This is what disturbs me the most -
"Berken has a history of both financial and legal troubles. In 1995, he was released from the Stillwater prison after serving 20 months for theft and forgery charges.

There are also question about how Berken got his firefighting job. As the former owner of Forest Lake Ford in 2005, Berken donated a truck to the Forest Lake Fire Department around the same time he was hired. Coincidentally, that donated truck was a Ford F-350, equipped with a pup to fight grass fires.

Berken also has a conviction on federal charges of putting out false aircraft distress signals."

OK the dude is clearly not right in the head here. Based on previous charges there is no way in hell this chucklehead could get past the HR form to the interview stage for any dept in this area.

There is a paper out that was published in 2003 on why firefighters commit arson. Basically its the need to be needed and the hero factor.
