That makes it a crime and not an accident. I see jail time in her future and many lawsuits.

With conditions in the forests as they are, any number of sources of ignition could have have "accidentally" touched off such a blaze. But why is it that this kind of willful act of radical behavior is less and less surprising anymore? The media hypes up the extreme fire risk and some nut case takes it as an invitation to make it into a personal crusade of destruction.
Whatever happen to basic, simple values? Why does every issue we here about these days involve either some radical agenda or a deranged mental condition (or both)?

On the other hand... all he has to do is say no and she goes to jail whether or not her story is true. At least unless they examine the guy's computer and find the letter or something like that.
What chaps my hide is that we get banned from public lands and their own ******* people set the damn thing. Bans wouldn't have made a difference on this fire.
