Mississippi Church Vandalized, Set on Fire
On Tuesday night, Hopewell Baptist Church was set ablaze and vandalized with the words “Vote Trump” written on the exterior wall of the building. Investigators are treating this act as a hate crime because they view it as an attempt to intimidate voters. Hopewell is a predominantly black church that is located in the city of Greenville, Mississippi where the population is seventy-seven percent black. The FBI is currently working conjointly with local, state and federal authorities to determine if any civil rights laws were violated. Greenville Police Chief, Delando Wilson, claimed, “no one has a right to try and pressure someone into the way they want to decide to vote in this election.”
