May 30, 2005: Racist Arson
Five members of a racist gang known as 2-1 FATAL, which had ties with the Aryan Brotherhood, set an Indianapolis home ablaze after hearing rumors that a black family was moving into the home. The fire spread to adjacent homes in the mix-raced neighborhood, destroying two and damaging three others. According to officials, the house in question was owned by a bank and no tenants were scheduled to move into the home.
