White woman BURNS 5 police cars during protest in support of George Floyd

White woman BURNS 5 police cars during protest in support of George Floyd
A white woman was arrested yesterday on five federal accounts of arson for allegedly setting five Seattle Police Department cars on fire during George Floyd protests in the city.

Margaret Aislinn Channon, 25, was arrested by federal authorities wearing full SWAT gear from her home in Tacoma after investigators say she was recorded setting fires in the vehicles by multiple cameras at the end of May.

US Attorney Brian T. Moran said Channon used some kind of flammable spray to start the fires.

‘This defendant was captured by multiple cameras using an accelerant, lit like a blowtorch, to start fires in five vehicles — putting the public at risk and creating the very real possibility of a structure fire amidst the throng of people protesting downtown,’ Moran said.

In her indictment, investigators recorded extensive details of the arsonist’s appearance.

‘She was wearing a white and black striped scarf-type face covering, a black shirt, black pants, light colored socks (that were mismatched), and black shoes,’ the indictment reads.

They noted that throughout the attacks the woman was wearing a stripy black t-shirt over her face.

Owing to ‘high-quality’ photographs taken by SPD at the scene, investigators were able to pick out a ‘distinctive’ tattoo of the woman’s left hand.

‘She had the letters “W-A-I-F” tattooed on the fingers of her left hand… The letters were oriented such that the bottom of the letters faced towards her fingertips,’ the indictment reads.

‘Also visible on the suspect’s left hand was a heart tattoo on her middle finger between the “A” and the fingertip.’

Channon’s tattoos were linked to a missing person’s case from Texas in 2019.

They found her social media accounts and then her address. After raiding the Tacoma home, investigators kept articles of clothing seen in the CCTV footage for evidence.

According to the indictment, three Seattle Police Department vehicles were targeted, including a Ford Transit Connect van, 2006 Dodge Caravan, 2009 Chevrolet Express van, which were unmarked but did contain a police radio. The other two vehicles were typical patrol cars.

Four of the vehicles were burned down to their metal frames. The other vehicle is also totaled but damaged less.

Felony arson carries a maximum 20-year sentence.

‘While we stand by every American’s Constitutional right to protest, when someone turns to violence, we will work tirelessly to investigate their crimes,’ Jonathan Blais, A

TF Acting Special Agent in Charge told KomoNews.

‘We are working shoulder-to-shoulder with our local, state and federal partners to bring those responsible for actions such as this to justice.’

Two ways Manchester United could line up with Donny Van de Beek transfer

Manchester United have emerged as frontrunners in the race to sign Ajax midfielder Donny Van de Beek.

The Guardian report that United are hopeful of signing the Dutch star who has attracted interest from several other elite clubs.

Van de Beek, 23, starred in the Ajax team that reached the Champions League semi-finals in the 2018/19 season and is one of Europe’s most talented young midfielders.

We looked at two ways United could line-up next season if they complete the signing of the versatile Dutchman.

This system would allow Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to accommodate each of his most potent attacking threats.

While Van de Beek is most effective in a box-to-box role, he has experience shielding the back four and could provide the platform for Paul Pogba to roam in a double midfield pivot.

Van de Beek made six appearances in the defensive midfield role for Ajax in the 2019/20 season and has the ability to operate as Solskjaer’s anchorman ahead of Nemanja Matic.

However, Matic offers a more experi…

De Gea hailed by Henderson but warns him for No. 1 spot battle

Dean Henderson has cautioned David de Gea he is aiming for his Manchester United place. The 23-year-old goalkeeper will retreat to Old Trafford after an exceptional loan spell at Sheffield United, determined to take the 1st spot off the Spaniard.

Academy alumnus Henderson recently signed a new six-year contract last month among connections to Chelsea. Thus, making it obvious he sees himself at Old Trafford for the long term.

“I’ll be moving back in the first day of pre-season and sweating my b******s off to get in that starting line-up because it’s something I’ve constantly required and I’m so close now. I have tremendous respect for David. He has been a magnificent goalkeeper for many years.

He’s been remarkable and that’s something I strive to be, to have a profession like his at the club. It’s down to me but I’m beneath no fantasies that I’m going to develop just sat on the bench. I need that game-time.” said Henderson.

Unfortunately, De Gea’s form has come into inquest over the last …

Big Brother Naija housemate, Nengi, on Sunday said she will find Ozo a Bayelsa wife.

Nengi said this when Ozo said he wanted to take her on a trip after the reality show.

Ozo, however, said he was not interested in another Bayelsa wife.

“I will find you a wife when we leave this place. I will find you someone like me from Bayelsa,” Nengi told Ozo.

But Ozo responded, “if I wanted someone else, I would have chosen.”

Nengi further stated that, “When we leave the house there will be a lot of girls interested in you and you won’t have my time.”

Agreeing that it was a possibility, Ozo insisted he had found something special in her.

Nengi had warned Ozo against mistaking their friendship for a love relationship.

She had maintained that she would not date anyone in the house but Ozo is still trying and working hard to see if she could change her mind.
