Why We Search:Michigan Teens Ditch Class and Videotape Themselves Setting Fire In Empty Warehouse

Teens ditch school to play with fire inside Waterford warehouse.


Three ninth graders from Waterford Michigan skipped school, not to hang out at a friend’s house and play Call Of Duty, but to break into an empty warehouse and videotape themselves setting a fire.

On 18 January the boys broke into the “unoccupied” warehouse and set fire to paper towels. The trio laughed aloud while filming their escapade until the fire grew and the alarm system activated, then they fled. One of them realized he had left his cell phone inside and ran back in to retrieve it. Sprinklers knocked down the fire and a police K9 tracked down the juveniles.

Very well written. I couldn't agree more with your statements. The problems are many, but they perpetuate and increase with every new class of recruits that are poisoned with the idea that anyone who feels unsafe has a responsibility to act and stop whatever is going on. When I came on, my instructors told me…

Atta boy David, customer service or customer satisfaction? The line is fine, and more often than not we can accomplish both with action, and a kind demeanor.
