A BLM activist and alleged arsonist charged for reckless burning in the second degree had reported a fire set in Washington and then filmed his subsequent arrest.

Jeffrey Acord, 36 of Pallyup, called 911 Wednesday evening to report a fire in the median of Highway 167 near Tacoma, Washington. After dialing dispatch services, Acord then livestreamed the incident to his Facebook page, providing constant narration.
According to Q13 Fox, Washington State Patrol Trooper Ryan Burke reported that a man was caught setting a fire in the brush. State patrol also sourced a woman who cited a man walking on the highway in Sumner holding a lighter.

When an officer questioned Acord's presence, the suspect claimed that he was recovering his $1,000 recording equipment, because the camera case allegedly flew out of his backpack while biking the previous day to his girlfriend's place in Bellevue.

"I've been out here all day searching for my camera," Acord told police, also noting the loss of his camera bag on the freeway in a prior Facebook post. "I'm trying to cover the area thoroughly."
Acord was then arrested for implicating himself at the scene of the fire.

"There's nothing you can connect to me to this at all," Acord stated before the video cut out. "I was literally calling this in."

The fire was contained to the interstate and extinguished by the local fire department. Puyallup Police were forced to close the northbound ramp.

Acord was detained with bail set at $1,000 and then transferred from the Pallyup City Jail to the Pierce County Jail where he was booked under a separate burglary charge.
Reckless burning in the second degree is a gross misdemeanor punishable by up to 364 days in jail.
The Post Millennial researched Acord's history of anti-police protesting and encounters with law enforcement. In June, Acord led a Black Lives Matter march in Seattle. Previously in 2014, Acord was caught with a cache of weapons and arrested during the Ferguson Decision Protest. Officers found the man carrying a 7-inch knife in his backpack, a box of ammunition, an assault rifle, a shotgun, and a box full of illegal fireworks in his car, according to a KOMO news report. When officers contacted Acord, he admitted to carrying a loaded gun without a permit. His bail was set for $10,000. The following charges were levelled against him.
Acord attempted to justify the 2014 case as "a misunderstanding" to arresting officers in Wednesday's camera footage.

"I was crucified," Acord said to police.
Sources told Protester Privilege that Acord is now a suspect in two other local fires. As of Thursday morning, the Sumner Grade Fire in Sumner, that destroyed four homes, and Bonney Lake has burned more than 800 acres.

The unprecedented fires raging in Washington State have become a seasonal norm but some suspect arson because of the locations of the smaller fires in suburban neighborhoods and in proximity to interstate highways. Residents of Bonney Lake told Kiro 7 news that they found broken glass with newspaper in the brush. Residents of Buckley Washington have reported similar claims in neighborhood social media groups.
In response to the allegations of arson, Washington State Representative Jim Walsh released a statement: “I am getting a lot of reports from residents of Washington State that the current wave of wild fires in Washington and Oregon may be caused or at least made worse by politically motivated arsonists. How could their motives be political? To set fire to blame them on climate change? ... we have pretty good evidence that several of the major fires burning recently in Washington were human made but not arson. However, a larger number of the fires burning in Oregon seem to have suspicious origins and a growing number of people in Washington are reporting suspicious behavior on the part of strangers and visitors which raises concerns.”
Walsh continued: “Right now our focus is on containing and fighting the fires and keeping people safe as it should be. There will be time later to investigate the origins of the various fires.”

The situation is being made worse by conditions in the area. According to one firefighter, “[W]e have these fires EVERY year about this time. What we don’t have are these weather conditions! It has dried out the 'ground fuels' and made a us into a tinderbox.”

The Oregonian reported that a group of wildfires in Lincoln County, destroying more than 2,400 acres, may have been caused by human activity opposed to lightning or other natural ignition sources.

Even with allegations swirling, residents' reports of people throwing flaming items from their cars and other suspicious activity all while arrests are being made for in Spokane, Puyallup and elsewhere including the nearby state of Oregon for arson in connection with the wildfires, Washington State Governor Jay Inslee continued to blame the fires on climate change.

A man arrested during Monday night’s Ferguson-related protest in Seattle faces several charges after police say they uncovered a cache of weapons, ammunition and explosives in his backpack and car.

Jeffrey Alan Acord, 31, was charged Wednesday with possession of a concealed weapon without a permit, carrying a dangerous knife and illegal possession of fireworks, reported NBC affiliate KING5. According to police, a witness saw Acord reach under a vehicle while holding a road flare, and when they searched him, they found a loaded 9 mm handgun without a permit and a 7-inch knife. More weapons, including an assault rifle and a shotgun, as well as a box of fireworks, were found in his car after police secured a search warrant, The Seattle Times reported.

“I don’t know what his plans were, but it’s obviously of great concern that someone would come to an event in Seattle with those weapons readily available,” Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole said Wednesday, according to the newspaper.

Four others were arrested in the city on Monday, as demonstrations erupted across the country following a grand jury’s decision not to indict a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer in the fatal shooting of teenager Michael Brown. Seattle police said they are still searching for another suspect who threw fireworks off a freeway overpass during the protests. No one was hurt.

