Are there more pyromaniacs out there than ever before?

By Mrs . Created on 22 Feb, 2021
More empty buildings and bushland than ever seem to be going up in flames. CCTV cameras are usually able to catch the "bored kids" that torch the buildings, but bushland is harder.

Funnily, in NSW there are a lot of them in the RFS!

Unfortunately - worldwide - Pyros are attracted to volunteering with fire services. The proximity to fire and watching people fight it thrills them. Fortunately there are also many great Fireies who are there for us all when needed.

How would anyone ever know? What difference does personal opinion make?
Mrs said on Mar 9, 2021
All questions asked and answered by those of us on this site are purely personal opinion. Accept for the "MyView Surveys" they make a difference. I am interested in other peoples personal opinions. So I put a question. Anyone who is not interested is welcome to ignore any question I ask. Just as I can ignore any question anyone else asks.
Yes there are more pyromaniacs.

More people living in Australia now and many had mental issues etc. Of course with more people more pyromaniacs are part of those numbers. Simple maths.

Valid point.

What a dumb question
Mrs said on Mar 2, 2021
Do you always use your manners so nicely? Or only when you are having a bad day?
No there have always been pyromaniacs.

There have been pyromaniacs always the fact that now we know more is because of the internet.
Mrs said on Mar 2, 2021
But I don't read the internet. Only the local paper.

Name and shame pyromaniacs. And harsher penalties are required to deter future fire bugs.
Yes there are more pyromaniacs.

Seems to be on the increase

I think having motorbikes to jump on and ride into the bush out of site helps.
