  1. If the cats died in the fire, why are they not also levying Animal Abuse charges against this woman?

  2. Arson is a violent crime. So many intended and unintended consequences. What is wrong with people who think they are more important than others? How would you fix that? Can't be done. Incarcerate forever and ever.
