A man in Missouri was recently sentenced to sixty-three months in prison for setting fire to a mosque. Authorities say he was also charged for attempting to do the same to a Planned Parenthood facility.
32-year-old Jedediah Stout admitted to burning down the Islamic Society of Joplin mosque back in August of 2012. He said that he used a backpack filled with a bottle containing a flammable liquid. He admitted that he had failed to burn down that building once before. He also confessed to two unsuccessful attempts at burning down the Planned Parenthood building. In the first one, he used gasoline siphoned from his lawnmower. The second, lamp oil.
Stout was arrested after walking on some railroad tracks and acting suspiciously. The arresting officer noticed that the man’s hands smelled like some kind of fuel. Authorities eventually linked Stout to incidents at the Planned Parenthood, because of items purchased from Wal-Mart. Not from cell phone tracking software as some had first thought.
Police learned that Stout bought the backpack, as well as three camo-colored dog rope toys at the store and used them in the arson. He had also purchased a bottle of alcohol. Investigators used a receipt of the purchases—which bore Stout’s birthdate—as well as store security camera footage to link him to the crimes. They eventually found and confirmed his fingerprints on the plastic bottle that contained the accelerant.
Why did he do it?
Stout said the reason for his attack on the mosque was simply that he hated Islam. His disapproval of abortion and the people who perform them were the reasons he targeted the Planned Parenthood facility.
