Bet You Didn’t Hear About THIS! PRO-LIFE Catholic School Bus Firebombed. TOTAL MEDIA BLACKOUT!!!

Posted on June 19, 2012


Illinois (Billy Hallowell-The Blaze) – The local media in Rockford, Illinois, have been virtually silent about a firebomb attack on a Catholic school bus belonging to Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Academy. While the details and fuzzy, here’s what we know: There’s extensive damage to a pro-life bus — a vehicle that is widely-known in the community for showcasing messages on its exterior that defend unborn babies and stand in opposition to abortion.

A blog called Pro-life Corner claims that the bus was firebombed on Friday evening (an employee at the Rockford Fire Department confirmed that authorities arrived at the scene around 3 a.m.). In a description of the damage, the blog reports that the attack’s impact was substantial, leaving broken windows, burned and charred seats and a plethora of other major blemishes.

“It has been speculated that this bombing of a pro-life Christian school bus is in retaliation for the closing of the Rockford abortion mill that is located not far from where the school bus was attacked,” the outlet writes.

This, of course, is not confirmed. The Blaze has reached out to Mike Rotolo, the investigator handling the case for the Rockford Fire Department, and is awaiting comment regarding the suspected motivation for the attack.
