Young Woman Set On Fire in Louisiana Park by KKK

Sharmeka Moffitt, 20, was burned over 50 percent of her body Sunday night in Civitan Park in Winnsboro, Louisiana, allegedly by members of the KKK.

The South appears to be on the rise again.  Didn’t some of you think the Ku Klux Klan had decided to call it quits?  Well nothing could be further from the truth.  It appears that Hate never sleeps, nor dies.

Sharmeka Moffitt, 20, was in Civitan Park in Winnsboro, Louisiana, when three men approached her in white hoodies and doused her with a flammable liquid then set her on fire, according to CBS.  They also took some creamy like substance and wrote “KKK” on her vehicle.

Moffitt suffered third degree burns on more than half of her body Sunday night when she was attacked. Civitan Park does not have video surveillance, so the leads on the crime are slim.  At the time of the report, no one has been caught and/or arrested for the vicious crime.

Franklin Sheriff Kevin Cobb said:

“This is a horrific event that will not be taken lightly.  Winnsboro Police, Franklin Parish Sheriff, Louisiana State Police, The state fire Marshall’s office and the FBI are investigating.”

This is the type of crime that the South is quite familiar with and this area especially.  According to the local NAACP branch President, Otis Chisley, the president of the local branch of the NAACP, Moffitt’s family is “distraught”, but they are awaiting more facts before drawing any conclusion. Chisley was quoted saying

“everyone wants to move with caution.”

He also said, “racism and KKK activity remain a fact of life in the state.”

  1. Lord if this is true, please Lord get those people. Father you sit high and look low You see’s all, fight her battle in Jesus Name Amen.

  2. Hmmmmm Seems this was not the KKK after all. She made up the story to make it look like it was racist. Does that make it reverse racism?

  3. first i dont support most of the views by the kkk. some are publically backing barack obama for example.(this i am also)but i am not a kkk supporter…but just the sound of a crime as this being claimed by a known hate group..just sounds a bit fishy,i mean it could be,but it seems like the real culprets are trying to put attention on to somebody else possibly..wild goose chase kinda..i dont know..i do know that there is alot of activity by the black community to always portray themselves as victims…even though most all crimes commited have a higher percentage of blacks commiting them than all other groups.any time a black is a victim of a crime by a white for is a hate crime..but everyday a white person is killed by a black person..and nothing is made of it..nothing at its ok for blacks to hate others and kill them for reasons of hate,to say terrible things to whites ..its ok..but let it be the other way arround..whew!!
