Burn, Baby, Burn

Talk about burning your bridges! An attorney in Virginia was charged with setting a fire at her former law firm in 2007 and again in 2008.

Ashely Shreve, an attorney and graduate of West Virginia University College of Law, was charged with second-degree arson and attempted arson in West Virginia. She started the blaze by torching a box of legal documents in her assistant’s office, as well as a burning wad of tissue in the bathroom.

She also sent in two bomb threats to the law office and one to an insurance company. DNA did her in the police found her DNA on an envelope that she used to send in the threats.

I think I understand how people can snap and do crazy things like this. What if one day that voice that says, you’ll regret it, don’t do it, doesn’t kick in when a jerk on a bicycle almost runs into you and you push him off in a moment of insanity? What if you just have had enough crap and you can’t take it anymore? I think this is something we’re going to see more and more of as more people are left without employment and hope.
