  • Tonight's episode of LAW & ORDER

    I just saw a preview of tonight's Law and Order. Looks like it's loosely based on the Rhode Island nightclub fire. It'll be interesting to see how Hollywood approaches this story-line.

    Considering several victims in West Warwick died in a bathroom with a sealed window, the opening scene of the show was in pretty poor taste.

    But what got my blood boiling AND made me proud at the same time was the footage in the show of the bodies being lined up on the sidewalk. The victims of the Station fire were NOT treated like that. The men and women of the West Warwick, Warwick, Coventry, East Greenwich fire departments (if I missed any I apologize) recovering the bodies in West Warwick KNEW better. To insinuate that the FDNY would EVER in a million years treat victims of an MCI like they were on Law and Order is absurd.


    But I'm just a $10 an hour EMT, not a prime-time TV producer.

      At least they didn't melodramatically say "The building will be my witness!" like in the CSI take on the Station fire.

        Remember that long before their was the Station nightclub fire -- there was the HappyLand Social Club fire in NYC - in the Bronx. There can be found, pictures of the bodies from that fire laid out on the sidewalk outside the social club - with white sheets laid over the deceased.

        I am not saying whether it was wrong- or right - but it is what was done.

          I made it five minutes into this show and turned it off.

          First, I agree with you guys. No where in the world do they teach to remove the bodies and stack them up. I have seen the same photos and footage from Happyland. It was unprofessional and against every single piece of training you can find for those bodies to have been stacked up like cord wood on the sidewalk. In NJ, it is illegal for anyone to move a dead body w/o the authorization of the ME. The body is a piece of evidence that needs to be documented and processed.

          Second, no way was a precinct detective gonna catch this job as primary.

          As far as the other scenes, you have to remember that this show was for entertainment purposes, not training purposes. You can always do what I did...turn it off.
