Lawlor Attack & Fire Victim Fund
I'm Anna with Manuel, & dog is Airborne. So just finished with cops and fire investigators to the hate crime we were just victim to. Fri morning around 8:20am Sleeping... Get awakened to the yelling of A man stating that homeless aren't allowed on his block and we had 15 minutes to move cuz he was coming back with his 40 loaded. Manuel looks to see who is making this ruckus. He doesn't know him. Then this stranger kicks Manuel in the face with his boot and leaves only to return a few minutes later and wet the tent with a flammable liquid and proceeded to ignite the fire. Trapped inside the tent I see the whole side light up with flames right at my feet. While ripping the other side of the tent; so we can escape the flames burn Manuel's face and some of his hair. Manuel makes sure the dog and I are ok and once out of the tent we see the man speeding off in his truck. While neighbors help to put out the fire. They also got pictures of the end of these happening. So fire and cops get there assume we did it to ourselves until I say that the neighbor is witness and has video footage. After talking with the neighbors, they were a little nicer. So this act of hatred towards homeless is actually attempted homelesscide... I mean homicide. It's really straight scary even though it's over just wondering if the truck passing by is this disturbed guy and if he is going to run us over next. As for him, I don't know anger management would help, probably something only God can fix within him. I mean who thinks like this, or acts out like this against a stranger. I mean really, so you dony want bums on your street cuz kids, but yet you want to teach your kids how to kill, or get busted so you can't be there for them. Not try to communicate or ask us to move etc... It's just stupid to me. I know the Lord will handle things appropriately and I know that I am protected by the Lord Jesus Christ, now even more then ever. Very thankful the injuries aren't that bad. The worst part is how much colder it is without a tent and just some burned blankets my pillow, some misc. Stuff. Even the dogs food needs to be replaced. I still don't know if victim witness will assist with anything the cops didn't seem like they would, but regardless they are closed on the weekends, and it will take time and you can't be reimbursed for things when you don't have the means to get them in the first place. Thank you for taking the time to read my lives newest event any thank you for any help.
