  1. Who sent her? Who paid her mother for the job those are rhe questions that should be answered. And that girl is not 9 please

  2. Parading a minor in public is the wrong way to address the issue for starters secondly, the store didn’t seem to have working smoke detectors or sprinklers that could have limited the damage, in addition to not having proper incident response protocols.
    What the kid did is wrong, but preventive controls were clearly absent in a store open to the general public
