Someone who has been fired from said ambulance company?

Someone who lost a loved one when said ambulance company failed in some way?

Siren keeps going off at 1 am waking a sleeping baby?

This guy was wearing a Hunter's uniform in one of the pics I saw last night, so I'm gonna go with "disgruntled former employee."

Richard White, alleged burglar firebug, disgruntled and bored with knitting, from Torrington, CT, that's who!

That is a very happy arsonist.  He must really enjoy his work.

Everyone knows that ambulances amplify the 5G signals that are helping to spread the new strains of Covid.

Yeah, they were able to ID and hunt him down pretty quickly.  This story is missing a lot of details.

But it sounds exactly like you mentioned.

Ambulances and fire engines regularly come under attack in the UK. It invariably happens in deprived areas and is the most powerful argument I know against socialism - and I write that as a socialist.

He walked into one of the Hunter's locations and threw a Molotov cocktail on the floor. There was probably somebody onsite, or at least he got caught on camera. He worked for them at some point, so it shouldn't have been hard to ID him.

A black guy got bail?

He is expected to be extradited and has a court set bond of $150,000 charging him with third-degree arson and third-degree burglary.

Granted, I guess he still needs $15000.

Progress?

Did he at least yell 'BORTLES!' when he threw it?

It's equally common in suburbia and has sweet FA to do with socialism or are you suggesting that bored kids are using it as a metaphor for the underlying class hatred in the two party system leading to the degradation of their living standards and highlighted by the shiny new fire engines employed by the state.

Man, how light weight is that breakaway prop glass?  Doesn't even make his hand budge when it hits it.

Just like when tv/movies sometimes forego the standard punch sound effects, enjoy the occasional one that doesn't have glass that just vaporizes causing no damage.

Clerical error.  Jacket read: "White, Richard (Dick)" and they just assumed it was some Caucasian a55hole.  They will correct it in person.

I went to a communist party. After two Molotov cocktails and an Opiate of the People, I got into a class struggle and woke up in the morning with the trotskys.

The very people whom socialism should help most - the poor - regularly show violent antipathy to services provided to help them. Just as in the US, allowing poor people to die for lack of medical cover is a huge vote winner amongst the poor.

Attacks by onlookers are almost unknown outside deprived areas in the UK. Drunks regularly attack ambulance staff anywhere, but that's a different matter.
