Brazilian fire: One father said, “Those responsible are the people we elected to protect us. City Hall,” he specified. “they failed to prevent this from happening.” Another father said, “One minute my daughter is dancing, having some fun with friends — the next minute they are dead...”
I concede I was too graphic in my portrayal of school students. I retract the statement and it will not happen again. To those whom may have been offended, including Rescue Guy, my apology.
This things can happen very quickly with a delayed response to fires and an under-funding one-horse-town engine. The city is not immune to fire tragedies — in particular 29 Palms… After June 30, 2013 it’s my best opinion that local decision-makers officials will be grossly negligent. It’s a fact!
Make believes giant artsy goats, artsy iron signs on wheels, Ol boys networking funding shakedowns, $18,000 signs pointing to the 29 Palms Inn anyone, $40, 000 ChalkFest one year an one?
The Brazilian newspaper O Globo said in an editorial on an array of factors, involving “administrative ineptitude, corruption, omission of public authorities and conformity of the common citizen,” contributes to a loss of life in Brazil that is at once alarming and banal.
The real cause of the tragedy was not a unifying singular cause. Blame is staking up against authorities. This tragedies could have been prevented, or at least alleviated to a large degree had authorities done their job.
I’ll leave it to Rescue Guy to Google fire tragedies due to slow response time or administrative ineptitude. It seems to me Rescue Guy is angry at the messenger while he is in denial with false or unrealistic beliefs that what can happen will not happen. This defies the nature of all things.
The City come June 30, 2013 the city cannot protect it people or property with an inadequate and underfunded one-engine fire department. Over time there will be consequences. That is how life works. If you don’t implement your best efforts to prevent accidents, the universal doctrine of karma comes into play.
