Picture this.. 2 in the morning, your entire family is sleeping and a fire happens to break out in your house,  nobody hears smoke alarms for whatever reason, and there needs to be a quick search and rescue for you, your spouse and your children.  But wait, theres no fire fighters on duty, because you wanted to get rid of the 24 hr shifts, and lower the cost by taking away 9 fire fighters from the department.  So, then it takes double the time for this to happen since people need to leave from home to get to the station to get to the scene, instead of already being manned at the station.  You will never understand how vital firefighters are to a city until something like this happens to someone close to you, especially in your own family.  If the city does not qant to pay for overtime they should hire a few more firefighters and not pay the OT out.  And do go there for the fire fighters not being stressed, many of them work on Ambulances as well, if thats the route youre going to go down.  They face just as much disease as a medic would, because many of them are EMT's to medics.

It is not like it was 100 yrs ago with all the fires there were then, but now when a fire breaks out, it is twice as dangerous with all the things burning in the fire.  So, I dont know about you, but I want my Fire fighters at work training at all times, so when something happens to my family, they are there to respond and know what they are doing.  This is tax money well spent.

He is just doing his job..

He is just doing his job.. Its idiots like these people that give us hunters a bad name.. trepassing, poaching and hunting under the influence have no place in hunting and these people should be fined and thrown in jail. Because of these people we may not have a place to hunt soon. I say good job to him, hunt, fish, boat, or fourwheel etc legally and they wont bother you.

Apparently Tweety doesnt

Apparently Tweety doesnt know This kid too well, It wasnt him that got the gun pointed at him @ 5 in the morning it was his other scumbag brother, Justin Lord. Instead of going out stabbing people maybe these guys should work more than they do, if they even do, make some money and get out of these trouble spots like real human beings usually do. These are the people that give all of Lewiston a bad name.. Lewiston is not all like this just the scumbags like these kids

I could not give a rats

I could not give a rats about this kids name.. But do think he should be severely punished for his actions in this fire.. He put hundreds of lives at risk and caused problems all over the place becuase he acted like a complete moron

These two are both

These two are both scumbags... Get a real job, go to school, stay out of jail.. Do something to atleast seem like you want to earn atleast a little bit of what you are getting for free.. Act like a real human being, confess and give up.. Because of these two and their family, a man is dead, but still nothing happening to them

Absolutely, the scum

Absolutely, the scum downtown give the entire city a bad name.. there is just as much scum bags in Rumford AND Auburn etc. they are all over the place.. Just more in Lewiston cause its so big.. People shouldnt be putting all of Lewiston into the same category, downtown Lewiston and Auburn should just break off and form their own city away from the rest of the working people

Hey everyone lets keep it

Hey everyone lets keep it positive! Kind of hard to do that in a situation like this.. dont you think??? Sunshine the blame is on all of the "adults" in this situation the mom and the boyfriend for not knowing where their own daughter was at any point in time.. and the 3 "grown men" for runnning like cowards when they saw fire, and not picking up an innocent 9 year old girl. I feel sorry for the other kids in the family if their own parents dont watch them well enough to know they are sleeping out at night. Im very sorry for their loss, but they arent further from the blame then the other cowards are. Hopefully now she can rest in peace and live a decent life up there. RIP
