Graffiti at arson scene referenced Zimmerman

DOWNINGTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Investigators in suburban Philadelphia say the words “Kill Zimmerman” were found spray-painted on the side of a building set on fire a day after the verdict was announced in the Trayvon Martin trial in Florida.

Neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman was acquitted Saturday in the 2012 fatal shooting of Martin, who was unarmed. The verdict has sparked protests, vigils and arrests across the country.

The Daily Local News reports investigators in East Caln Township say the fire was set at a sign store Sunday night and has been ruled arson. Prosecutors say the words “Kill Zimmerman” were written in red spray-paint on the building. No arrests have been announced.

The investigation is ongoing and it wasn’t immediately clear if the business was targeted. Damage is estimated at $500,000.

This culture seems only supports laws that are in their favor and ignore the law in all other circumstances. SOP. I remember all the riots the whites had when OJ was acquitted and the graffiti the whiteys wrote... NOT! Amazing difference in actions and thinking huh. The law spoke try listening for a change

Don't ya just love when these blacks tear apart their own neighborhoods? Thanks to Obama there were plenty of minorities that could miss work in order to participate in these riots. Great memory of Trayvon Martin too. Stealing, Rioting, Thugging, just like Trayvon was probably getting ready to do as he had no business being in a guarded community. Too bad we'll never get to see what kind of pillar of society this goof would have turned out like. T-r-a-y-v-o-n. thieving, raping , arsonist, young, violent, obnoxious, non-productive.

Check the ashes. Maybe burning down a building brought Trayvon back.
