Florida man attempts to burn down home of lesbian couple with kids

gaywrites:

Traumatic stuff ahead. Proceed carefully. 

Police have arrested a man in Miami for setting fire to the home of a lesbian couple and their eight children.

The suspect, 73-year-old Braulio Valenzuela-Villanueva (who is also a registered sex offender), is seen on a surveillance camera setting fire to a mattress leaning against the family’s trailer home. He fled back to his own home, but later returned to "casually observe" the fire.

The family didn’t have smoke detectors, but they escaped safely upon hearing neighbors shouting about the fire. No injuries were reported. 

During police questioning, Valenzuela-Villanueva said he didn’t start the fire, but stated that he “despised the two adult victims for the simple fact that they were lesbians,” the police report notes. The arrest affidavit also says that “every time he saw them kissing he felt a deep repugnance and in his opinion, they did not deserve children.” …

Several sex offenders were removed from the River Park Trailer Court last year, because they had been allegedly living there illegally, according to the Herald.The offenders where taken to live in a warehouse district, because county law prohibits those on probation from living within 2,500 feet of a park, school, day care center, playground, or anywhere else children regularly gather. Valenzuela-Villanueva was not on probation.

I feel sick. This is sick.
