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.

While i hear words spoke about being safe when possible, but not sacrificing service for safety. If anything, i see firefighters more aggressive than when i started many years back due to the increased protection…

Well done. You make some awesome points. In regards to the "numbers".....(and kind of backing up your thought of changing tactics), we have often wondered why there is so much emphasis on RIT and the RIT/Industrial complex. I'm on Chicago and have worked in the Chicago Suburbs for almost 20 years. We've seen the advent…

“Over safetyification”... Dave, that is the best description of what those who want to prevent us from doing the job want to do to the job.
