    Three Students Arrested for Setting Fire to Dorm Room Door of Conservative Student Leader

    Three Students Arrested for Setting Fire to Dorm Room Door of Conservative Student Leader

    “All three were arrested late Saturday and booked into the Orleans Justice Center jail”

    This happened at Tulane and the victim is the president of the Turning Point USA chapter there.

    FOX 8 reports:

    Tulane Police: 3 arrested after door to student’s dorm lit on fire

    Two Tulane University sophomores and a student visiting from another school are accused of setting the door to another student’s dorm on fire early Saturday (March 23), according to Mike Strecker, a spokesman for the school.

    Three people lit a sign on Peyton Lofton’s door on fire just after midnight, Strecker said, but the flames were quickly put out. No injuries were reported, he said, and the door only had “minor damage.”

    The incident was caught on security cameras, according to Strecker, and the students were identified as 21-year-old Robert Money and 20-year-old David Shelton. Strecker said the third person was identified as Naimi Okami, a 20-year-old Brown University student.

    All three were arrested late Saturday and booked into the Orleans Justice Center jail — each with one count of arson, online court records show. They all appeared in court the next day, where Orleans Parish Magistrate Commissioner Robert Jonathan Friedman set their bonds at $10,000 each. As of Sunday night, it appeared all three had been released on bail…

    Strecker confirmed Lofton is the president of Tulane’s chapter of the right wing group Turning Point USA as well as participating in a Libertarian organization called the Young Americans for Liberty.

    Arson is vandalism squared, it’s normally treated more seriously because the damage is potentially much greater, to the point of the entire building being destroyed, and can easily cause deaths.

    It doesn’t matter if these three “youts” now claim they only meant to scare their target, it doesn’t matter if they are idiots (facts already in evidence there) who didn’t understand how easily open flames in a structure can get out of control, they need to be stepped on and stepped on HARD.

    Does anyone else find it disturbing that Fox felt it necessary to describe Turning Point USA as a right-wing organisation? I thought it was just the Left that felt the need to point out groups that aren’t left-wing.

    Hey look…not a hoax, imagine that.

    For the sake of the sane and grounded of us, I think hate crime legislation needs to add political affiliation as a protected class.

    Setting a fire in an inhabited building in the wee hours of the morning – what could possibly go wrong?
