I beg to differ with Mr. Costa. NO firefighters were shot at during the Memphis Fire & Police strike in 1978. That is a fabrication. I do remember having several M-16's pointed at Striking firefighters by National Guard with them saying "pow,pow!"to taunt and intimidate.

I was there during the strike (a student at Christian Brothers College), and the news reports most certainly described shots being fired at the temp firefighters.
