IWA For Sunday 101010

I just can't let this go.

Hey folks,

Yes, as we wrap things up with our IWA, you have to realize something. I am really still thinking about this. This really pissed me off. I understand it most likely has something to do with me being a Firefighter in my younger years, and the fact I KNOW what a fire is capable of. Maybe it's because I went to a Big Manson, TWICE. Maybe because I have seen the Death and Destruction first hand. Maybe it's because I RESPECT Fire. But this?

This was guys doing what they were told to do, which is NOT doing their Jobs. How anyone could stand back and watch it happen while a Resident is doing what little they can to protect their Home. I still want to know if those on the scene KNEW that their were animals inside.

I do not care about this Asinine Policy, the reason, nor how long it has been in place. This is a CLEAR example of looking at a situation and saying, there has to be a better way. Other than MANDATED, and Government Ordered Extortion. Pay or else.

I could award MANY different people in this situation. But the one that bothers me the most is the Mayor. Mayor David Crocker. Him saying this,

"Anybody that's not inside the city limits of South Fulton, it's a service we offer. Either they accept it or they don't."
Pay up or else. Your Home could burn to the ground. Sounds Like Extortion to me. When Cranick realized he was on his own, he begged the Firefighters to help, he says he told the operator he would pay whatever is necessary to have the fire put out. Our Idiot's response?

"If we let residence pay on the spot, no one would pay until their home was on fire."
So again, Pay up or else. MANY people are not happy with this. I'm glad that this is getting National attention. Hey Mayor, I got news for ya. Guess who's coming for dinner? Philanthropy Team Mobilizing Thousands of Pet Lovers to Protest Tennessee Mayor and Fire Chief
The Philanthropy Team, LLC - an Arizona-based company specializing in helping non profit animal welfare groups, today announced that it is mobilizing thousands of pet lovers nationwide to demand the termination of South Fulton, Tennessee's Mayor David Crocker and Fire Chief David Wilds for their irresponsible actions and complete disregard of life for allowing four family pets to die in a house fire last week
Let this be a message to all other area's out there, across the Nation. DO NOT FOLLOW Fulton, Tennessee's example.

Surprise, AZ (PRWEB) October 7, 2010

The Philanthropy Team, LLC - an Arizona-based company specializing in helping non profit animal shelters, today announced that it is mobilizing thousands of pet lovers nationwide to demand the termination of South Fulton, Tennessee's Mayor David Crocker and Fire Chief David Wilds for their irresponsible actions and complete disregard of life for allowing four family pets to die in a house fire last week. Firefighters from South Fulton, Tennessee let a home burn to the ground last week because the homeowner, Gene Cranick, forgot to pay the annual $75 fire policy fee. The Cranick family lost all of their possessions and their four beloved pets - three dogs and one cat - died by burning alive. The city of South Fulton REFUSED to respond because the family forgot to pay the $75 annual fee.

The Philanthropy Team is using an on-line viral campaign and social media to alert over 6,000 animal lovers from all 50 states to write letters, call and e-mail the City Commissioners of South Fulton, TN to immediately terminate the Mayor and Fire Chief. Pet lovers wishing to join this crusade can visit the home page of The Philanthropy Team to "Join the Protest" by clicking on the Take Action Now button or by donating to the cause.

Donations are also being collected to fund placement of a full page ad in the Union City Daily Messenger and The Obion County Weekly demanding the immediate resignation of South Fulton Mayor David Crocker and Fire Chief David Wilds for their role in allowing four beloved family pets to perish in a preventable house fire. Funds raised above and beyond what is needed to fund the advertisements will be used to help the Cranick family. The Philanthropy Team is also forming a team of protesters to descend upon South Fulton city hall in the coming weeks.

The Philanthropy Team has successfully mobilized thousands of pet lovers before using on-line viral marketing campaigns and social media outlets. They previously collected thousands of signatures to protest Congress's Crush Video Ban as well as to protest a Mesa, AZ restaurant that served lion meat. In both instances, animal lovers nationwide responded by sending/placing thousands of calls and e-mails that flooded designated recipients.
Congratulations Mayor, David Crocker, you ARE the Idiot of the Week. For your blind following of an insane and possibly illegal Rule, even though that Life was ended, and your lack to show any empathy or remorse. The Blood of those Animals are on YOUR hands. Imagine if a Person Died there. I would be standing on the front line calling for you to be locked up. I still think you should be charged. Fired to say the least.
Peter
