Posted on 12/31/2011 1:59:20 PM PST by La Enchiladita
At least 16 cars burned Saturday morning in Los Angeles bringing the total number of suspected arson fires to 44 over the last two days, sources told ABC News.
In nearly every case, the fires were set in cars parked in and around the Hollywood area. In some cases, the flames spread to nearby buildings.
Investigators have not determined a motive behind the blazes, nor have they established whether they are the work of one person or the efforts of people acting together.
They are looking at all possibilities behind the blazes, especially the prospect of a serial arsonist on the loose.
San Fernando fire captain George Villegas says some people have been questioned for the crimes.

French Muslims? Out of control Amish?
Probably Occupy Wall St. miscreants who can’t get to the homes of the 1%ers.
This won’t compare to what these idiots will do when Zer0 loses the election.
Whoever they are, they appear to be well-organized. The fires are set in rapid succession a few minutes apart. Also, police say there is a similar m.o. in all fires, without adding particulars. I assume the fires are all started with some sort of device.....
The one guy they caught was Amish.
“Suspected Arson”? As opposed to spontaneous combustion?
Fewer funds for welfare, steady encroachment by Mexicans on their traditional role of privileged minority, entitlement mentality, recent sudden release of many of them from prison, inspiration provided by muzzies:
YUTES —a guess.
“Whoever they are, they appear to be well-organized.”
The latest Wired Magazine had an article about the use of social networking and/or Blackberry Messenger Service to organize thuggery.
One guy arrested look like one of those out of control Amish, doncha think?
-——some sort of device.....——
insert a lit cigarette into a match pack, pour gas under the vehicle, place the lit cig/matches on the gas . When the cig burns down, the matches ignite the gas and the tires/car burn
Well, there are at least three obvious candidates:
3. A flash mob, which in recently reported cases have consisted of black youts.
If, as the authorities suggest, there are a LOT of people involved, then it’s probably 2 or 3.
Unfortunately, it would be politically incorrect to say that any of these groups are involved, so we may never know for sure.
They will be found—people can’t keep their moths shut about their deeds—they will boast—I bet its part of OWS but it could be any number of things. The truth will come out in time.
Looks like they have discovered the cheapest weapon of all. Wondered how long it would take......
I guess they're not ruling out a careless chain-smoker.
I have no idea who it might be, but revenge as a motive keeps coming to mind.....
There should be “shoot on sight” orders out for those arsonists. Instead the authorities are afraid to even get suspicious.
You forgot zombies.
A muslim terrorist cell would have the discipline to remain silent.
Zombies just eat people. They can’t start fires. Sheesh! :)
Was in the garden today and noticed the Santa Ana winds here in the IE. Was thinking geez I hope some nut is not out setting fire with the wind up. Seems to happen all to frequently. Stay safe SoCal.
Fire’s the one thing zombies fear. That and automatic shotguns.
I hate to say it but 44 fires in one night such as this without getting caught is quite an accomplishment. Very sad for the victims and concerning for the firefighters. The resources it took last night . . . some freak is getting their rocks off with causing chaos. My guess is a serial killer personality type. Loner or a well organized small group. Most likely a single person. Easier to control the outcome that way.
Hope I am wrong though. Maybe the SOB will be in the precinct in a few hours.
That's one trick. These documents describe lots more.
Animal Liberation Front, "Arson-Around With Auntie ALF." This was once available as free download from the ALF web site. It has been removed. However, an Internet search will locate several sources. (Describes various incendiary devices)
Earth Liberation Front, "Setting Fires With Electrical Timers: An Earth Liberation Front Guide, May, 2001." This was formerly available from the ELF web site. It has been removed from the site. However, an Internet search will locate several sources. (Describes electrical igniters for incendiaries)
Those are free. The following you have to pay for.
Department of the Army, Incendiaries, TM 31-201-1, Randle, WA, Bohica Concepts, 1966. Also available from Gold Nugget Army Surplus.
Anonymous, CIA Field Expedient Incendiary Manual, available from Paladin Press. (Good discussion of delay devices)
Whitney, Lyle, "Black Book of Arson," El Dorado, AR, Desert Publications, 1987. (discusses the physics of fires, and how to set them effectively)
Lots of information out there, just in case you ever need it.
The week before the election,remove any GOP bumperstickers from you car and yard signs from your house.
Stock up on ammo and stuff you can use to barracde you house.
The natives will be restless. Like a nationwide NBA champion win,the urban areaswill explode
Organizing a flash mob is one thing . Getting materials for over 40 incendiary devices ,building the incendiary devices,distributing the incendiary devices & doing it without leaving a trail that can be followed by a drunken blind man takes a modest amount of smarts & organizational skills as well as a serious motivation not something from your average gangbanger skill set.
My guess is Ocuppy supporters with college education maybe following the helpful hints from the ELF(Earth Liberation Front),
