Feds arrest man in firebombing of an anti-abortion group using DNA from a partly eaten burrito

Source: NBC News

WASHINGTON — Federal authorities Tuesday arrested a man they say firebombed an anti-abortion group after the FBI used DNA it pulled from a partly eaten burrito to connect him to the Mason jar used in the attack.

Hridindu Sankar Roychowdhury was arrested Tuesday in Boston and charged in connection with the firebombing of the office of Wisconsin Family Action in Madison on May 8.

“If abortions aren’t safe then you aren’t either," someone had written on the wall of the building in graffiti during the attack, which took place just days after Politico broke the news that the Supreme Court had the votes to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Authorities were able to pull DNA off of a Mason jar they found inside, as well as from the window glass and on a lighter found at the scene, a Dane County deputy who serves on a FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force wrote in an affidavit.

The prosecutors on the trump rape case can’t get a break like this. Trump never leaves anything uneaten. Not even a partial condiment package. It all gets sucked into that perfectly round vacuum hole in his face.

I was speaking generically (and ironically) of someone who turns to violence to solve his problems.

Those "pro-life" assholes that destroy planned parenthood and clinics should be in jail for decades also.

It's one thing to disagree on abortion.

It's simply WRONG to commit violence either on one side or another.

Or condone it.

Probably should find out when the event occurred..

Was it in the past week or so? Then wouldn't it be much too soon for enough evidence to warrant an arrest and be charged?

with a unfinished pizza slice, if it's collected on public property no warrant needed.
