Duluth Cops Are Not the Sharpest Tacks in the Box

Police do not believe the burning of a nearly 120-year-old synagogue in Duluth, Minnesota, was a hate crime.

Investigators have no indication that the suspect arrested, [Some Asshole], was motivated by hate or bias, Duluth Police Chief Mike Tusken said in a Sunday news conference.
I am of the position that the default position for burning down a synagogue, let alone any other house of worship, is a hate crime unless there is strong evidence to the contrary.

Doesn’t seem like he was serious about it:

Authorities determined the point of the fire's origin was outside the building, Krizaj said. There was no indication that an accelerant was used, he said. "That's usually an indication of people's intent. If they want to start a fire, accelerants are usually a common theme that we would find."

I’ll leave arson investigations to the people that, you know, investigate arsons.
