"The cause of the blaze remains unclear, but some residents believe it could've been sparked by drug addicts that have settled in the area."

Compelling evidence.

You're sick, Bozo.

How much was the insurance on the house? And was it set with accelerants in conspicuous places, or was it an electrical fire?

Then blame it on the drug users. Add the dead dog in for good measure.

It'd make an excellent episode of Columbo.

If Venice Beach is so lawless and thus frequented by unpredictable drug users, why not mount a campaign by the Venice Beach Police to rid the area of vagrants? Or move. If you've got the cash to live on Venice Beach, you've got the money to move. Or just take a .30-06 to the ne'er-do=wells. Oh, wait, this isn't Texas.

"Almost 62 percent of fires in Los Angeles this year are homeless-related, according to the LAFD. Twenty-one percent are homeless-caused fires classified as arson. Although the LAFD numbers are not broken down, at least 16 L.A. fires this year occurred at encampments in Venice."

A link would be nice, instead of having to take what you typed as Gospel straight out of your -------. Pervert.

Why so much hostility? Maybe the homeless did burn her out and kill her dog. Maybe it was accidental,or possibly not. Let the investigation go where it leads. I have nothing invested here,why do you guys? It's clearly possible it was arson,or it could have been an accident of some sort, or she could have burned herself for insurance, yeah,right. I doubt she would have killed her own dog that way.

You guys are nutters.

It's the general attitude towards the homeless, which I see is the difference between the two ideologies. Alot of people are homeless by choice, which I surmise, is usually the problem. A family who is homeless isnt trying to hang out behind someone's home dealing drugs. The problem is these vagrants who choice it is to be homeless and just sit in front of society and scream deal with me.

No link from BOAZO.

He is his own undeniable source of truth.
