http://www.windstream.net/news/read.php ... %3E&ps=931 What's wrong with us as Americans that we have become so bloodthirsty, these guys are there to protect us from fires & now fires are used to trap & kill them. There has to be an answer.

Depravity is nothing new, I think perhaps we're now more hyper-sensitive and with new media things happen and reported at previously unheard of speed, as well as unconfirmed reports.

I read the other day that more people are killed in Chicago every week than Newtown. Granted most of them are gang bangers and thugs etc..but none the less, people there are actually numb to it as are most everyone, except of course the victims of Newtown being small children.

Then again that reminds me, 20 children died in Waco at the hands of our goverment, 4 unarmed students were shot dead at Kent State, 13yr old Sam Weaver (in the back) and his mom Victoria (in the head) were both gunned down in Idaho.

So what I get from all this is, it's OK if the Gub'mnt is doing the shooting nobody is calling for them to hand in their weapons.

The ambulance company my wife used to work for had to take the logos of the trucks and issue body armor because they saved a gang banger.

The gang that shot him apparently took great offense to this and held a grudge for quite some time.

This guy was a real piece of work. Thank God we had laws and such to restrain him. :roll:

had spent 17 years in prison for beating his grandmother to death with a hammer in 1980, police said.


He committed "assault" with a hammer..."assault hammer"? Where is the call to ban hammers over 6 ounces?

Why was this guy walking around free after murdering someone? Had to make room in prison for a non violent black kid caught with a bag of pot for his "third strike"?

Richard, I know it's no new in some areas, back near & in Pittsburgh there are a lot of neighborhoods where both fire & EMS have to wait for police escorts & since even that has died out (most likely because of the escorts). What struck me as unusual was it being mostly a resort type area with volunteer fire, it's not like the demented mind is somehow getting back at the evil Gov., these guys could be friends & neighbors, next they will be hitting churches during mass or some other thing, it's the demented mind more than anything else IMO.
