HATE CRIME?

Man Arrested for Mississippi ‘Vote Trump’ Church Arson

A Mississippi man has been arrested in the November 1 burning and vandalism of his own predominately black church. Hopewell Baptist Church was seriously damaged after it was set on fire and spray-painted with the words "Vote Trump," leading to speculation that the arson was a hate crime. Police arrested Andrew McClinton, 45, on one count of first degree arson at a place of worship. McClinton is a member of the church, authorities told CBS.
