Official: Los Angeles arson suspect under investigation in Germany

A German man due to appear in a Los Angeles court Wednesday in connection with one of the worst arson sprees in the city's history is also under investigation for arson and fraud in his home country, a prosecution official in Germany said.
Harry Burkhart, 24, was arrested in Los Angeles early Monday after a string of 52 fires - mostly in parked cars - since Friday. He faces an arraignment hearing Wednesday morning.
No one was hurt in the fires, but property damage is likely to reach $3 million, authorities said.

    So, it's not just the hispanics that we need to keep an eye on huh? Now do you see how ridiculous these new laws targeted against hispanics and mexicans are? We should keep a general eye on our entire population. Hell, why not deport repeat offenders to guantanamo bay? We could then make room for immigrants who want to make better lives for themselves. Why not place limits on how much money made in the U.S. that can be sent to other countries by those who work here?

    What's more WE SHOULD BE KEEPING OUR EYES ON THE CHINESE!! Hello dumb a*sses! They are the one's who want to sink us so they can be the top nation in the world. Leave the mexicans and hispanics alone! They only want to work so they can eat! Ra*cists are so stupid they can only focus on minute unimportant details rather than what really is important.
