USA: Poster girl for euthanasia-Raw Story

March 5, 2012

[FACT comments: Some might blame this senseless act, from which the entire planet has no hope of recovery, on ya ba or the carelessness of youth or just another American with no sense of history. Whatever, it’s an excellent argument for euthanasia. A life sentence just would not be enough. 1.73956 times older than JC, in fact.]

Raw Story: February 29, 2012

A 26-year-old Floridian woman admitted to burning down one of the oldest trees in the world Tuesday afternoon.

According to WFTV, Sara Barnes was arrested after admitting she set The Senator, a 3,500 year old bald cypress tree, on fire on a mid-January night in Longwood, Florida.

Barnes, a regular drug user who was smoking meth with a friend at the time, lit the tree on fire so that she could see in the dark but could not stop it from spreading.

“I can’t believe I burned down a tree older then Jesus,” Barnes told authorities before taken into custody by police.

The Senator, which became a landmark in Longwood, was the fifth oldest tree in the world.
