LA Arson Suspect Identified, Possibly Motivated by Deportation Battle
By RICHARD ESPOSITO, RAY HOMER, KATIE KINDELAN and COLLEEN CURRY
Good Morning America – 15 hrs ago

Officials this evening identified a man arrested after a series of 52 blazes in the Los Angeles area as Harry Burkhart, 24.

Burkhart was charged this afternoon with one count of arson of an inhabited dwelling, with more charges expected as the investigation proceeds, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa told reporters. Burkhart was being held without bail.

"These were serious and potentially deadly crimes that needlessly endangered thousands of innocent lives," Villaraigosa said. "These crimes will not be tolerated."

According to ABC News sources directly involved in the case, the "prime suspect" under arrest told authorities upon his detention, "I hate America."

If the boy hates America, I suggest we send him on his merry way as soon as he’s released from prison.

Authorities say “fire starting materials” were found in the minivan which police processed as evidence.

“I feel very good that we’ve got the right guy,” Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck said.”(The suspect) had the right stuff in his van, and we are very confident we found our man.”

You know, he kind of has that over-fed oily look to him, in a Perez Hilton kind of way.

Wonder if he's...umm...Brokeback or something?

Cheers!

If you hate America Harry you are really going to be disappointed in prison.

It wouldn’t suprise me since he not only looks like Perez Hitlon, but he also set the fires in West Hollywood which is a hive for queers.

If he were an illegal from Mexico or Central American — hey! No problem!! Stay as long as you like! Want to drive? Great! Go right ahead - you don’t need to carry insurance, have a license or be legal to drive on California’s roads. No worry — Beck and Villar (real name) will make sure your car is not towed.

“These were serious and potentially deadly crimes that needlessly endangered thousands of innocent lives,” Villaraigosa said. “These crimes will not be tolerated.”

Not like unlicensed drivers allowed to drive on LA’s roads, right Villar? You made SURE that illegals without insurance and licenses are allowed to drive and not have their cars towed even though unlicensed drivers cause 20% of all fatal accidents in California.

These crimes WILL BE TOLERATED!!

Hypocrite!!

I live on the other side of town. The smoke drifted over my way and backed up against the mountains where I live. Smelled like a giant chemical fire, horrible!

Wish he’d tried to set a few fires down my block — he would have received a face full of lead.

Ron Paul and his supporters blame US immigration policy and say those targeted by the arsonist , brought it on themselves.

I see that Tony Villar managed to drag himself out of the bed of his reporter-whore in order to play act at being Mayor for a few hours.

According to the LA Times, he was a German national, had Chechen travel papers, and his mother is “Russian.” His mother is in the process of being deported. There’s a lot of possibilities here.

Gee, why is the poor guys Mother being deported while Obama’s Illegal DUI Uncle and his Illegal freeloading, Welfare receiving, Public Housing using, Food Stamp shopping Aunt get to stay.

No wonder he was pissed off.

I have to wonder why he didn't commit arson closer to home, like Liberal Seattle.

The level of damage that he, at 24, is alleged to have done is quite impressive. It sounds like a case right out of a TV show.

Chechens are technically Russians since Chechnya is incorporated into Russian Federation and residents are geven Russian passports.

It tells a lot about this guy because biting a feeding hand is a long Chechen tradition.

They don’t want deportation as they are to end up back in Russia there she is possibly wanted for terrorism making arsons and bombs against Russians while accepting Russian food stamps.

“had Chechen travel papers”
 
"Hmmmm, a Muzzie perchance?"
From that LATimes article:
"The suspected arsonist is a 24-year-old German national who carried travel papers from Chechnya. He had spent time in Germany, they said, but had lived in Southern California for the last several years."
Anti-American who spent time in Germany, was from Muslim part of the world and was in the US illegally!

Sound just like Mohamed Atta.

What else would a sane person expect, when the only thing the Federal Government on the foreign invaders here to destroy America is to give the invaders more rights and benefits?

And the response of so many GOP presidential contenders is to merely try to sell the same poison with sugar coating (DreamAct, PathToCitizenship, etc.).

City News Service says the elder Burkhart was actually wanted in Germany ...

... on 19 counts of fraud, most stemming from allegations that she bilked apartment renters out of security deposits ...

... and that an arrest warrant was issued for her in 2007. Note here that we found a 2008 copyright notice on one of the sites linked to her phone number.
