    This story is one of those that screams that there is more to the story. Something isn't right. When something sounds too ridiculous to be true, there usually is more to the story.
    That's what I thought. That's why I immediately read the story... and it happened, just the way the woman and witnesses said it happened. The firefighters refused to cross the street without an official dispatch, and one of the firefighters actually stood in the doorway and watched. Unbelievable.

    Probably misguided fear of liability against law suit lottery.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    If this is actually what happened......

    Emergency Response can't respond without a "proper 911" call????

    They can't walk/run across the street????
    They can respond, its called a still alarm and it happens all the time.
    Oneexception is if this was outside of that particular fire stations response area, but thats not covered in the article.

    Thats a major concern. The left appears to love litigation and everyone has to pay for it.

They stood there and watched his house burn to the ground. Yeah i know, the homeowner messed up, he didn't pay that $80 bucks. Still the firefighters took the time to go there and stood and watched it burn. How about put out the fire and get the $80 later. Common sense prevails. How any firefighter or someone trained in life saving techniques can just stand there and do nothing is beyond me.

    Firefighters put out fires and administer life saving techniques to those that require them. At least that's what they're trained to do until idiotic rules come into play.
    I remember that story. IIRC there's a long back-story to that where the homeowner spent years making trouble for the city, and the firefighters final had enough of his bull****. It wasn't just $80, he had all kinds of unpaid local taxes, fines for trash on his property, home was about to foreclose...the $80 was just one of many things he didn't pay. That guy was an asshole.

    Isn't it interesting that none of that info made the article?
