    Accused SMC Arsonist Blames Zombies, Cults: Prosecutors





    SAN MATEO COUNTY, CA — A woman accused of setting two fires in Half Moon Bay within one week is now behind bars on charges of arson— and apparently has some bizarre reasons for sparking the blazes, including zombies and cults, authorities say.
    On Tuesday, she pleaded not guilty to arson charges. Sheriff's officials on Wednesday released the booking photo of Monica Louise Berlin, who is accused of causing approximately $20,000 in damages in the recent fires.
    Berlin was found and ultimately arrested on Friday after police pegged her as the suspect in the case. However, it wasn't until after a brief police pursuit throughout part of the Peninsula that she was taken into custody, according to San Mateo County Sheriff's Det. Rosemerry Blankswade.

    It might work because of her gender. I have a feeling a man in this same situation could have a long standing history of schizophrenia with evidence of being in a current break and still get 10 years in prison. But a woman? Probably just mentioning zombies will do

    Hopefully all people will be treated as humanely. We do not need harsher laws for women -- we need humane laws for all. Norway is a great example.

    George Washington and Thomas Jefferson abolished breaking on the wheel and hanging in chains for everyone.
