Australian Fires


As many of you have heard by now, the Australian fires that started a few days ago is still raging on. Nearly 200 were killed (and that number is expected to rise), about 500 people injured and nearly 1,000 homes destroyed. The Australian government are keen on prosecuting whoever started the fires with either manslaughter or murder charges. Some are even calling it mass murder. I just hope everyone and particularly my friends and family keep safe in Victoria.

Update February 13, 2009
A suspect was arrested and charged with arson causing death Friday February 13. Interestingly, he was also charged with possessing child pornography. Wonder if there's a direct correlation between sex offenders and arsonists.
