Democratic race-baiters have received a huge blow this week after the person who set a major fire at the partially constructed Da Vinci apartment complex in Downtown LA after it was inspired by the BLM organization in 2014 was just sentenced to 15 years in jail.
When he was apprehended, Dawud Abdulwali explained that he started the fire die to his great admiration for the Black Lives Matter organization and his disdain toward police officers. Dawud plead no contest to one count of arson and confessed to using an accelerant to ignite the fire. He was also ordered to pay compensation that is expected to be somewhere around $100 million, as an addition to serving time in jail.
The blaze broke on December 7, 2014 and it razed the 7-story apartment complex. The fare also melted freeway signs and wrecked several other buildings nearby.
The blaze eventually resulted in damage somewhere between $20 and $30 million to the complex and another $50 million in damage made to the DWP facility. According to a probation report filed with the court, the apartment complex owner also endured about $100 million loss in potential revenue due to the fire.
Dawud’s former roommate, Edwyn Gomez, made a testified that he heard talk about looking for a way to retaliate for the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri in the summer of 2014. He remembered Dawud saying things like “Cops kill my people,” and “We should go do this, we should go burn some [expletive] down … We should go break some windows.”
“Thanks to the hard work of dozens of investigators and the dedicated staff of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, a man who set one of the most expensive and destructive building fires in the City’s history will serve a lengthy prison sentence,” said Los Angeles Fire Department Chief Ralph Terrazas.
This just confirms how detrimental fanatic race-baiters can truly be thanks to former president Obama’s rhetoric and that of his fellow Democrats.
