Three people have been arrested in connection with the suspected arson of a dorm room at Tulane University belonging to a student who is a member of Young Americans for Liberty (YAL).
“Robert Money, 21; David Shelton, 20; and Naima Okami, 20, face counts of aggravated arson, said Blake Arcuri, general counsel of the Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office, which runs the jail,” according to The New Orleans Advocate.
The student, Peyton Lofton, and his group, YAL, suspect that the alleged arson was politically motivated. Lofton has been doxed online by leftist radicals prior to the attack, a common tactic used by groups like Antifa.
Lofton was reportedly not in the room when incident occurred, but his roommate Jackson Arnold was present.
“The fire alarm went off, I was in my room, I opened my door, and the sign on the front of my door was on fire,” Arnold told Breitbart. “So I blew [the fire] out and then left the building with everyone else.”
“One week before the arson took place, Lofton said that signs began to appear on Tulane’s campus revealing the names of students involved with the school’s YAL group and accusing them of being ‘racist, misogynistic and intolerant’ individuals who make ‘offensive jokes,'” the Breitbart report said.
The trio of suspected arsonists was arrested by the Tulane University campus police.
“Louisiana law defines aggravated arson as intentionally setting a fire where it is foreseeable that human life will be endangered. It can carry between six and 20 years in prison upon conviction,” according to The Advocate report.
Tulane’s Director of Public Relations Michael Strecker said that the universities investigation into the matter is ongoing.

BLM Supporter Arrested for Killing a Police Officer As His Mother Posts About the Crime on Facebook
Henry Washington is charged with murder.
An Arizona man has been arrested and charged with homicide in the shooting death of a Bothell, Washington police officer, with his own mother posting about her son’s admission of the crime on Facebook within hours of his arrest on Tuesday.
Officer Aaron Snell of the Bothell Police Department identified Officer Jonathan Shoop, 32, as the deceased following a shootout in which Shoop sought to pull over the driver of a Pontiac G6 on Monday night. The driver of the vehicle allegedly stepped out and began opening fire at the police SUV conducting the traffic stop, later fleeing Highway 522 on foot.
Officers responding to the scene found two police officers wounded by gunfire. Snell, who had joined the Bothell Police in 2019, died of his wounds. Another officer was wounded in the shootout, but is expected to survive.
Law enforcement later arrested a suspect, 37-year old Henry Washington, as he was allegedly hiding on the roof of a small business a short distance away from the highway shootout location. Washington was injured, and was later charged with homicide, vehicular assault, and felony assault.
Police scanner audio reveals that Washington had supposedly called a hospital in Arizona, admitting that he had killed a police officer and needed medical treatment.

Washington is a supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement, judging from his affiliation with the movement on his Facebook profile picture.
In a strange twist, an account belonging to Carolyn Washington, who identifies as Washington’s mother, posted that her son had killed a police officer on her public account early on Wednesday morning, asking for prayers in the wake of her son’s crime.
Another of Washington’s Facebook photos shows the man wielding a firearm in an unsafe manner, pointing it at a cameraman who is taking his picture.
Washington has been denied bail at his first court appearance for the triple felony charges, and is currently being detained at the King County Jail.
Officer Shoop was a Coast Guard veteran who leaves behind two brothers, his mother, and his girlfriend.
