While the investigation is likely ongoing, one has to acknowledge that whoever did this was probably at least sympathetic to the anti-police rhetoric embraced by the Black Lives Matter movement.

Endicott family: ‘Lie with pigs, fry like bacon’ message on home during fire
The owners of a home that caught fire in Endicott Wednesday shared unsettling information with Action News on Thursday.
Multiple crews responded to a house fire at 410 East Main St. around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. Firefighters said the fire destroyed the building’s first floor. New York State Police on Thursday said the fire was being investigated as “suspicious,” but have not called it an arson investigation. A cause has not been identified.
No one was injured in the fire.
The family member, who’s asked to to remain anonymous, said they believe the house was targeted. They say a “Blue Lives Matter” flag waves in front of their house next to an American flag. While the fire was being put out, we’re told one of the family members went around to the back of the house to see the damage. According to that family member, across the back of house on a strip of siding read this message: “Lie with pigs, fry like bacon.”
The strip of siding has been removed from the home, the family says.
New York State Police are handling the investigation. Troopers have yet to confirm those details.
