The face of an arsonist?

with 5 comments

Victorian police have released a composite photo of a man wanted for questioning.

The man in the composite photo, who police say is in his early 20s and has a dark complexion, is believed to have information about a suspicious fire at Ivanhoe East, in Melbourne’s north-east.

What do you think justice demands if they catch any arsonist?

  1. Simple Greg, due process and a fair trial.

    It’s easy to let emotion take over at a time like this, but it’s counter-productive in the long run.

  2. Wrong answer Dave! (I was trying to suck in the extremists)

  3. Don’t worry Greg, I doubt you’d have to look too hard to find pockets of the web rubbing their hands together with glee because the identikit image ‘looks like a moooslum’.

  4. It seems the fellow arrested for arson is a psychologically mess with child pornography charges added to that of arson. Is the crime of this man any different to that of Julian Knight of ‘Hoddle Street Massacre’ fame.

    Julian Knight is considered evil on both sides of the law. Should we feel the same towards an arsonist who inadvertently killed more people than Julian Knight or should we feel sympathy because of his mental condition?

    In both cases, perpetrators of mass murder need to be permanently removed from society for our own safety.

  5. The massive public focus on arsonists was probably responsible for inspiring the copycats like the one in Ivanhoe. There were also a few arson attempts through the week in the country areas. The investigation should have been conducted in a more covert style until all the hysteria had died down.
