Fire Truck Crashes Into House, Injures Several

I love our Baltimore City Fire Department, but the warning also needs to go out to give them plenty of room. This evening in a tragic case, we learn four firefighters were rushed to Shock Trauma after the truck ran off the road and crashed into several houses. The local paper reports.

You may recall it was just two years ago, another city fire truck was found to be at fault in an accident that killed a pair of civilians (see story)

Notable in both accidents is the calls for service both turned out to be unfounded. Today's was a house fire that never was, the other one was smoke showing in an apartment. Turned out to be a pot burning on a stove.

As a former volunteer firefighter/rescuer/EMT, I have nothing but the utmost respect for firemen. My father was also a volunteer on a ladder truck company. If you see them speeding down the road, stay the hell out the way. They could be rushing to save a life. Alternatively, by giving a wide berth, the life you save may be your own.

To all those who willfully, deliberately and routinely violate the civil rights of law abiding American Citizens; Yes, you're powerful. Sure, you're everywhere. But this is still America, and the Constitution of the United States Of America still reigns supreme as the law of the land. The Baltimore Spectator will vigorously and aggressively defend against any and all attempts at spying and suppression. Let it be known to all that we are already aware of the regular monitoring and shadowing attempts. There is nothing to hide, but cross the line and there will be hell to pay.

In the end, efforts to impinge upon the freedoms of the people will ultimately fail. Some of us may get taken out in the ongoing battle for true and lasting freedom, but as I've said many times before, and will say till the day I die or get taken out by you goons, THERE ARE MORE OF US, THAN THERE ARE OF YOU.
