Boat Arsonist Badly Burned

My first thought was he got what he deserved but thatís a very high price to pay.

I think they may have under estimated the combustion rate and of the accelerant, just a little.

They were cleaning the boat. at 1AM. with gasoline and paint thinner. What were they thinking? Everyone knows acetone works better for cleaning.

If he is an arsonist, he`s not the first burned by his own fire. He`ll be lucky, or on another view with those injuries, unlucky to survive the burns and likely infections.

At least five more than the two mentioned in the article. To be fair, Jackson Memorial is known to have the best Trauma Center in South Florida. If he had gone to Mariners Hospital, they would probably have put him on a helicopter and flown him to Jackson Memorial.

Feel sorry for an arsonist? NO WAY IN HELL. AND, let him rot there while his body decays.

I have absolutely NO sympathy for someone that intentionally cause damage to others, breaks the law and has NO compassion for others. Why should we have compassion for this AH.

Perhaps a better option would be to put a bullet between his eyes to be sure he never does this again.

Amen.

Without hands, I am guessing he cannot continue his career as an arsonist. He can get govt sponsored retraining for another profession. Maybe he can get a govt handicap allowance and a preferred parking sticker. Loses his feet, a govt supplied electric wheel chair. He will need that in prison.

No simplicity for criminals that hurt themselves.
Burned criminal was either passed out - most likely - or screaming. Probably in his lungs, too. Saw lot of burns from napalm. Quickly takes the fingers and ears. Almost always in the lungs. In my day most died with 40%. Pain must be intense.

Likely these three were less fortunate before this all began and for whatever reason, were doing a "job" for the owner.

Owner could yet be the winner, while these guys pay; big time.
Not justifying anything; just saying that's what it looks like to me.

3rd degree burns are not as painful as you would expect because the nerves are also destroyed.

Fire caused by friction! Insurance policy rubbing against the mortgage.
