Default Arson

This has been an ongoing problem now for over 18 months. Should it have been stamped out by now or do we have to accept it as part of life in the 21st century? Personally I think it should be made a policing priority.

Default Re: Arson

I had an incident a few weeks ago where 2 kids (possibly 11 or 12 yrs old) tried to set my door on fire using newspaper and nylon rope. Thankfully the paper must have been a bit damp and fire went out before it caught. Took police 3 hours to come out and then they weren't particularly interested, even though I had the whole incident on CCTV.

Local PCSO arranged for arson reduction team to come out and fit a bag on letterbox and extra smoke alarm by door.

We were lucky this was just a prank but the consequences could have been huge.

No other area seems to have this problem. Same bunch of people, perhaps?

A quick google search for "Car Arson" shows this isn't just a local problem.
