Another home firebombed

Family member was burned in yet another firebomb attack on a home.

There is no indication that this attack was related at all to the last reported incident. We wonder if this family is involved in a court trial, so if anyone knows please let our readers know.

Another family is living in terror after an unknown person used a Molotov cocktail to set their home alight. Do we have a problem on this island? What the heck is happening lately?

If we consider some news stories, we have to wonder…

Here are two stories from The Nation.

You should visit the paper’s website to read the stories, but we have to reprint them here in their entirety because that paper sometimes removes stories for political purposes…

Scary firebomb attack (Nation story here)

THE Gill family of Jubilee Gap, Martindales Road, St Michael, are living in fear.

One week ago, someone threw what is believed to be a Molotov cocktail into the house they are renting, injuring a family member, damaging furniture and clothing and leaving the house in an uninhabitable state.

And the family are so traumatized that they do not want to remain there but have nowhere else to go.

Deliberate fire in St. Philip “Irresponsible madness”

Who ordered this toilet?

Wednesday night at around 11:30pm fire was set to a plot of land in Travelers Av., Fortescue, St.Philip. If it wasn’t for the neighbor who immediately alerted the fire department and their prompt response, the fire could have raged out of control and threatened several houses in the area.

It is not difficult to guess who lit the fire. In the morning a brand new portable toilet was delivered to the same site!

Another display of irresponsible madness and a total lack of consideration for the safety and health of others.
