The question is more important than the answer!
Police Officers refusing to render assistance to someone in need because of a past history.
Paramedics refusing to render life saving techniques to a driver involved in a MVA accident because he smells like a brewery.
Firefighters standing idly by with all of their equipment by their side because someone didn't pay their $75 bill and may be an asshole.
Perhaps they need to find another job. They're a disgrace to their profession.
UPDATED DC lieutenant finally put on desk duty - Firehouse receiving death threats | Statter911
You can see the full statement from lieutenant Davis at the link provided.There is new information about the investigation of a man who had a heart attack right across from a D.C. firehouse. Cecil Mills collapsed in Northeast D.C. on Saturday and later died. People were screaming for help, but no one from the firehouse responded. Now FOX 5 has learned the lieutenant in charge of that firehouse appears to be throwing one of her own under the bus. The lieutenant’s name is Kellene Davis. She has been removed from command.
She wrote a letter to Fire Chief Kenneth Ellerbe. In it, she is blaming the whole thing on a firefighter who she says disobeyed her command. On Thursday, we got our hands on a letter Lt. Davis sent to Chief Ellerbe which she titled an “Unusual Occurrence.”
Mayor Vincent Gray has promised a quick conclusion to the investigation. He says he was outraged by the firefighters’ behavior.
Those arent idiotic rules, in some places taxes do not pay for, or cover all, emergency services. This person had what many of us wish we had...the ability to opt out of a 'tax'. In this case it's actually paying for a service but for most of us, it's a tax.
But if you make that choice, then why should you expect a different result?
They found her on the floor by the front door. She died of smoke inhalation. Did that 10-15 minutes make a difference? Don't know.
