4 firefighters shot, 2 killed, many homes burned...


Normally I don't post up bad news like this but this is only 4 miles from my house. One of the firefighters who was shot/wounded is a guy I graduated high school with. I have a bunch of friends who are really good friends with him. He is ok but still listed in critical condition at the hospital. Still can't believe this happened so close to home.

Convicted Felon crazy person with access to guns it seems???
Looks like it. What a terrible shame.

Spengler served 17 years for beating his 92-year-old grandmother, Rose Spengler, to death with a hammer. He was released in 1998, prosecutors said, and his parole ended in 2006. He was a convicted felon and should not have had a firearm, Pickering said.

The entire Fire service is feeling this one, it could happen to any of us on any call in the best or worst neighborhoods. Next time you hear someone mouthing off about lazy overpaid pension sucking firefighters please punch them in the mouth as hard as you can.

Every day its just getting worse in this damn country. Nothing is sacred, no one is safe. Goddamn Mayans were either right or whatever it is that runs the universe has quite a sense of humor. Maybe the Mayans just forgot to carry a one or something...

Yup. Nothing you can do. Better stock up the prepper-den and switch the tard-knob to "¡muy macho caliente vigilante!"
