I have to wonder if the sentence would have been so light had it been a home for orphans or elderly people. I think this judge is sending the wrong message and should have nailed these two terrorists to a cross. The judge should have just come out and said “vigilantism is OK; just don’t get caught, because I’ll have to do something, but don’t worry, I’ll go easy on you.” I find it unfathomable that anyone would wan’t a couple of arsonists anywhere near them. This judge is an insult to justice, as well as the robes this judge… Read more »

They ought to put offenders like this on the registry – that would be poetic justice.

If memory serves me, California has a registry for arsonist, but it is not available to the public.

What the punishment if he DIDN”T register for arsonist?

Probably not much, not in proportion to the risk. An arsonist can kill several people and cause millions of dollars in damage just by setting one brush fire. Risk assessment? What a bunch of BS. How ’bout the risk your child’d be killed by a drunk driver? Give me that info oh wise politician advocating for the child. Put said drunk on the Internet. Put said arsonist on the Internet. Put the executive who thinks it’s OK to poison the drinking water of children, causing them horrible pain and cancerous death. Fair is fair.

And why in heavens isn’t there one for murderers, carjackers, kidnappers et al?

It would have been nice to see the person who burned down my home a few years back, go to prison. All he got was a misdemeanor and informal probation.. just keep the courts informed of his address for 1 year. Oh, and he had to pay me $200.

All my things, my home, were destroyed, causing me a hellstorm of issues because i became homeless, living out of my car, while on parole wearing an ankle monitor that kept failing.

Nothing like kicking a man when he’s down. Sorry to hear of your unfortunate occurrence.
Did the red cross help you out?

They couldn’t help me while i was on parole and on the registry.

Ironic, since a few years before that i was a Red Cross volunteer.

I didn’t realize this humanitarian organization doesn’t consider certain individuals worthy of human assistance but little surprises me with regard to the Red Cross.
Personally, I only donate to the Salvation Army.

Have you considered filing a civil suit against the arsonist?

The man should file a civil suit against the 2. He should also file a suit demanding to know all their future addresses.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
