One Day After Media Reports Car Arsons Have Abated Since Arrest of Homeless Woman ... They're Back Again!
The big question is -- was the "real" arsonist waiting for a chance to tweak the authorities? Or was the much repeated media statement that the abatement of the fires was the only reason the cops have to link Chan to the blazes an inducement for someone to run out and burn a car?
We noted earlier today that, logisitically, it seems to be a stretch to pin all of the fires on an aging homeless woman. Unless Chan had a car (or a ride), was a deceptively speedy bike rider, or is the world's fastest 60ish homeless woman, it'd be damn near impossible to zip around town at the speeds the auto arsonist apparently did.
This morning's blaze wasn't the only good news for Chan, by the way. KTVU-TV, reporting on the incident, listed her as "16 years old." That's got to be nice.
