By golly, the insurance adjuster should have just told them they were going to raise there rates if they filed a claim. Mine threatens to raise mine if I so much as call and ask a simple question. The way I see it I'm paying my premiums so the crooks filing false claims can get a paycheck. Mine's pretty much useless, even when it comes to storm damage. My agent is a great salesperson though. Bless there heart they've got me overinsured for almost every calamity that won't ever happen.

as shown on DSM register the lawsuit states Klines had to have something to do with it because they were the only 2 adults in the house as Klines they think the arsonist was invited in and made himself or herself known? I'm sure that is how most arsonists do their work is to invite themselves in unless it is an ex-wife

If this true I hope that the people don't get a dime. I know that they won' serve any time in prison and if they do it will be more of like a slap on the wrist. It's because of people like this that our insurance rates keep going up.

As always, guilty until proven innocent. Let the courts do their thing, then you can decide.

I have said it before and I will say it again, this town is the most crooked town around. It is so crooked I call it Far North New Orleans.

Let me explain, we have local level politicians in positions that don't pay hardly nothing, they then get or already had cushy jobs with "the connected bunch". The Connected Bunch then go to their employee politicians and get whatever they need done. They also take advantage of the fact that Iowans almost never ever throw a politican out. Look at how long KNOWN FELON Archie Brooks was around, and I bet he could win an election without even trying. Brooks had to actually quit because Iowans were never gonna vote him out. Remember the last time we voted out a US Senator or Governor?

Anyway back to the crime. Want an example? Archie Brooks works for Ruan. Ruan controls the cab co.(yellow and capitol are the same, they have two names to fool the stupid) Ruan used Brooks and his friends in City Hall to make it very hard for a new cab co to enter DM by enacting local laws and policy dictating a huge amount of insurance and how they needed to have a full fledged dispatch.

Knapp used his connections to sell Ankeny land to DOT at a huge profit to open the new DOT office. Des Moines is now the only state capitol without a full fledged driver's station in it's city limits.

How do they payoff people? They do it indirectly, for a favor they will sign a contract or do buisness with the politians brother or kids or brother in law and so on. Maybe an interest free loan on a new car, a job for a friend, a payment to a friend for "consulting"......

I know John and Michelle Kline. They are good people and would never burn down their own home. Everyone thinks because John made lots of money over the years that he must be guilty of something. All of you are just jealous of him. He employed many people and paid them really good money over the years. His company fell with the collapse of the housing market, which caught most of us by surprise. He just happened to have skin in the game. So please don’t jump to conclusions about this family as they are really good people.
