They are investigating the fires in California! Quite possibly arson. What do you think they should do if they catch them? My opinion would be totally biased, so please give me your opinions?

depends on who did it and why.

A mentally deranged person with no real motive other than "I like fire"
A politically motivated eco-terrorist trying to prove 'global warming'
A politically motivated alt-right trying to punish evil leftists
A drunk teenager smoking doobies on every hiking trial to understand nature

Never one-size fits all

Vic you are right. Sadly sometimes the person who likes setting fires is a fireman. That happens sometimes . They want the excitement work and pay a big fire would cause. Whoever it was they should go to jail especially if it was a careless smoker throwing butts around carelessly. Only good thing about a fire is the cleaning out it does, leaving fresh areas and ash for new plants to grow.

Arson is deliberate, so I would charge them with murder and put them away for life, possibly in solitary confinement.

If it is arson we potentially have hell on our hands.
Should we be fortunate enough to make an arrest give due process then fill their lungs with smoke from their burning flesh until dead.
Yep not unlike the couple ages 99 and 100,married 75 years who wouldn't leave each other only to die in misery minding their own business in their home.

It kinda depends on the context, whether someone got hurt, was it the owner hoping to get some insurance money, was it someone else so on.

When I fantasize my solution would be to put them in a tanning booth, turn it on high, then bring them out after they've had a good "tan". Then put them back in there, for another great "tan."

But in reality, they should be charged with murder and prosecuted to the extent of the law.... say life in prison.....
