    Well this week we've had 2 court related buildings set on fire. First a historic courthouse that was built in 1828, then a solicitor's office, and 4 lawyers offices. Its so stupid how people think this will get people out of court. They just held the hearings across the street from the courthouse in the administrative building.

    What jackasses. Honestly what would make you want to burn down a historical building, and a courthouse too? :dunno:

    You think thats bad, i onced owned an 87 all motor rx7. I invested 10,000.00 in work. Ran 10's on the track all day. A few times people tried to steal it. One day coming home from a weekend getaway, i pull up to find the fire dept put out a fire in my car. I thought i screwed up something that set the car on fire, thats when the fire marshall tells me "they left you a note", they who? I said. He tells me read the note. So i did, it read "if i can't have it, you can't have it either". Ain't that a bitch.

    yeah sorry.... but, lighting a historic building on fire and 5 other offices is a little bit worse than lighting an 87 RX7 on fire

    Still haven't caught the arsonist. The city had the national guard patrolling all of main street last night. If they don't catch him soon another building will be burnt down.

    We have a major murder trial coming up next week. I have a feeling the trial and burnings are related.

    My buddy told me today when we were on the way to pick up books for college that the city was trying to get money from the state for a new courthouse. My friend thinks the city did it.
    Lol.

    Ya people are jerks, what makes you feel the need to do those things? Half the time its just stupid kids with nothing else to do. Just last week someone broke into 2 cars, only some cash was stolen, left the ipod/cell phone, cds, just dumbass kids. Ripped the mirror off one. This was all in the Wal-Mart parking lot overnight (where and when i work). A few times i have seen people peering into my car, most are just curious or interested but some have other things in mind.

    Two weeks ago i was out collecting carts (3:45 am or so) on a tuesday night, some kids came to the parking lot on foot. I watched them look around for about 10 mins just looking around. Then they stopped at my car, looking in (i keep my cooler in there). I saw one going for the door, so as i watched i clicked my alarm to off, so it beeped twice, they freaked and jumped away, looking around for someone who would be coming. They started to walk into the store so i went in after them. I said "Dont touch my god damn car again or ill break your fingers off." Ofcourse he responded like a punk 17 your old and said "i didnt touch shit!" The cops came a few mins later asking around for suspicious people around, saying someone tried to break into the near by Canadian Tire (yes its a real store lol). From now on my alarm stays on and glove box locked, i get to go outside alot at night since im maintenance so i keep an eye out. There are alot of weird people who come out a night. This one women comes in every once in a while, at 10:30pm, grapped one of the motorized cart things and just sits around all night, literally. We asked her what she was doing and she said she was waiting for the bus. The bus? The bus doesnt come til 7:15am! She stayed for 8 hours....... like WTF.


    Good luck with the arsonist.

    They found the guy who burnt down the buildings, he also kidnapped a 70 year old woman and locked her in a trunk. Come to find out I had a class with him in high school. He is 17 years old.

    Some people are just fucking douche bags. Habitual thieves deserve harsher sentencing.

    1 year jail time. Absolute tops. I don't care if the sentence him to 25 years, he'll only do a year.

    Then they'll keep him on probation/parole forever, paying into the system, month after month, for years on end.

    Update this post one year from his sentance and let me know how it went.

    I wouldn't doubt that. He has already been in jail once, and they let him go. The same thing will happen again.
