    Australia - Volunteer Firefighter arrested over 13 fires

    Volunteer arrested over 13 fires


    A VOLUNTEER firefighter is expected to face more than a dozen charges over a spate of deliberately lit bushfires.
    NSW Police have spent four months investigating 56 suspicious grassfires and bushfires near Inverell, in the state's north.

    The fires, most of which started in roadside areas, burnt out hundreds of hectares of crown land and private property.

    Police arrested a 23-year-old volunteer firefighter early today at Inverell. He is expected to be charged with 13 counts of intentionally starting fires.

    New England crime manager Detective Inspector Greig Stier said “other fires remain under investigation”.

    The most recent fire happened on Friday.

    Sounds OK - he obviously liked his job, and was afraid to run out of work.

    Indeed fires spread out set up by firefighters. This way they ensure themselves fat salaries with little or no work.

    " VOLUNTEER " firefighter =

    Unpaid person performing a task for the communtity when the need arises. Not working in the city or areas protected by professionals, mainly operating in country areas where there are no full time professionals firefighters.

    Have never heard of a professional firefighter lighting fires in my city as we are busy enough dealing with a variety of tasks involving the community, we see the real deal on more than enough occasions and are happy when we dont get called out.

    Unfortunately some volunteers cannot wait for the call as they do it part time for kicks, most are good fellas but there are a few muppets amoungst them who get a tad silly and reach for the matches.

    They pay a high price these days as the law is severe and this fool will surely go to jail.

    Hope this info helps you sort fact from fiction you silly little man.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    Work my arse off for a few months at a time and take the time in credits instead of cash.

    I don't think volunteers get paid Gaudente.

    I just think he is a nutter and a very dangerous one at that.

    If you have ever experienced a wild fire it is the most horrifying experience you could imagine. And for idiots to deliberately light fires they deserve a long time in the slammer to think about it.

    I think they do instead. Besides, they start as "volunteers" hoping to be subsequently hired full time. And what works better for that than a big increase in fire spreadouts ?

    You quite obviously are just an ignorant fool, who believes all that is written by the gutter press.

    However coming out with comments like this, certainly make you look like you read the gutter press, and believe it too.
