Headline: Cross burning on black man's lawn leads to one arrest

At the end of the article this quote:

Quote:
Tony Lamanna, Spirit Lake police chief, said two tiki torches were used to form the cross between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. He said he didn't know if the cross burning was racially motivated.
(Emphasis mine.)

Wow. I know it's N Idaho and all, but gawd. Chief of Police? What year is this???? Absolutely unbelievable. I think we're devovling.

It has happen before were someone does something like this for "revenge" or other reasons. He is doing his job and being as nutrual as possible. It is like saying the alleged robber and the guy was caught on tape.

Or it could be he didn't want to arrest his good ole boy buddies on Hate Crime charges and put them in danger of much higher sentences.
