JuggleGeek: Assuming they have the right guy, I hope he's never free again.But it does make me nervous that they don't seem to have any actual evidence. I think they should have watched him a bit longer and made sure they had a good solid case.Other than "He looks like the type and he started some fires before", they don't seem to have much of a case. Presumably they had a warrant, but doesn't that warrant require some evidence? And when they broke into his house, what did they find as evidence? Someone above said "fire starting equipment". Does that mean he owned a cigarette lighter? A box of matches? Did he have a gas can sitting next to his lawn mower? Was his BBQ grill hooked up to a propane tank? There are a lot of us who "have fire starting equipment", but I'm not sure that's convincing evidence that we are arsonists.I find it easy to believe that he's the right guy, and if he is, I don't want him walking free. But he may well go free because they seemed to have jumped the gun on the "break into his house and then arrest him" stuff.

mcnguyen: Article fails to mention what actual evidence they have on the guy. It says they followed him for 2 days, the raided his house. What did they find?
Phil Moskowitz: How many sex fires has he started?
o'really: Mimic_Octopus: ftfa: They didn't see him start any fires by Wednesday, when they raided his home.So, uhhh, how the fark did they have cause to raid hios home then ?>They searched the arsonist database and matched him with surveillance camera pictures. All the fires were within a few blocks of his trailer home.Found fire starting equip in his house.
