Australia's Worst-Ever Wildfires Kill 130, Whole Towns Declared Crime Scenes As Arson Suspected, PM Calls It "Mass Murder" - CBS News

I just read this, but it appears that over 400 fires that contributed to this deadly wildfire were deliberately set according to Australian officials. Death toll runs from 68 to 130 I believe. The arsonist or arsonists are facing a lot of shit if they're caught.

It's better than they deserve but the responsible parties should be put away for life for this. Not as punishment but to keep the rest of us safe.

That's generally how they start every year. In fact, I can't remember the last time the news didn't mention it possibly being the work of arsonists.

What on earth happened to common sense :rolleyes: Like Tas said, anyone responsible for stuff like this ought to be locked away for life.

Execution tends to be a deterrent. It isn't any harder than letting them have one or two appeals and then putting a bullet in the side of their heads. That kind of process is cheaper than waiting twenty years, giving them a ridiculous number of appeals, and then slowly killing them in the nicest, fuzzy way possible. Oh yeah, and some imam over there is encouraging arson, too.

Religious figures advocating violence. Nothing new there.

Agreed, seeing as how it is the most common thing people have fights & wars about.

Judging by how those sort tend to work, I wouldn't be surprised if it was an act of terrorism, and even less surprised if more fires sprung up.

People always have and always will fight over what they believe. It's no different than Republicans and Democrats at each others' throats in Congress, except in that case it's about politics, and it doesn't involve killing each other.

Ofcourse they will, but it is a different way of fighting, don't you agree ?
