A young activist for Black Lives Matter activist, Arturo Gonzalez, says on a Facebook livestream that a professional group of arsonists was hired to burn down Chase Bank and Union Bank in downtown on the 30th of May in La Mesa, CA. Presumably, the same group also burned down the Randall Lamb building which is right next to the banks. These were three of the most important commercial buildings in La Mesa and the Randall Lamb building was considered a historic landmark. This video was made by Gonzalez on August 1, 2020.
This statement confirms what I already thinking from the viewing video of the bank burnings. The banks were engulfed in fire in minutes and were destroyed completely in a very short time. So, I assumed it was a professional job. To see the banks burning, click here. If this kid knows what happened, many people in the local Black Lives Matter movement must also have information about the arson attack and who was involved.
On the day the banks were burned, May 30, the regular, non-professional “protesters” vandalized much of downtown and ransacked many businesses in the area.
