We all love those who protect and serve for our country. They defend us with honor and pride. We appreciate the U.S. military‘s work to the fullest. However, not everyone feels this positive about the military. 

Tnuza J. Hassan would happen to be one of those people who doesn’t feel the same as others. After reading stories of attacks on “Muslim landher homeland in which she was born and grew up in, she wanted revenge for U.S. military operations around the globe. At St. Kate Campus, agoCampus security cameras showed a woman entering the campus, before the fire broke out, carrying a plastic bag. Police later found the same plastic bag with a box of matches thrown away in a bucket. Books, toilet paper, and sanitary napkins were among the objects set on fire. The fire in St. Mary’s was extinguished by a sprinkler system. 

Tnuza was arrested Wednesday, January 17, in St. Paul, Minnesota and was charged with felony first-degree arson. She then stated that “She wanted the school to burn to the ground and that her intent was to hurt people. She set eight fires in trash cans around the campus. Luckily, the eight fires did a minimal amount of damage. One of the fires that was started by Tzuna was in a daycare center building with thirty-three kids and eight adults. No deaths or injuries were reported due to this situation. Similar attacks happened on “Muslim land” and no one cared if Muslims were hurt. She told police and fire investigators, “You guys are lucky that I don’t know how to build a bomb because I would have done that.” She attempted to get revenge and failed. Tzuna’s bail was set at $100,000.
