    Is this a personal attack against 27 (as of now) posters on this forum?
    I think so!
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    OK, I read that someone ordered the firefighters not to put out fires in places where the owners hadn't paid some local fee. Technically the decision to stand and watch is right but on every other standpoint this is just indefensible.

    I will accept that I am not familiar with the US system of public services and the "every man for himself" culture that seems prevalent but I have to accept that this case was in America. No UK firefighters over here would allow themselves to be put into such a position, no local populace would allow a fire chief to run such a policy. The only way I could agree the "technical" view of this would be if the firefighters were a totally private company hired to very protect specific private property and the fire was not on the private property.

    Are there any details on this story in any major news webistes so I can get more details?

    At the very least, if these guys were employed by a private company then phone for some real firefighters to come and do the job. Don't stand and watch any property burn to the ground.
