    Another lunatic on the loose. Hopefully this idiot will be caught soon and be given appropriate punishment. My solution would revolve around a baseball bat or a good knee-capping so that he wouldn’t be able to walk down the street to set another fire for a very long time.

    If I was stuck in Allston I would start burning things too.
