IS 50K Incentive Enough?

A few years back, my area of the country caught fire, and it was determined that a careless resident, defying a burn ban, was the culprit. People were incensed, since the fire shut the only real road between Tampa and Orlando down for DAYS. Can you say ugly communters? I knew you could.

There were thinly veiled threats to kill the guy at fault, in places like the “Ticked Off” column in the paper, and thousands more thought en masse by commuters stuck in traffic for hours each way.

In SoCal, they are in terrible trouble. The state determined the original fire was arson, and offered a 50 thousand dollar reward for the arsonist. Seems to me that anybody who knew who set the fire might not pass the squeaky clean test. After seeing the outrage, loss of principle, and wilingness to murder due to a blocked highway, I don’t think that 50K is enough to warrant opening yourself and your family to the raging insanity of hundreds of burned out homeowners.

Maybe a million? I think SoCal, if they’re serious about assigning blame and prosecuting, needs to cough up some real dough. 50K might play in Peoria, but not in the freewheeling consumer-voy ueristic land of nip and tuck.

  1. Well it really depends on what type of characters involved. I doubt that any Hollywood millionares would have any kind of connections to whatever sleaze bag started them.
