Cross-eyed arsonist caught, jailed because of crossed eyes2/22/2012
Mask? Check. Lighter? Check. Sunglasses? Uh-oh. An arsonist who torched a lingerie store, a bakery and a post office during last summer's London riots has been arrested and jailed, thanks to an officer who spotted his noticeably crossed eyes on security camera footage. Andrew Burls (whom The Evening Standard referred to as "the liar who set pants on fire") was sentenced on Tuesday to eight years in jail after pleading guilty to two counts of arson and one count of burglary. According to the Daily Mail, the blazes started by Burls resulted in over $1.5 million in damages and left six people homeless.
Is an eight year sentence long enough?
