    They should go over this with all the internees in Government Indoctrination Camp (public school) so that the little pricks will actually learn something on a given day.

    A kid setting fires to homes, whether occupied or not, is a seriously disturbed kid. Glad he got stopped without being killed, but I really wonder if he's salvageable.

    I agree, a few years and a couple hundred thousand tax payer dollars and he'll be free to try and kill again.

    From the article.
    "At 8 Mountview Drive, a black sport utility vehicle with a National Rifle Association sticker was parked in the driveway. A basketball hoop was set up, and the homeowners displayed an American flag."
    The home owner sounds like one of them right wing wackos. This information is all the proof we need that the home owner was out looking for some young kid to kill.
    Oh the outrage.

    Wait until the paper gets sued for releasing so much 'unnecessary' personal information on the home owners. It's happened here, and they also won the lawsuit.

    I'll bet this kids parents are "really proud" of their son now. Put their name in the paper and his address, not the homeowner's ... who's house he tried to burn down.
