An unemployed woman already facing charges of arson, was hit with another arrest warrant yesterday. This time for trying to burn down the apartment complex where she lives.
The new charge accuses 30-year-old Hisako Kasahara with attempted arson of an inhabited building, as the fire-loving female set fire to a cloth covering a washing machine on the second-floor of the complex. Fortunately however she only succeeding in burning part of the roof, and none of the other residents were injured. Although a few of them did suffer mild smoke inhalation.
During questioning Kasahara-san admitted to the allegations, explaining her behaviour with a unique brand of twisted logic. “I was having trouble paying rent. I thought I wouldn’t have to pay it if the entire apartment complex burnt down.”
A statement that contains an element of truth. I suppose.
