Default Enough of this shit

Rochester-area firefighters shot at scene of fire, two killed - YNN, Your News Now

Firefighters responding to a fire were shot and killed. I am seriously so sick of this shit, especially the people they target. Firemen? Really? They are coming to save your sorry ass.

RIP.

maybe the NRA can get some volunteers with automatic weapons to follow the fire trucks around, like they want to do in the schools.


in case it's not obvious (especially to the Americans)... this is called sarcasm

I'm probably jumping the gun (ba BOOM boom) but I've moved this thread to politics. I just have this feeling....

Yea, I didn't mean for it to be a gun debate. We already have that.

Woke up to this news and was automatically sick to my stomach. It's pathetic that as a firefighter I'm much more scared of being beaten or shot at than getting hurt in a fire. I've been in situation at college housing during an automatic alarm and our crew (of 4) was jumped by literally 30 people... because they didn't want us seeing what caused the alarm. We DON'T rat out why the alarm goes off (unless it's life threatening). We were lucky we had axes and other shit to ward them off a little bit.

I'm ranting, my apologizes.

This is going to be a difficult time for the community. My heart and thoughts go out to the families, friends and fire department.


[edit]
to the dead scumbag who did this, fuck you. it's fucking christmas eve and you're ruining it for lifetime for families, friends, and a community. I hope you fucking burn in the deepest pits of hell. /rantover

Radio traffic from wounded firefighters in Webster, NY. | STATter911.com

This is audio from the incident if anyone is interested. I'm sure it could bring up some discussion. All I ask is please respect those that were involved in the incident. Thanks.

I can hardly wait to listen to the NRA explain how this is caused by everything except guns.

I'll admit, I like to shoot.

I've always felt that the biggest problems with incidents like this are a) mental illness and the lack of help those that are mentally ill receive and b) the current laws are not strictly enforced... but this has hit close to home in more ways than one, and it's making me question the use of many types of guns. However, I'll still stick by my thought that if we as a society do not HELP those that are mentally ill then they will continue to do this shit, just with other forms of violence. Ending the use of guns is not the end all solution.

[edit]
Here's my example... this fucking prick murdered his grandmother with a hammer some years ago. Why wasn't the mother fucker put in jail for life, or executed? It's CLEAR he had mental issues and clearly did not get enough help
