UPDATE: PAUL ADDIS


Video by Scott Beale / Laughing Squid

Paul Addis, the man convicted of Felony Arson Destruction of Property for igniting the Burning Man effigy before its scheduled conflagration in 2007, was granted parole in a unanimous vote from the Nevada State Parole Board. Almost a year ago on Friday, June 27, 2008, Addis was sentenced to serve as many as four years in prison and ordered to pay restitution by the Pershing County District Court in Lovelock. A parole date has yet to be announced.

UPDATE (16:20 19 June 2009) I stand corrected. This from Amacker Bullwinkle, a close friend: "Paul was not convicted of "Felony Arson" he was convicted of "Destruction of Property." In a "Damaging Property" or "Destruction of Property" verdict, the sentence is based solely on the amount of damage claimed and proven. The amount demanded by the BORG amounted to an automatic arson charge."


The above recording is a conversation with Bullwinkle. Here she shares information of what she believed occurred regarding Addis' involvement in the Early Burn. She also shares a story of their devoted friendship to one another. Recorded at Burning Man on Wednesday 29 August 2007.

I expect Paul Addis would not be welcome at BM. Anyone know? Is he banned? I wasn't there and never saw what happened so I am neutral. Friends did say - a great variety with normally differing views - that it is entirely possible someone could have got hurt badly if anything had gone terribly wrong with the early "burn". Anyone ask Paul if it was worth it and would he do it again?
