Molotov cocktails were used in this attack. Thankfully no one was hurt, but this still symbolizes the chaos that is going on in the states. What do you think will come of this conflict?
A squad car in Florida was set on fire with a Molotov cocktail in what appears to be more anti-cop backlash following the shootings of two black men that have sparked protests throughout the nation.
The police cruiser was parked in front of the Islamic Center of Daytona about 2:30am Sunday when it was set on fire.
The car was fully engulfed in flames when police firefighters arrived.
Fire crews responded and put the fire out. No one was injured.
Police said a note was found at the scene.
‘BLACK LIVES MATTER. A. Sterling. P. Castile,’ the note said, referencing the shootings of Alton Sterling, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Philando Castile in St. Paul, Minnesota.
‘F–k the police!!!’ the note concluded.
The burning comes amid rising tension nationwide following the shootings — which were the impetus behind the massacre of five cops in Dallas.
Also Sunday, a gunman shot and killed three law enforcement officers in Baton Rouge.
Despite the note, police Chief Mike Chitwood cautioned against assigning blame until a thorough investigation takes place, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reported.
Detectives are yet to conclude if this firebombing was the work of actual anti-police protesters.
