Sharmeka Moffitt, 20, is recovering today after three men burned and attacked her while writing the letters “KKK” on the hood of her car.
Police believe Moffitt was doused in a flammable liquid and set afire.
Trooper Albert Paxton said Moffitt, who is in critical condition, suffered extensive burns below her neck on her chest and back all the way down to her calves.The attack happened Sunday evening at Civitan Park in Winnsboro, LA while she was walking in the park on a paved trail.
"The FBI is investigating whether the attack was a hate crime, Winnsboro Police Chief Kevin Cobb said."
Investigating? Here reactions to this:
"WTF!!!!! Deciding whether the attract was a hate crime is a rush to judgement, when they inscribed KKK on her car!!! Call me crazy, but if THAT ALONE isn't proof enough, then I don't know what is!!! IN THE NAME OF JESUS I ASK YOU LORD TO EXPOSE THOSE MEN WHO ATTACKED HER!!"
"What the F you mean investigate "if" this is a hate crime?"
"On the video, the news anchor implied that the rush to judgement was unfortunate, and said he was waiting to talk to the victim's relatives in order to "get to the bottom of this." What exactly is HE implying? Why would talking to relatives get to the bottom of her being doused & set afire? Does he believe they did it, know who did it, and it was not racially motivated or a hate crime?"
"It's a hate crime duh!"
"this is ridiculous I can't believe this is still happening, smh"
" I hope the FBI do more than investigate, call it what it is, A HATE CRIME! And bring those responsible for this heinous act to justice."
This is a HATE-CRIME! Stop investigating!
