Al Sharpton blamed white devils for black churches that were going up in flames near Ferguson. Now, Sharpton and every other race baiter are shocked to see exactly who is responsible.
When historically black churches began going up in smoke this month there was wide spread speculation of racial hate crimes.
That conclusion seems to have been dispelled with the arrest of 35-year-old David Lopez Jackson, a black man with an extensive criminal history, in connection with the seven arsons between Oct. 8 and Oct. 22.
Many were quick to jump on the hate crime bandwagon before any of the facts were known now may have egg on their collective faces.
Now that Jackson has been arrested and, so far, charged with two counts of arson it will be interesting to monitor how those same voices react.
Jackson has been linked by forensic evidence to one of the church fires while video caught images of his vehicle near the scene of another, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Police Chief Sam Dotson said authorities were still determining a motive but said Jackson is also a suspect in the other 5 church fires.

A 7th STL black church burned last night. Where is the FBI? Or are they only called for white baseball fans? #WhoIsBurningBlackChurches
