The liquor store arsonist committed a serious crime, just as any other arsonist does. The fact that this arsonist had some sort of agenda should make no difference in their punishment. The fact is that they committed the crime of arson, they endangered people and destroyed property, and they must be jailed for this offense.
Arson is a crime any way that you look at it. It could have taken several people’s lives. Yes, this person should spend some time in jail if he committed the crime of arson. Not all first-time offenses should bring jail time, but this particular offense could have ended in death for other humans.
Arson is far more common than people realize. In addition to destroying goods, arson creates a problem because it puts people's lives in danger. The fire fighters that have to put out arson have to risk their lives because someone wanted to start a fire. This should be severely punished as a lesson to others.
