    One thing that everybody has wrong is everything in a fire house with the exception of the city’s computers ranges and stoves, all are paid for by the firefighters the TVs and microwaves all are paid for by firefighters themselves!

    Wow, disappointing and a disgrace. Now it would be wrong if they just stop serving in that community. Stories like this makes me very angry and its very sadden that it is happening to the ones that is there to help serve in that community. First,. target of the police and now the firefighters. I see why the city so segregated cause it’s too many want to be thugs and kids with no self-disciple running around destroying their own communities. I hope they caught who ever have done this.
