Shervin Lalezary, the reserve deputy who caught the suspected arsonist, sounds like a very humble man.

Germany to pay for this? LOL, Burkharts turned out to be Chechen, originally from Chechnya...I guess one can try billing Chechnya now?
No surprises here knowing where he came from. The place where human guts were hanging off house fences.

They were ethnic Germans and thus under German immigration laws they were eligible for German citizenship which they recieved. Most likely the family wound up in Chechnya due to Stalin shuffling ethnic minority groups around the USSR...

They weren't really ethnic Germans. The mother claimed to have some partial German ancestry in her, however, being from these regions myself--FYI/for naive Westerners--I know how these things are done: out there, people pay a few bucks and government clerks make them papers claiming ancestry. You can buy papers stating you were threatened or assaulted based on your national origin as well (police report, doctors' notes), which is usually necessary for asylum claims. It's not that hard to buy papers there, considering that in Chechnya you also can order a person murdered or kidnapped for relatively "low rate". Most asylum claims in the US and Europe are based on fraud. They tried to immigrate into the US from Germany (probably to get on the US welfare while conducting underground business) based on claims of harassment by neo-Nazi affiliates in Germany. Well, it's not really possible to buy substantiating papers in Germany, too bad. The question if she really did have German blood, partially, is a really shaky one. I think they claimed that they were harassed in Germany because they were non-Germans, actually, and this was the basis of their US asylum claim.
People from there are very, very desperate (quite understandably--this is the region that, since 1990, had sustained ethnic cleansings against different nationalities plus 2 brutal wars and is one step short of explosion even now)... once, I had a Chechen resident steal my documents, in Los Angeles, and claim they were me, using my papers.
A person born and grown in Chechnya will be affected by the region's horrible situation, whatever their genes/inherent mix of nationalities is, this is unavoidable. Chechens, Ingush, Dagi, Russians, Ukrainians, Germans, Jews, Tatar, and everyone in between has suffered equally there.
