    Please do not send this arsonist to jail.
    Tax payers are out $2mil for the original cost of the equipment. Now the taxpayer is going to cough up another $2mil to replace the equipment. Plus the cost of the fire and police depts to control the blaze and ensure the public safety. Then the taxpayer is going to have to pay not only for the prosecution but probably the defense (court appointed) as well…..This arsonist is costing the taxpayer probably $5-6 mil before the costs incarceration for 20 years.
    Save the taxpayer some money. Just turn him over to us and we’ll extract due restitution.
