Might be an insurance job.  I have not looked at the details but with all these small businesses and restaurants not making money - I have to assume there are a shiat-ton of insurance jobs (especially arson).

mrshowrules: Might be an insurance job.  I have not looked at the details but with all these small businesses and restaurants not making money - I have to assume there are a shiat-ton of insurance jobs (especially arson).


This event looks to me like something that has facial credibility.

If it was an insurance job, I might expect to see something more like total destruction.  First, because insurance companies can be fickle.  So you want some security that the insurance investigator is not going to simply going to look at this and say "you could clean this all up for about 3 grand."  Then, you don't have enough cash to escape whatever financial problems you're in, but you also don't have a restaurant to dig yourself out of that hole.  You want to avoid that.  Second, insurance fraud is a heavy, heavy crime.  So people who do it are less inclined to use half measures.  Either you go all in, in the hopes of destroying any evidence that you were associated with the crime, or you chicken out and do something superficial and stupid.

Yes, I too, agree that we must immediately paint the victims as the most reasonable suspects and thank the very small Santa Fe police department for showing up at all knowing they were all tied up with that huge robbery call. They were obviously on to the scam without even needing to check it out.

/wtf?

Someone claiming it's a Hindu symbol in three two

IRTFA. In fact I've read several of articles about this. They had a set-to a week or two ago with a white supremacist that tried to park his truck in their parking lot and leave to go protest the protesters. He swore he'd be back. That's the kind of stupid ass who thinks that Hindus and ISIS are the same thing. They've got his license plate and driver's license number, and the police came so the police know who he is. If I was a detective, the first person I'd go see would be him and his buddies.

Well, it is, but no Hindu would think spraying it on something is defacement.  It would be like Jesuits spraying a cross on a church.

Clearly a bunch of ANTIFA bought MAGA hats and confederate flags and went off to paint Nazi symbols and hate messages to discredit the love and kinship that Trump fosters out into the world,

or something.

I dunno, even the lies aren't really try harding anymore, but people still deny the most basic and obvious conclusion because it's still easier to accept the comfort that the entire world is wrong, then accept that maybe, just maybe, voting for Trump was a terrible idea, or that even worse.... they might be terrible people.

So instead, everyone else must be wrong, they have to be, because the alternative is much worse on a personal level.

Yep.  Never underestimate those insurance adjusters.  If they aren't getting kickbacks from specific roofers or contractors, they will lowball it as much as possible.  Assuming they don't declare the damages preexisting or not applicable to coverage in the policy.  Their number one job is to make sure their company pays as little as possible, and only the most naive of business owners would not know this.

There are red hatters in this state.  Most are in the southeast, but there are unfortunately plenty elsewhere.

I am afraid for minorities in the USA. One part of me thinks BLM is the USA's salvation, the other part of me thinks I should be working hard to get them out of the USA because shiat like this, during police riots, means there's no coming back.

Agreed. Sounds like the mortgage rubbed up against the insurance policy. We'll need evidence that this isn't the case before we jump to other conclusions.

Which is completely in line with Sikh teaching / practice.

This case doesn't seem like a scam.

It makes me happy knowing how miserable these white supremacist f&cks are. They're so proud of their biggest achievement, being born a certain way, meaning they know they have accomplished nothing in their entire life. Then they get obsessed with showing the world how proud they are of accomplishing nothing, and broadcast that they can't even draw a stupid symbol with six lines.

Sadly, you may be right.

Its not beneath some people. I knew a guy hit something with his car, and did some serious damage to his car this way. Instead of owning up to it he trashed his own car, spray-painted racist words on his car (he's Asian), and then called the cops reporting it stolen.

Bragged about it, too.

What's really sad is that this blame the victim crap is so prominent in this thread.  It's almost like you can't believe that there are racists running around with the sly blessing of the crapgibbon in chief causing trouble in Perfect America or something.
