The DA says: “There is no evidence that either juvenile, both of whom live in agricultural communities in the Midwest, was aware that the burning would be a substantial and unjustifiable risk that would cause forest land to burn”. The message here is that playing with matches is not inherently wrong, as long as you're from out of town, a major victory for irresponsible tourist kids everywhere.
