came home today and the news was on tv, with a segment on all the fires we (south-eash queensland) are getting at the moment due to this idiotic weather, and apparently some kids are lighting the fires up in bundaberg i think it was. considering pretty much every firefighter in the area has been fighting fires that have been threatening property and everything for several days now across the south-east region, and most of them are bloody tired, i dunno how or why people would go around lighting more fires. apparently they (firefighters) had got the bundaberg blaze all under control and had firebreaks set up and these kids went around and lit it up on the other side of the break. wtf? thats just blatant criminal activity, not just kids lighting fires cos they are ignorant (these kids were serial arsonists. im not sure on their ages, but apparently its life imprisonment for setting fires that damage property and 5 years for general fire lighting or something along those lines. im sure the kids would be too young to be thrown away (unfortunately) but dad said once they start working, they should have their pay severley docked to pay back all the damage they caused.
i just find this whole thing absolutely disgusting and thought i'd share my thoughts and open things up for yours
