Investigate Black Church Burnings as Terrorism

This petition had 50 supporters

In the last week, there have been five suspicious burnings of Black southern churches:  Briar Creek Road Baptist Church, Charlotte, NC; College Hill Seventh Day Adventist, Knoxville, TN; God's Power Church of Christ, Macon, GA; Greater Miracle Apostolic Holiness Church, Tallahassee, FL; and Glover Grove Baptist Church, Warrenville, SC. As a retired law enforcement officer, I know that local law enforcement agencies often lack the resources to investigate these incidents adequately. As a result, the people responsible for these acts of violence may never be brought to justice. In addition, swift action on the part of the United States Department of Justice may prevent this from happening in other communities. Please join me in calling on the United States Department of Justice to investigate these church burnings as acts of terrorism.
