  • FF kills comrade!!!

    It appears that a firefighter (?) is responsible for setting the fire that resulted in the death of a fellow firefighter while responding. Many on these forums have expressed their desire to see the two homeless people from Worcester crucified for setting an accidental fire.
    What do you think this ******* should be charged with?

    I am not a lawyer so I don't know what the severest charge could be but I would hope it would be severe enough to impose the death penalty. Anyone convicted of arson should face the death penalty if it causes a fatality, especially in the case of a firefighter fatality. And considering the scumbag charged with setting the fire was a firefighter that should make the charges that much MORE severe. This seems to be a sad story which keeps repeating itself and I for one am not sure how we as a group can stem this trend short of more stringent background and psychological testing of applicants both career and volunteer.

      This is so disgusting I don't even know what to post. I knew it would only be a matter of time before a fire set by a firefighter would take the life of a comrade. The sick feeling I get just thinking about this news, and what it will do to the families and especially the five children left without a father. The bail should have been set a lot higher so he doesn't have the chance of getting out for awhile.

        These situations are just horrible. I feel sorry for the wife and 5 children left without their husband/father. I believe strongly this guy should get the worst penalty out there.

          One man dedicated to being a Volunteer with a wife and children at home dies as a result of some *******{ who calls him-self a firefighter } setting a fire just so he can respond to extinguish it. This is a down right disgrace to the service. It would be against the law for me to say what I'd like to see happen to him -- He dosen't deserve to even breathe. Unfortunately I'm not versed in the law so I don't know what will be involved. But the biggest punishment of all is to the little children and the wife of the firefighter that was killed -- they no longer have a daddy or a husband --- what will the arsonist get ? 3 hots and a cot...probably exercise facilities and a work program. Will he live with guilt for what he's done ?...I doubt it but all the while he'll proclaim his innocence and that he was disturbed. This whole thing disgusts me to no end --- Not only did he commit arson but now a death results from his act and in my mind he is a murderer and should be fried .... not given the needle { that's too easy and painless } I say Cook his *** -- --- My thoughts and Prayers are with the Family and Station that the deceased firefighter served

            This is incredible. I am severly disheartened to hear of such a travesty. All we can do is pray for the family of our fallen brother and hope that this degenerate gets the most severe punishment that the law provides. To anyone that would concider starting a fire to fight it, please remember this, and think of the wife and the five kids that no longer have a father to look up to, but now a hero they will never forget. Peace and stay safe.

              First, my thoughts and prayers go the family of the fallen brother and members of his department. It is hard enough to lose a family member or friend but this just makes it hurt so much more. Well, this guy was no fireman. He was a CRIMINAL in fireman's clothing. Plain and simple.

              I'm not sure what the background check process is in Missouri. Here in NY each new member must undergo a check for PRIOR arson related offenses. It only works if the person has been caught before.

              What do I think they should do with this guy? First, lock him up until his day in court. Deny him the freedoms that we enjoy daily. Next, charge him with manslaughter to say the least. He willingly put others in harm's way by setting the fire. The end result was a death of a firefigher in the performance of his duties. If they can make the argument for murder, then they should. Having posed as a firefighter (I can't call him one)he was fully aware of the inherent risks of responding in an emergency vehicle.

              As far as the penalty phase, give him the maximum penalty allowed by law. Hopefully they will be able to try him for a type of homicide or manslaughter. If he qualifies for a capital offense, I say give him the electric chair. A needle is too gentle. Unfortunately, he may get away with just prison time. We can only hope he will never be able to do this again whatever the court decides. Stay safe out there everyone.

                This is serious, not sarcastic:

                Let him have Brewster Fire Chief gear and let him knock on crack house doors for the cops.

                Then, if he lives, we can tie him to a pumper & drag him.

                Nice and slow for a while.

                    let him go everyday and look every citizen and the family of the fallen firefighters in the eyes and tell them what he did and why he did it. Then put him back in his cell and show him the pictures of what his victims looked like before and after. and one other thing let him have no contact with his family or friends. he will slowly go insane. But, this will be impossible to do as this would be called cruel and unjust punishment. thanks for letting me have a say LC

                      As I sit here pondering this situation, trying to think of a well thought out response to this thread. As I weigh the facts as I know them, Consider the law from a layman's point of view, reflect upon the experiences I have had in my seventeen years in the fire service, and review my own personal feelings and emotions, I can't think of a better way to respond than "BucksEng91."

                      Well said brother

                        We now have a permanent maintenance person for the flowers and grounds at the Fallen Firefighters Memorial in Emmitsburg but please dont let him be present for the annual ceremony. He may get the death penalty another way from those that do care. At the very least maybe we ought to start a letter writing campaign to him in jail. Lets get his address and send him some of our feelings starting with the feelings of the fallen firefighter's family.

                          I see today that he pleads guilty to setting the fire...goes into court and says he's innocent meaning he wants to get off for being a killer. $20,000 Bail ? What kind of BullSh** is that ? He'll be gone faster than any of us can blink....His actions resulted in the death of another human being and he is allowed to walk free after paying a percentage of the bail ?...Like I said yesterday I'm no law educated individual but I seriously don't think that is the right way to handle the situation. The Police have a confession what more do they need ? Some Hot-Shot Lawyer is going to defend this monster and swing some shifty deal with the prosecution to get him a lesser sentance. Did anyone ever wonder why the woman holding the scales of justice is crying ? ...Because she can't stand to see lawyers make deals...He's guilty...He admitted it and should pay for it with his own life. PLAIN, PURE, AND SIMPLE !!!!

                              Oh, and by the way......I like the suggestion toissues him Brewster FF's gear and let him knock on some drug house doors!! Then we can use what happens to him; as an exapmle of why we dont send FF's (or cops disguised as FF's) to do cop work!!!!
