I don’t know if God exists or not, but if it does, I think he’d probably be responsible for stories like this one. It’s a small bit of cosmic justice that these morons fully deserved.
A witness told police two people were trying to siphon gas Wednesday night in a Tacoma church parking lot. As the witness approached and startled the suspects, the fire broke out.
Police spokesman Mark Fulghum told The News Tribune both suspects, the van and a nearby vehicle caught fire. The man was able to put out his own flames and fled before police arrived.
The witness used a garden house to douse the woman. She was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and is expected to recover.
Alright, so maybe the penalty for siphoning gas really shouldn’t be that you must be set on fire, but you get the idea. Steal from a charity and the universe or Jesus himself will smite you with fire.
I also have to admire the mental capacity of someone to actually run and grab and turn on a garden hose as a woman is literally on FIRE in front of you. I’d probably just stand there and eventually yell “STOP DROP AND ROLL.”
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
