Man Douses Phoenix LGBT Youth Center. Lights It On Fire. All Caught On Camera.

With the hatred toward our community growing every day and with every tweet, we have to keep our eyes open.  See something. Say something. 

Sad news out of Phoenix shows some of that hatred is leading to people, even our own, becoming more upset and turning those feelings into a physical act.

Police in Phoenix are looking for a man who was caught on camera setting a fire at an LGBT youth center.

The man is seen walking into the building and pouring some sort of liquid on the floor.

Seconds later, he steps outside and the room goes up in flames.

Police believe the suspect used to be a client at the youth center, but aged out of eligibility when he turned 25.

No one was injured but a lot of equipment and products were burned in the fire.

 

What drove this individual to do this? 

Was it because he aged out of the system?

Was he not wanting to leave the comfort of the center and go into the great big anti-LGBT world?

Once found, we hope he receives the help he needs.

Stay strong guys.
