So it’s come to this: Firefighters rush out to douse a brush fire, then return
to find someone took their wallets.
That’s what happened Sept. 6 to Kauai’s
firefighters based at the Waimea station. Officials believe the blaze near
Russian Fort was set intentionally as a diversion, with thieves waiting until
the firefighters left and then ripping them off.
That’s cold. And downright
unfair, not that other crimes aren’t. What’s next for these burglars: Tricking
schoolchildren out of their lunch money? Yelling fire in a theater and then
raiding the concession stand?
If the firehouse thieves are caught, make
them wash firetrucks every day for a year-with their toothbrushes.
