Why do idiots intentionally start bushfires in Australia?

Update:

The Queensland police had to open fire on a moron arsonist in order to apprehend him after he was starting fires in rural areas. People do this on a scarily frequent basis but what compels them to just watch the world burn?

Update 2:

37% of bushfires in Australia are considered suspicious whereas 13% are proven to be started with malicious intent. During Black Saturday several fires were initially set which left 173 people dead and tens of millions of dollars worth of damage to property. The 400 bushfires across Victoria on Black Saturday gave off the equivalent energy of 1,500 atomic bombs.

They should shoot these cretins on sight. Stop doing it!

    They have a mental condition where they get a thrill watching the emergency services putting out fires. To them it gives them a thrill similar to a teenage boy watching porn. They just cant help themselves. We had a local fire brigade person who seemed very keen. He would always seem to be first there at fires until one day he was spotted lighting one and they realised he was in the fire brigade as he got off on watching and being part of the team putting them out. He did prison time.

    That is an excellent question! Each year I get very ticked off at these fire bugs who like to intentionally start bushfires. It really ticks me off, it puts people’s lives in danger and these people should be charged with attempted murder. Anyway, it has to do with their mental health suffering from something called ‘Pyromania’ l. These people are fascinated by fire and will go to great extremes to burn a huge part of that area.

    I can't help thinking the teenagers that typically do this stuff are neglected by deadbeat parents who are on drugs/alcohol and collecting welfare.

    I think they're practicing so they can get it right when they come to the States. Or maybe we have a different set of idiots. Rather depressing to think there are two sets of idiots don't you think?
