Lee, to my mind, someone who does this is either evil, or mental.

Either way, they need locking away forever as neither is likely curable.

this guy set fire to a hotel and risked others lives – he does not deserve sympathy.

illness is no excuse for risking others lives

society does not owe anyone a living.
