‘BLACK LIVES MATTER’ Note Found Near Firebombed Cruiser…

The Daytona Beach Police Department may have been the target of anti-police backlash early Sunday morning when someone firebombed an unoccupied squad car parked in front of a mosque and left a note near the destroyed vehicle attributing the act to Black Lives Matter.

According to Police Chief Mike Chitwood, the incident took place about 2 a.m. That’s when someone set fire to the cruiser parked outside the Islamic Center at 347 S. Keech St. The vehicle was engulfed in flames and destroyed.

Chitwood said police found a note at the scene that read “Black Lives Matter A. Sterling P. Castile (Expletive removed) the police.”

It was not yet clear exactly what was used to burn the vehicle, but Chitwood said he assumes the culprits used a Molotov cocktail. He said the firebombing caused more than $20,000 in damage to the vehicle.

Imam Belal Alzuhiry Shemman, the Islamic Center’s religious leader, could not be reached.

    Or…the Black Lives Matter note could have been planted to place the blame on the organization for something they were not involved with. Fingerprinting the note may yield clues about who created it.

    I’m sure there are people who enjoy vandalizing things but they want someone else to get blamed. That may be true in this situation.

        Framing the innocent has happened before. Do you know for a fact that this act was committed by a member of Black Lives Matter? Jumping to conclusions is not an Olympic sport and it isn’t fair to accuse a group based on street trash. How do you know it wasn’t done by an Muslim sympathizer or by someone not affiliated with either group?

          HUH? are you insinuating Black Lives Matter ls an INNOCENT Organization????????? In the first place it is NOT an Organization, in the second place it is a murderous, violent H-A-T-E Group doing NO GOOD for anyone and ‘blacks’ in particular. Anything obama has involved himself in has continued to set racism back more than 60 yrs..

    The worst is yet to come, you better be prepared to defend truth, and justice for your families. White lives and all lives should matter. Blue lives matter.

    They say the black thug groups are teaming up with the cult groups, and both need to destroyed!

    Geese! This is getting to be status quo, and just one more reason to keep Clinton away from the white house. Oblahma has gone totally off the rails and Clinton has always been off the rails. They deserve each other.
