So I hear on the Chicago news it’s over 30 fires now? What are the LA news media saying about it?
I put it in this forum because I don’t know really where it should go. It’s not a factual question, it’s not mindless and it’s not a debate. Since I wanted info, I figured it’s kind of opinion. Anyway please move it, if another forum is better
Can I add my guess up front? Copy-cat insurance grifters burning the cars / houses / properties that they have over insured and under-purchased?
“Losers call it Domestic Terrorism, Winners call it an Opportunity. They said so at a Seminar I was at last week. Look, just pass that gas can, will ya…? Four dollars a gallon? Why, there outta be a Law…”
Not all copy cats do it for money, but all copy cats do it to get something out of it. Following the money & who has the most to gain from the act are both good predictors, but sometimes the gain isn’t money. There’s revenge (personal, familial, or business), mental illness,
and even the desire for [del]flame[/del] fame. “Are there no Helicopters? Are there no perky-newscaster Live Reports?” If there are, odds are at least one of the “Hee! Hee! Hee! IGotAwayWithIt” specials is fapping like a mofo all over their Hitachi everytime a Special Report breaks into normal TV. Eventually they’ll get caught bragging to somebody (bleach sold seperately) about it. It will come out eventually (not the stains; that TV will Never work the same) & may even be as stupid as some gang trying to act out “The Crow”.
I feel badly for the people who have to live through this, but there’s nothing that I can do.
This situation is seriously messed up. They think they have the right guy now (his van having materials in it matching what was used to start the fires). Dude is setting random cars on fire because he is pissed off about some immigration BS for a relative – oh yeah, that’s gonna help yer case. :rolleyes: Psycho moron!
There have been 59 fires started. We will see if it calms down tonight with this guy in custody. But, of course, there is always the risk of a copycat going for it tonight. Or an accomplice.
