L.A. Arsonist: ‘I Hate America’

by Daniel Foster

A German man who allegedly set over fifty fires in Los Angeles over a four-day period — doing millions of dollars in damage and putting lives at risk — apparently told police “I hate America” as he was arrested.

The suspect, 24-year-old Harry Burkhart, was reportedly upset the by legal troubles — specifically the immigration troubles — of his mother. But whether this is a case of mental imbalance or something more premeditated remains to be seen.
