For four days, a prolific car arsonist had Los Angeles car-owners posting up all night like nervous cowboys guarding their cattle from wolves. A suspect was arrested today; he might be mad at America for deporting his mom.
24-year-old Harry Burkhart was arrested during a traffic stop, bringing an apparent end to an arson spree that included at least 55 fires and caused $3 million in damage. (But, thankfully, no serious injuries.) According to some reports, Burkhart, a German national, might have been angry that his mom was in the process of being deported. He told police "I hate America," when he was arrested, according to ABC News.