Long promoting the use of arson — both of occupied structures and of tinder-dry wildlands — as a cheap terror tactic that requires little skill but can inflict immense fear and harm, ISIS claims the terror group is behind a series of wildfires in Iraq and Syria.

In the group’s official weekly newsletter, al-Naba, ISIS said the targets were “apostates” whose “hearts have long been burned” and vowed the blazes are “just the beginning.”

ISIS also emphasized the economic impact of the fires, noting “many agricultural lands have been destroyed” and “tons of crops,” including wheat and barley, went up in flames in the jihadists’ “harvest of another kind.”

ISIS noted at the beginning of the al-Naba article that it’s summer; terror groups, in encouraging the use of wildfire arson in the past, have stressed that picking dry, hot, windy weather will intensify their efforts.

Iraq’s Civil Defense Directorate said Monday 6,103 acres of farmland had burned in 136 separate fires over the past 18 days, spanning 11 provinces. The statement did not confirm nor deny ISIS’ claim of responsibility, but the provinces most harmed — Salahuddin, Nineveh, Kirkuk, Diyala — correspond with areas already suffering under ISIS’ escalating guerrilla campaign that has included kidnappings and murders.

“ISIS entered the village of Palani, where parts of my family belong, threatened farmers that they would need to pay taxes to prevent their grain fields from being set on fire,” tweeted Kamaran Palani, a research fellow at the Middle East Research Institute, on May 21. “The men don’t sleep at night defending the village & the women come back to the village during the day.”

In Syria, farmers in Deir ez-Zour blame ISIS for setting wildfires and have been calling for more protection for their lands; ISIS claimed blazes in Al-Hasakah province, also along the Iraqi border. Syria Civil Defence, or the White Helmets, says the regime shelling of Khan Sheikhoun has sparked wildfires, while Assadists on social media have been accusing the U.S.-allied Syrian Democratic Forces of torching agricultural land.

In the al-Naba article, “Roll Up Your Sleeves and Begin the Harvest — May Allah Bless What You Reap,” ISIS reminded “soldiers of the caliphate” that they “have before you millions of acres… their plantations, fields and homes, as well as their economic foundation” to burn.

In threats directed at the West, ISIS and al-Qaeda have linked their calls for wildland arson to devastating fires occurring at that time, stressing to supporters that they can wreak similar havoc by intentionally sparking blazes as their method of jihad.

“O america, This is the punishment of bombing Muslims in Syria,” stated a November threat from ISIS supporters that circulated online with an image of the California wildfires. “This is Allah’s punishment for you. And in shaa Allah, you will see more fires.

At the time, official ISIS media also highlighted the damage and death toll of the wildfires in multiple issues of al-Naba.

In January 2017, ISIS’ now-defunct Rumiyah magazine told would-be jihadists that “incendiary attacks have played a significant role in modern and guerrilla warfare, as well as in ‘lone wolf’ terrorism,” and said wildfires around Israel that month “demonstrated the lethality of such an effortless operation.”

The magazine suggested targets for arson jihad to “include houses and apartment buildings, forest areas adjacent to residential areas, factories that produce cars, furniture, clothing, flammable substances, etc., gas stations, hospitals, bars, dance clubs, night clubs, banks, car showrooms, schools, universities, as well as churches, Rafidi [Shiite] temples, and so forth. The options are vast, leaving no excuse for delay.”

Jihadists were advised to time arson attacks “preferably in the later part of night to the early hours of morning when people are generally asleep,” and were instructed how to block off exits in an effort to increase casualties. ISIS also specifically addressed wildfires, telling operatives to look for dry brush “as fire cannot endure in damp or wet environments.”

Also during last year’s California wildfires, supporters of al-Qaeda — which has a lengthy history of promoting wildfire arson — circulated news photos from the blazes with the Quran verse, “They will question you about the mountains. Say: ‘My Lord will scatter them as ashes.'”

A tutorial in a 2012 issue of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula’s Inspire magazine highlighted the damage caused by various wildfires and instructed jihadists on picking optimum weather conditions for arson and where to set a blaze to inflict maximum devastation.

“In America, there are more houses built in the country sides than in the cities. It is difficult to choose a better place other than in the valleys of Montana where the population increases rapidly. In the year 2000, a fire that is considered to be the biggest in the American history flared up in one of those valleys. It spread in a space equal to that of London. The fire burnt down 70 houses as well as a hundred car. On July of the same year and in the same place, a thunderstorm lighted 78 massive blazes in just one day, most of them were deadly firestorms,” the “Open Source Jihad” article said.

“We mention such examples only to show the magnitude of the destructive impact that fires or firebombs make, to then ask the question: Is it possible for us to cause a similar destructive impact using a similar weapon? The answer is: Yes, it is possible. Even in a shorter time and with much bigger destructive impact,” the Inspire tutorial continued, offering a step-by-step guide on building an “ember bomb” with a timer to spark a conflagration.

“The most important damaging result… is the spreading of terror among the targeted community,” al-Qaeda said.

The National Interagency Fire Center said in its May outlook that, at the peak of the U.S. fire season expected this upcomin August, major influencers will be a “heavy crop of grasses and fine fuels” across California along with moderate drought in the Pacific Northwest.
