Ghetto 'tude
#1
I'm sure most of you have seen about the fire in Philly that killed some kids and gutted four row homes.

What annoys me is that the other day, these people were angrily protesting (NOT peacefully) at the firehouse, which was located around the corner from the fire) for taking "30 minutes" to respond.

The firehouse has released the official timeline, calls and everything, showing only a few minutes elapsed. There was also a witness saying only about five minutes....the main truck was at a car fire and had to leave that scene to come to the row homes.

I'm so tired of this angry, protesting attitude that everything is somebody else's fault. What about whoever started the fire? But no, the "slow" (unsaid: racist) firefighters caused those kids to die.

Gosh, I hate ghetto attitude. (And no, that's not racist. I know white ghetto people.)

They should be protesting the guy who wasted who knows how much time trying to put out a fire on his own instead of 1st calling 911

I wonder if the fire itself was racist.

Fire can burn white, but not black...so yeah, fire is totally racist.

It'd be interesting to know if any of those houses had working smoke detectors too. I think it is BS they are giving the firefighters a hard time. They get a call, they respond. Fires are also becoming more rare these days because a) more houses have working smoke detectors, and b) a lot of stuff made today is fire resistant. Whenever a call comes out for a working fire (fire growing, uncontrolled) in progress, Philly firefighters try to get there ASAP. By laying down in front of the ladder truck during a protest, you're doing more harm than good by preventing them from quickly responding to an emergency. These residents should be happy to have a professional fire department that is always staffed and ready for emergencies. In most suburbs it is only volunteers and their response times probably aren't as good since the volunteers have to stop what they are doing, drive to the fire house, gear up, then drive to the emergency.

Our EMS system is also a joke in the city. Ambulances are not taxis to the hospital. They should be used for emergencies only. This is why it takes forever to get an ambulance in the city. A lot of times fire trucks have to be dispatched to provide assistance until an ambulance arrives. It is also against department policy for any vehicle other than an ambulance to transport a victim to the hospital. Not too long ago, a LT or Captain got written up and punished for saving a person's life by transporting them in his fire truck instead of waiting for an ambulance. I think this protest is just more entitlement bullshit. People thing they are entitled for an ambulance ride when their tummy is upset and entitled to a 30 second response time as soon as they dial 911.

Philly Pat....I did see in one article that the Red Cross was going around the neighborhood (after the fact) handing out fire detectors.....so that may very well answer your question.

I don't know my Philly areas too well, but seems this happened smack dab in the center of one of the ghettos....their attitude just reeks. I know they are grieving the kids, but instead of just grieving the kids, they have to lash out in hate, as if the world did them wrong? I believe the kids died in the original house that caught fire as well...so they need to figure out how the fire started instead of screaming at the fire department.

They were lashing out with hate because some moron was going around telling the people that it took the FD an hour or 2 to get there. So instead of getting the facts they turned to mob mentality and went after the PFD.

Just bring back the bucket brigades and sit back and watch the ensuing giant conflagration.
