“The fire was just to get us moving, now the audience will get to see some real fun. When I hear the next hiss, I flatten on the ground, not taking time to look. The fireball hits a tree off to my left, engulfing it in flames. To remain still is death. I’m barely on my feet before the third ball hits the ground where I was lying, sending a pillar of fire up behind me. Time loses meaning now as I frantically try to dodge the attacks. I can’t see where they’re being launched from, but it’s not a hovercraft.” (p.175)
This shows that the people in Capitol are very brutal and violent because it says that they want to see some deaths and people getting hurt is a big excitement for them.
This also shows that they don't care about people's lives.
