Today is National Burrito Day, and just in time to celebrate, last week the Feds caught the alleged firebomber of a Wisconsin pro-life organization’s office because of a burrito. 

No kidding. The offices of Wisconsin Family Action in Madison were attacked last spring following a leaked draft of the Dobbs ruling. After almost a year of detective and forensic work, authorities were able to identify the suspect thanks to DNA obtained from a half-eaten burrito. The 29-year-old was arrested at a Boston airport with a one-way ticket to Guatemala. If convicted, he will serve a 5- to 20-year prison sentence. 

As FBI Counterterrorism Division assistant director Robert Wells said in response, “Violence is never an acceptable way for anyone to express their views or their disagreement.” Even in a broken and divided political climate, the state can fulfill its God-given purpose to punish wickedness and reward good—as long as they are willing to do so, which is too rare today.
