Three Muslim-American citizens are in critical condition after a devoted Donald Trump supporter set fire to their mosque during an afternoon prayer session.
The suspect, Jonathan Greensboro, is a 49-year-old resident of Bristol, Kansas. Police arrested him early Monday morning shortly after they found evidence linking him to the crime.
Associated Media Coverage reports that Greensboro, who is referred to as a “loner” with “far-out political ideas” by his neighbors, matches the description of a middle-aged Caucasian man wearing dark blue jeans, a black hooded sweatshirt and black baseball cap captured on security footage. In addition, a duffel bag containing those clothes was found by police in his pickup truck.
According to the time-stamp on the security camera belonging to a nearby liquor store, the accused can be seen exiting the mosque at approximately 1:31 PM. Shortly after the man on the film left the mosque, flames and smoke could be seen through the house of worship’s front door. At the time of the arson, seven Muslim-American citizens were praying inside. Sadly, by the time they realized the mosque was on fire, the foyer was engulfed in flames.
The individuals had moments to try and make their way outside, but their options were limited due to the mosque’s front (and only) door. Three men were immediately engulfed in flames and trapped under debris for approximately 7 minutes until emergency fire and rescue teams arrived on scene. Authorities relay that the anonymous men were rushed to the hospital, but are still in critical condition.
When Greensboro was taken into custody, he pleaded innocent. However, he also had this disturbing message to relay:
“Trump will pardon me once he’s president” and “I’m not saying I did anything, but sometimes you have to crack a few eggs to make an omelet”.
According to the accused’s 39-year-old neighbor, he’s always given her the creeps. She told the media:
“He always gave me the creeps, I cringed every time he peeled out of his driveway in his pickup truck with the giant ‘Trump 2016’ sticker on the rear window”.
There is a reason the collective hacktivist group Anonymous declared war on Donald Trump, the fear-mongering Republican presidential candidate nominee. America can not be made great through division and hatred; unity through acceptance and collaboration will be what sets the nation free from corporate enslavement and ignorance.
