Occupier arsonists accidentally set themselves on fire

Further proof --not that more was needed--that in addition to being selfish and greedy, many of the occupiers are mighty stupid.

Two Colorado 20 somethings self described "anti government" occupiers who "wanted to 'do something to a judicial building' " decided to burn Green Mountain Falls historic town hall.

Each poured about five gallons of gasoline inside. Shaffer grabbed both gas cans and was heading toward the window when he heard the vapors ignite. He said he threw the gas cans out the window and, realizing he was on fire, rolled on the ground to extinguish the flames. He also saw that Lawrence was on fire.

One of the occupier arsonists was treated at a hospital's burn unit for second and third degree burns, the other for third degree burns to his hands and ankles. Both have been arrested, charged and are free on bond.

The innocent citizens of the town though will bear the heaviest consequences of the arsonists' destructive behavior.

The historic Green Mountain Falls building was erected in 1898 and first served as the town's school house. It was later converted into the Town Hall, and was filled with important documents. Town officials are still trying to determine which records were lost in the fire.

Unless these "anti government" punks and/or their parents responsibly purchased health insurance the cost of their care plus legal proceedings against them plus the aftermath of the building's fire will be borne by the taxpaying citizens supporting the government.

Not one tea partier committed arson; after a tea party gathering the area was cleaner than before.
