Brendan Sokaluk, accused Aussie fire starter, was a failed fire fighter
Brendan Sokaluk, the man charged with starting the fire that killed at least 21 people in Gippsland, Australia was turned down as a volunteer member of a country fire brigade, whose members cheated death fighting the bushfire.
There was a court ban stopping anyone reporting on who he is or even hinting at his identity, but he was named in the weekend. on this blog. His image is still suppressed.
Sokaluk is facing charges of arson causing death, of intentionally starting a bushfire, and of possessing child pornography. He had a MySpace page with Kevin Rudd as a friend. On the site which has been cancelled, he says that he had a “ failed relationship with someone called Alexandra which resulted in a profile comment of “my interest are to enjoy life to the fallest [sic] and not with alexandra because she roots behind your back and lies a lot. Writing about himself he says: 'I'm a young happy male who wants to meet a young loven female to marrid.'
As to who he would like to meet, he writes: 'Like to meet my sole mate not some old hag.'
However, remember, he is at present, innocent. I wonder if he`ll get a fair trial?
