Why? I wonder if this person is well known to the church pastoral care?

This fire was started by children on school holidays, and those children just so happen to belong to one of those “great” families who are responsible for the majority of crime in this town. They run riot on these streets, tiny kids running and playing naked in the street, animals just being thrown away like rubbish into someone else’s front yard, and if you dare go past either thier house or anyone they happen to be friends with – make sure your wearing a helmet becasue a full can of that disgusting woodstock shit is commin for your head. Little turds think they can do what they like, becasue there is no way to stop them – they serve their times in whatever jail they go to and then come back worse, the matriarch of the family is just an Ice junkie ( they got their own mum hooked on when they sold it) and she continues to breed until the very near day i go and kick her in her wound! – dirty bitch with dirty kids and grandkids – please excuse my rant, but i am fed up with being near people like this, i love this town, i love almost everyone in it’s borders – but i swear to god, i am about this _ close to getting me some vigilante justice.

I hear that a large cache of toys destined for poverty stricken parts of Asia were destroyed. Very sad.

I blame their Mothers.

Interesting. Based on your other posts I thought it would be the village’s fault, rather than the parents.

I expected Violet to blame either the victim or the police. That is who she believes are responsible for all crime…..just never the person who actually did it…it’s never their fault.

No, the villagers are too busy trying to accommodate “up and coming” ballerinas and learner drivers because those bloody mothers weren’t good enough to instill those talents in them from birth.

A hint of humour, good to see Violet.

Living around the corner and being awake at the time. I saw nothing, sorry.

HOWEVER – was there really a need for the firies and police to have their sirens on while zooming through suburban streets ?? Surely lights would have been enough ??

I am 50 metres from that school and i smelled no smoke and saw nothing to be suspicious of. And yeh the sirens were a bit much – the firemen from last weeks Spence fire were nice enough to just use the lights.
