A fire that started around 1:30am on 410 East Main St. in Endicott, NY is being investigated as arson. The owners believe that they know the arsonist’s motivation. The family flies a “Blue Lives Matter” flag on the front of their house.
According to Blue Lives Matter, An anonymous family member told WBNG that after the fire was started, a family member went around the back of the home and saw a message written on the siding, “Lie with pigs, fry like bacon.”
The family said that they have a “Blue Lives Matter” flag on the front of their house next to an American Flag. The flag appears to be the popular Blue Line Flag to show support for law enforcement.
The siding has since been removed from the side of the home, presumably by investigators.
It appears that this family was specifically targeted in a hate crime against law enforcement. The message on the side of the house not only gives a motive for the property destruction, it suggests that the suspect was actually trying to murder the occupants of the residence.
The family is fortunate that they were able to escape the fire unharmed.
Supporters for groups like Black Lives Matter have been trying to intimidate law enforcement and their supporters. This is the first case that we know of, outside of a riot, where an arson targeted somebody specifically for supporting law enforcement. These criminals are trying to intimidate us into backing down so that they can push their agenda without resistance.
We will continue to fly our flags and defy these terrorists who are attacking law enforcement.
