Florida Wildfires: Suspected Arsonist Arrested


www.huffingtonpost.com

PALM BAY, Fla. — Authorities along Florida's Atlantic coast, where wildfires have gutted dozens of homes and scorched thousands of acres, arrested a man Wednesday who they said threw a glass bottle containing an accelerant into the woods.

Officials were waiting to question Brian Crowder, 31, about the wildfires that have found ample fuel in developments in the region, where the state has not held controlled burns to cut back vegetation.

A resident alerted police after seeing Crowder throw an object from his car that sparked a small fire in the woods, Palm Bay Detective Ernie Diebel said. The object was a bottle containing a flammable liquid, Palm Bay Police Chief Bill Berger said.

The resident described a dark car, and officers stopped Crowder's vehicle shortly afterward. Crowder got out of his car and fled, Diebel said.

In medieval Japan the penalty for arson was death.

While I am not an advocate for the death penalty... if it is proven that he started these fires they should lock him up and throw away the key.
