"Twenty four seven news continues. Now on KOMO news. The fire that burned down a Jehovah's Witness kingdom hall and Lacey Friday is considered suspicious, but it's caused hasn't officially been determined. Komo's Charlie Harger tells us there have been similar fires and other kingdom halls over the past couple of months, and he spoke to a profiler about it psychologist. Joel voskan has researched and provided expert testimony about motivations for arson. I asked him for his take on what's happening in Thurston county. I'm sure that one hypothesis they'll be exploring his people who have some kind of grievance either real or perceived that they believe they've been harmed by that particular denomination. You hope that people talk about their grievances before they resort to fire which will make their job easier because it's just a question of finding out who expressed rage against that denomination. There's a lot of reasons why people said fires, but one. That's not infrequent anger. And at least there's one theory. That's frequently adhere to by many professionals that it's a kind of a primitive way of expressing rage. And the people who have other options for expressing rates may be less likely to use fire. So for example, sometimes people sue people when they're angry at but not everybody has equal access to lawyers and stuff like that. Or or knows enough to think about how to express their grievances. Intellectual capacity. What do we know about that? Well, one thing that's been written about frequently is that people who are more limited intellectually are more likely to use fire to express rage because they have fewer other option, but I'm very cautious about those kind of findings because the people that we know about the arsonists that we know about are the ones who got caught it, sir. Certainly possible that people who are more limited in lecture may be more likely to be caught arson. Investigators will tell you that quite a few are since may be more than half are for profit and are much less likely to result in prosecution precisely because people know what they're doing and ways that make it more difficult to determine who committed the crime. Do you worry this arsonists could strike again? We don't always know. So if somebody didn't get identified and prosecuted and a crime stopped. We don't know why they stopped. We could the person have been arrested for something else. Could they have felt like okay? My I paid them back. Now, I'm done that they have received some type of counseling or therapy for some other reason, you know, we again, we only know what we know. And it's really important for us to be humble about how much we don't know about these phenomena that psychologist and expert witness Dr Joel voskan on. Charlie harder. Komo news.
