So yesterday my GF's sister in Oregon said that Antifa was setting fires --23 in 24 hours-- all along access roads.

I googled it and saw multile stories where the media said it was a conspiracy theory, it's not true, stop repeating it, erc. (The govenor said the fires are due to "Climate change".) But in her little town near Medford, the PD was like, let us know if you see anything, arsonists ARE starting fires."

...Well they just caught an Antifa activist in the act of starting a wildfire. He was livestreaming it.

So much for all the stories claiming it was a conspiracy.

93% of the fires didn’t actually burn anyone’s house down

In a time where we need to find common ground, can’t we all agree these acts of arson were mostly peaceful?

I have said from the start of the riots, arsonists should be shot on site, really. People could die because of what they do. It’s one thing to smash a window, it’s another to start a fire that could cause an explosion and kill innocent people.

Jed - I have said from the start of the riots, arsonists should be shot on site, really. People could die because of what they do. It’s one thing to smash a window, it’s another to start a fire that could cause an explosion and kill innocent people.

The loss of life here in Oregon is unknown but it isn't a low number...hundreds missing right now.

Not to mention peoples homes(nearing a thousand homes) and their livestock and pets.

Hearing talk that the Holiday Farm Fire was arson and it is one of the biggest and most devastating...Some say power lines were knocked down by wind but most of the power up there was turned off before the winds.

It really pisses me off because if it is arson they are affecting millions of peoples lively hoods and lives.

Shoot on site or quick justice should be a considered...this truly is domestic terrorism.

Saying Antifa started a wildfire is like saying skateboarders started a wildfire.

Remember when we said to follow official sources only. Remember when we said rumors make this already difficult incident...

"Remember when we said to follow official sources only. Remember when we said rumors make this already difficult incident even harder? Rumors spread just like wildfire and now our 9-1-1 dispatchers and professional staff are being overrun with requests for information and inquiries on an UNTRUE rumor that 6 Antifa members have been arrested for setting fires in DOUGLAS COUNTY, OREGON.

THIS IS NOT TRUE! Unfortunately, people are spreading this rumor and it is causing problems.

Do your part, STOP. SPREADING. RUMORS! Follow official sources of information such as local emergency response websites and pages, government websites and pages and local reputable news outlets.

Please, share far and wide!"

PIERCE COUNTY, Wash. — The Puyallup man suspected of setting fire to the dry brush along Highway 167 two days ago was in court today.

Police say he called 911, waited for them to arrive and live-streamed the entire incident.

The judge said he would not release him on bail, as he is also suspected of burglary.It was a subdued Jeffrey Alan Acord who faced a Pierce County judge, claiming that he saw flames along Highway 167 and called 911.

Other drivers, however,, told police they watched the 36-year-old Puyallup man walk into a field carrying a lighter and cardboard.
In court, Acord readily answered Judge Jerry Costello’s questions and continued to speak.
“The court has found probable cause to believe that Mr. Acord is,” said the judge, his voice trailing off.
“It was a mistake, sir,” said Acord. “I thought I would offer that.”
“Well, Mr. Acord, it’s not my role today to decide whether these facts can be proven,” said Judge Costello. “But I have concluded that probable cause supports this charge.”
A regular attendee at Seattle “defund police” rallies, Acord faced a similar charge in 2014, arrested for allegedly putting a road flare under a car during a protest in Seattle.
Officers said they found a knife, a loaded handgun without a permit, an assault rifle and a large amount of fireworks.
Acord also faces a second charge for allegedly breaking into a gas station hours after his initial release for reckless burning.

Still, his lawyer argued that with his minimal criminal history, he should be released.
The judge disagreed.
“I have strong concerns about the safety of the community,” said Judge Costello.
Despite what his lawyer said, court records show Acord has a long criminal history.
He faces seven other cases from this year alone.

With that, he ordered Acord to be held on $150,000 bail.

Sure sounds like an antifa set a fire to try to cause mass death and destruction.
