstructing emergency services and detained two “intoxicated 20-year-old locals” for ignoring the order.

Under torture he admitted to committing the arson last July - but he was not indicted for doing so, showing how the torture induced false confessions.

    As protests continued to escalate this weekend over the death of Freddie Gray, whose spine was allegedly severed while in police custody, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake made the unlikely request that her police department “give those who wished to destroy space to do that.” This concept was expectedly mind-blowing to Rush Limbaugh, who called it “one of the most disqualifying statements ever made by a politician,” adding, “I mean, there’s no rational explanation for that.” The conservative radio host went on to say, “I don’t pretend to know what goes on in Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s mind.” But then, he quickly added,...

    A firefighter tackled a woman allegedly trying to set a person on fire in Mill Valley, and investigators are wondering if she might be responsible for a number of other crimes. Nai Feuy Saelor, 24, of Richmond was booked Sunday on charges of arson, assault with a caustic chemical and vandalism counts, according to Marin County jail records. Officers said an off-duty Marin County firefighter saw a woman throwing lighter fluid on a 50-year-old woman off Panoramic Highway on Mount Tamalpais. He then tackled the woman before she could set the victim on fire. "The sheriff's department took its samples...

    The explosion of hatred and threats against a family owned Indiana pizza restaurant who said they wouldn't cater a gay wedding have forced them to go into hiding and they may leave town permanently. A northern Indiana pizza shop that came under fire after its owners said their religious beliefs wouldn't allow them to cater a gay wedding is closed indefinitely, and its operators say they've gone into hiding. Memories Pizza in Walkerton faced criticism this week after co-owner Crystal O'Connor expressed support for a new Indiana religious objections law. The Facebook and Yelp pages for the restaurant about 20...

    Well, that didn't take long. The tolerance brigades are calling for the death of the proprietors of a small pizza restaurant in a sleepy Indiana town. All of the hubbub that has spawned over the last three days has spun well out of control for those that wanted to make the pizzeria an example to be shunned. However, some have taken it way too far already: they´ve raised funds for the stupid gayhaters of #MemoriesPizza let´s raise funds to kill them all !!! take you gun and kill them now — Al Gringo (@Al_Gringo) April 3, 2015 #MemoriesPizza If conservatives...

    Authorities have surveillance footage showing the suspected arsonist in last December's spectacular downtown L.A. apartment complex fire parking his vehicle on the 110 Freeway and walking into the half-built structure with cans of fuel, a fire official told a community group.. Los Angeles Fire Department Battalion Chief Steve Ruda last week informed members of Echo Park's neighborhood council of new details about the fire, which caused tens of millions of dollars in damage. He said the suspect was still at large. Officials have offered a $170,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the arsonist behind the...

    As Al Sharpton ran for mayor of New York City in 1997 and for president in 2003, fires at his offices reportedly destroyed critical financial records, and he subsequently failed to comply with tax and campaign filing requirements. As I write today at National Review, investigators deemed the 1997 fire at Sharpton’s campaign headquarters “suspicious” from the start. It began at a hair-and-nail salon one floor below, and FDNY photos show both traces of an incendiary puddle and what appears to be a singed rag next to a fuse box.

    As Al Sharpton ran for mayor of New York City in 1997 and for president in 2003, fires at his offices reportedly destroyed critical financial records, and he subsequently failed to comply with tax and campaign filing requirements. The first fire began in the early hours of April 10, 1997, in a hair-and-nail salon one floor below Sharpton’s campaign headquarters at 70 West 125th Street. From the start, investigators deemed the fire “suspicious” because of “a heavy volume of fire on arrival” and because many of the doors remained unlocked after hours, according to the New York Fire Department’s fire-and-incident...

    Flanked by clergy from a cross-section of Houston's religious community, leaders of an Islamic religious center Friday asked prosecutors to drop the felony charge lodged against a homeless man accused of setting one of their buildings on fire. "We always preach forgiveness," said Ahsan Zahid, assistant imam at the Quba Islamic Institute. "Our God is forgiving. Our prophet was always forgiving, and God tells us we should do as we expected to be treated by others. We should forgive, and that is the request we made." Leaders of the institute, at 730 FM 1959 in the city's southeast side,made their...
