There have been at least seven fires at black churches in states spanning from Ohio to Georgia. At least three have already been confirmed as arson. While we’re not seeing much in the way of arrests in those cases, police in Colorado did arrest a black man for leaving “biased” signs near black churches.
Broughton told KRDO-TV that he posted the signs around town to let people know how corrupt the police and city council were. He didn’t explain why notes were left near black churches.
