[QUOTE who="No Hero What exactly do you know about firefighting?[/QUOTE]
Enough to know that MOST Central Florida firefighters are milking the hero thing for every pension dollar they can squeeze out of the taxpayer. MOST of these FFs have never seen anything more that a trailer blaze. Surround and drown is pretty much it.

Let me make sure I understand...it would be less "sleazy" to sweep it under the rug than to fire the crooks stealing from the City? What kind of idiot are you? Ahh, you must be someone close to the crooks, and so naturally you are defending them. It's like the parent who blames the teacher when their child gets in trouble. I hope Evans "cans" everyone he finds stealing from the taxpayers!
Well I think that you are close to the crooks Evans and Perry to make such a statement. He should can everyone who steals from the city starting with Jakki Perry then down the line. Guess what tellingitlikeitis the city would have no employees.

I wondered how long it would take the fire union bozos to come out of the woodwork. I work in Leesburg and have watched these buffoons burn a house down. Started in the garage and they successfully pushed it all the way through the house until it was completely involved in fire.
No comparison to FDNY. I have yet to see high rises, tenaments, dock warehouses, or shipyard fires in Leesburg. These small town yokels only think they are heroes...that's why they brag about it. Real heroes don't brag.
what ya say Gary, you hit the nail right on the head

What would actually be refreshing, would be an honest account of the facts from Leesburg officials. How can they call two career professionals exemplerary employees and then fire them? Sounds a bit fishy to me. And I agree, sweeping anything under the rug is dilaterious. I think it's time for an honest, outside investigation of the city officials and the Leesburg Fire Department. You don't have to be close to this situation to think something doesn't add up! <quoted text>
now see there you must be from another planet like me cause we think alike.
