It’s still worth posting tonight how impressive it was that the Fox News Network raised if not an exact replica of the original fifty foot artificial tree put up this Christmas season, a second one within around 24 hours. In the wake of some person with a criminal history, an arrest was made soon after the crime on seven counts including arson and criminal mischief. The man said in his own words he’d thought all day about burning down the tree, but because it’s New York City that has liberal criminal law, his offense was reduced to three counts.
Fox News Media said in a statement, “We will not let this deliberate and brazen act of cowardice deter us. We are in the process of rebuilding and reinstalling a new tree as a message there can be peace, light and joy even during a moment like this.” Thanks were also given to the NYFD and NYPD for their prompt response and resourcefulness.
