    Suspect is charged with arson attacks on predominantly black churches in St Louis... as police say race hate was NOT the motive
    • David Lopez Jackson, 35, was charged Friday in St Louis Circuit Court with two counts of second-degree arson
    • He allegedly set fire to Ebenezer Lutheran Church and New Life Missionary Baptist Church in St Louis
    • St Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said investigations continue into the five other fires and Jackson is a suspect in all of them
    • The fires were set between October 8 and October 22 in St Louis and nearby Jennings
    • Five of the congregations are predominantly black, one is racially mixed and one is mostly white

    Authorities charged a 35-year-old black St Louis man with arson for two of the seven church fires in a predominantly African-American part of the St Louis region.

    However federal investigators said there is no evidence of a hate crime.

    David Lopez Jackson, 35, was charged Friday in St Louis Circuit Court with two counts of second-degree arson in the fires at Ebenezer Lutheran Church and New Life Missionary Baptist Church, both in the city.

    St Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said investigations continue into the other fires - three in St Louis, two in nearby Jennings - and Jackson is a suspect in all of them.

    The fires were set between October 8 and October 22. Five of the congregations are predominantly black, one is racially mixed and one is mostly white.

    David Lopez Jackson was charged Friday in St Louis Circuit Court with two counts of second-degree arson in connection to two church fires. He is a suspect in five other fires in the St Louis area

    The fires spurred a hate-crime investigation to determine if the attacks were motivated by race or religion.

    But the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives downplayed that possibility in a statement on Friday.

    'There appears to be no indication of a hate crime or sign... any one particular Christian denomination or ethnic group was being targeted,' the federal agency said.

    Dotson gave no alternative explanation for the attacks, saying investigators 'are still trying to understand' the motive.

    The region is still recovering from the events surrounding last year's police shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, a St Louis suburb, and a grand jury's subsequent decision not to charge the officer who shot him.

    In related news, a collective wave of disappointment ran through the blacklivesmatter movement, Rev Al & Jessie Jackson upon learning the race of the suspect.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa, stop the clock. This just in - based upon the fact that this man's middle name is Lopez, the Genealogical Studies Department of the New York Times Editorial Staff has just announced their findings that this man is, in fact, a "dark skinned, white hispanic".

    We have not seen this designation used before, but it now reopens the door for the Justice Department to pursue hate crime related charges against the suspect. And a huge sigh of relief is simultaneously breathed across the entire #blacklivesmatter community.

    If you plot out the fires on a map you can see that he was setting them on his way to college, and he has the gentlest gigantism on record
