Enough is enough!
I'm here minding my own business and the sirens are on again! They've been like this since the weekend. It's another bloody fire! Today when I was driving to work the news on the radio was: "Seis incêndios ainda lavram...", when I was driving back from work, the news awas again: "Fogos nos distritos de xpto...". I am at home and there go the firefighters again. I'm really pissed off!
One of the marvels of English is that there is a name for this. It is called ARSON! In Portuguese I believe we only have the verbal form: "incendiar" or "deitar fogo a". Well in English, ARSON is to deliberately set property on fire with the intention of destroying it. It's a crime, of course. And those who make it are arsonists. In Portuguese we have the "incendiários" and, if language doesn't fail me, there is also "pirómanos", correct me if I'm wrong. Well, the thing is, when are we going to seriously start thinking that these "incendiários" are really a danger to society? And stop thinking that they are just ignorant lumberjacks wanting easy profit or poor illiterate people of low socioeconomic background that we should feel sorry for?
You destroy the forests, you should get justice for it!
Sorry, I'm really furious and not thinking clearly!
