Though in Valparaíso area are they are almost the norm these days, this one today is really outstanding, with multiple centres.

Please have a look at the photos in the article.

There is a very special kind of wind today. This is rare, strong and dry, very hot, South to SE, E, or a bit to SW.

This kind of wind may be known to those living down to 8 or 9 region. There, this is usually from over the Andes, from the East or South East (dry, hot and it lasts 2 or 3 days generally).

Good on the witnesses that busted them.

They may be sentenced under terrorism laws.

Of course that wont help the people that lose life or property from this reckless criminal behaviour.

Pleading for no one to March today, as Valparaiso region burns , https://www.biobiochile.cl/noticias/nac ... -hoy.shtml

I'm sure these were just regular pyros and not associated with any of this, or am I,? 🤔. it maybe a minority as people dismiss the criminals that have roamed the streets and used this state of chaos to carry out their perverse criminal fantasies, and take advantage of the situation. It maybe a minority that just love disaster and death, or are so fucking stupid they just go with the pack mentality, whatever . There are some really sick people out there, and if we are not going to give them a bullet then we need to give them serious help and rehabilitation or something, even if they are a minority . A violent disruptive and dangerous minority , a minority that can infringe hugely on innocent and law abiding citizens right to life and security, if they are not controlled one way or another by the state people will start taking matters into their own hands.
