A drunk. You said "we pay" and you are absolutely right. I, for one, am tired of paying for the mistakes of others.

He is typical of the members of the volunteer fire department in Milton. A truer bunch of losers can't be found.

Ahh here they all go again....talking shit ....everyone makes mistakes...yes even every one of you! Put yourselves in the firefighters shoes...ohhh no...I can hear all you haters...."I would NEVER do that!" BULLSHIT!! You don't know until you are in that situation. And the next time you make a silly mistake, knowing it wasn't intentional, your tune will change when everyone is bad mouthing you! Yes, I'm sure a drunk firefighter can be scary. But who really knows how much he had or if he wasn't just drinking a beer socially and there was an emergency and he responded to HELP someone knowing he was putting his reputation on the line having been drinking. Obviously that thought meant little to him, he only cared about helping someone. I personally have to applaud someone putting others first, not caring about their own reputation. He couldn't have been too drunk, he had the brains to respond to a cry for help! So before you cast stones, put yourselves in their shoes without the thought "I'm better than that and I would NEVER do that!"
As for the idiot who said case closed...no its not...your opinion is not the case nor does it close it. Nor does anyone elses opinion mean they are right...we all have different opinions and as long as you're not spreading hate its ok to vocalize it but stop thinking your opinion has all the answers.

All one can do is pray for Mr. Hook. He is a lost soul, truly. Everyone who has any interaction with him can tell there is something evil inside of him. I know that it's understandable, too, considering everything he's went through. I don't blame him or judge him, I just know he wants to die or go back to prison and he is torturing himself until that day comes. Watch what you say about others on here, because no matter how strong you are, you may find yourself in a similar situation.

I just want to tell you that no matter what has happened and what happened that night, the man that you guys talk so bad about is a man that has the most integrity and is the most stand up man I have ever known in my life. No matter where he has come from this man will go when he is called. I bet the people that are writing the bad things about him has never walked a mile in his shoes. When your baby isn't breathing and you need someone to go help he would drop it all and run out the door. I have never seen a man work as hard as this man to raise his family and become what he has. So next time your house is on fire or you smell gas and you call upon my brother I bet you don't think about the mistake he made. When you need someone to listen or stand up for you I bet you don't think then about the mistake he made. I bet when your kid needs someone to pull him out of a car and my brother is there to pull him out and save his life I bet you don't then think about the mistake he made. When you yourself are in trouble and need somebody to answer that call I bet then you don't think about the mistake he made. I bet your just thankful somebody cared enough to answer that call. You people that judge him have no business he will be judged when he goes before the only man that can judge him. If you want to judge or speak your mind why aren't you there to answer the calls that he does. That is one of the greatest most amazing men I've ever known. You can only hope someday that you yourself could be a man like him.
