The left has ramped up their coverage of "hate crimes" since Trump's election. Many of these have been hoaxes. The latest hate crime hoax was caught on video.
The most recent "hate crimes" came from New Jersey. Five black churches were vandalized. The Left portrayed this as racial targeting and heaped sympathy on the minorities for it. These "hate crimes" were another tool by the left to helped further the racial divide in the country.
Only one issue with this. These "hate crimes" were discovered to be a hoax. It turns out five black men vandalized five black churches.
There were five churches that had their stained glass shattered and their church signs destroyed.
What demonic spirit would possess someone to do this to our church sign and also the other African American churches in Morristown?
New Jersey Governor-elect Phil Murphy described it as "cowardly acts" and there was an investigation underway.
Disgusted by reported vandalism of African-American churches across Morristown. These cowardly acts will not shake our faith. They will renew our determination to come together as one NJ. -PM

The suspect, Zuri C. Towns, apparently attended services at one of the churches as a child. He's been charged with four counts of fourth-degree criminal mischief and one count of third-degree criminal mischief, per NJ.com.
"As a result of the investigation, no evidence was obtained that would indicate this was a bias incident which legally requires purpose to intimidate a person or group based upon their protected class," said a news release from authorities.
Here's the church's pastor talking about the vandalism, over the weekend:
But then the surveillance video surfaced. The Church of God in Chris for All Saints showed Towns throwing rocks at the church:
