Police Are Investigating Two Cross-burnings Outside Texas Church

Police are looking into cross-burnings at an African-American and Hispanic church in in El Paso, Texas. First, someone lit a two-foot tall cross in front of Smyrna Seventh Day Adventist Church in east El Paso on Saturday night. Then Monday night, someone did it again. “I know of no reason why anyone would do this. We’re trying to stay positive,” said the church’s pastor, Allen Brewer. “I understand there’s a lot going on in the country these days,” he said, referencing last month’s church massacre in Charleston, South Carolina. “I don’t know why anyone would do this.”
