> Lopez was booked in the Multnomah County Detention Center on charges of reckless burning and second-degree disorderly conduct. He was released and arrested again Monday morning for allegedly starting six small more fires. Good lord. This dude is a serious menace.

Damn Jacksonville transplants. “I’m telling you, Molotov cocktails work. Anytime I had a problem and I threw a Molotov cocktail, boom! Right away, I had a different problem.” Jason Mandoza.

I don’t understand. Some people are thrown in jail for parking tickets, and this dude is let out and does more damage. Incredible.

It’s possible to acknowledge that some of the fires have been started by arsonists while still disagreeing that all the fires in California and the PNW are part of a liberal Antifa BLM plot to burn down the west coast.

Before people freak out about this dude too much he wasn’t responsible for the giant fires that threaten Portland or Salem. >Police said they responded to a report of multiple fires burning along the west side of I-205 at around 3:30 a.m. Monday. Portland Fire and Rescue extinguished three of the fires and community members put out the other three. No one was injured and no structures were burned. Police said they found Lopez walking along the shoulder and arrested him. They seized a lighter as evidence. Still this dude should definitely be held in a psych ward if he has this much of a desire to commit arson.
