So “hot” it’s on fire : un pyromane dans le sex-shop

Billet publié le 25/08/2006

adult bookstore on fire floridaLe client d’un sex-shop de Floride, après avoir passé un moment dans une cabine vidéo, déclare au vendeur que, suite à son plaisir coupable, pour être en paix avec sa “conscience coupable”, il est obligé de mettre le feu au magasin. Il retourne dans la cabine, lui met le feu à l’aide d’essence et met ensuite le feu au reste du magasin en s’éloignant tranquillement.
J’ai eu l’occasion de parler des problèmes posés par le nettoyage des cabines (et du sale boulot associé), et là, la solution est radicale (et prise en charge par le client lui-même). On a aussi l’impression de voir une sorte d’exorcisme fou. Les télévisions locales américaines en font bien entendu leurs gros titres, avec nombre de jeux de mots et de double entendres.

Police: Man With ‘Guilty Conscience’ Sets Sex Shop Fire
Authorities in Miami are searching for a man captured on surveillance video setting fire to an adult sex store minutes after leaving a porn video booth and telling a clerk he had a “guilty conscience.”
Investigators said a man recently visited the Bird Road Adult Shop located at 74th Ave. in Miami after 3 a.m. and entered a video booth.
The report said the man left the video booth, walked up to a clerk and said he was sorry and that he had a “guilty conscience.” The man then allegedly told the clerk that he was going to have to burn the building down.
The man was videotaped dumping a flammable liquid into the aisles and into his video-viewing booth and then setting the liquid on fire.
The clerk tried to pull the man out of the booth, but the customer continued to spread flammable liquid, and set the rest of the shop on fire, police said.
As flames spread around the store, customers and employees fled.
“With the flames that you can see from the video, very, I mean with the accelerant he used, (it was a) very explosive situation,” Miami Detective Robert Williams said. “You have people from these booths running through the flames.”
“Running for their lives?” a reporter asked.
“Running for their lives in order to get out of this building,” Williams said.
Police are still searching for the man. Arson of an occupied building can carry a life prison sentence.
