Our sympathies to Mr. Cranick over the loss of his home (more here), as well as the dogs and the family cat (and I think some of those other fires that weren’t put out should be looked at also, including the one where the horses were killed).
I know every firefighter who allowed this man and his family to lose their possessions over a $75 fee should be fired. The only question I have is whether or not any of them should be prosecuted.
Update 10/5/10: And why am I not surprised by this?
Update 10/6/10: And didn’t this guy call for a return to God, or something, at that little Bund rally of his last month?
