That last video was informative, but the first I guess no longer exists? I thought the person interviewed in that last video was being honest and
The woman in the "I'm looking for my 15 minutes of fame video" was not impressive. She tried to be nuisance to get the response she wanted. If I
were the person in the ambulance, I'd be mad at her, not the people who were trying to respect my privacy. Every neighborhood has a busybody looking
for dirt. She fits that bill nicely.
The Officer did not seem out of line at all. He was asked to keep her away and he did his job. She may have read the Constitution, but she forgot her
rights end where they conflict with others rights. Emergency workers have every right to be bothered by obvious rubberneckers looking for fresh
gossip. That is not reporting, its just being a public nuisance. Had she approached them respectfully, she probably could have gotten her questions
answered, but she chose to bully her way into the middle of things. You don't report news by creating news. She got what she wanted, here on ATS
I'd say the guy that lied to her at first, read her correctly. He was trying to put out her fuse before she became a real problem. I can forgive
anyone for a lie under those circumstances. We've all had a determined to find dirt even if it does not exist reactionary in our faces before I
think. Sadly they never seem to know what a spectacle they are and that they are not fooling anyone.
The more of these threads I read, the more I wonder, are people after the truth or they trying to manipulate the truth to fit their own theory? You
know, garbage tabloid journalism with a very small "j". I would like the truth without the hysteria, hype and fabricated facts pulled out thin air.
If I wanted that I'd have my nose buried in a checkstand tabloid.
Next we will be seeing the all the Doctors are in on it nonsense. If they find proof people are being sickened, it will be front page news. First they
have to filter out the fakers with get rich quick by law suit schemitis and those who are prone to psychosomatic illness from the real cases. That
can't be easy to do. With less than 150 reporting illness vs the thousands working, it is likely those two things explain a majority of the
Don't get me wrong. If anyone is sickened for real, or injured, BP should have their feet held to the fire. It's just that considering the number of
workers, I'd guess a couple of hundred will feign illness seeing dollar signs and I don't think I'm being unreasonable in saying that. You are also
bound to have some who get sick simply because they smell something and the idea was planted in their heads.
My mind keeps going back to the fact that what they are being exposed to is present in all automotive garages and any true harmful effects would be
well known by now. Seems that way to me. If not, we had better shut all the garages down yesterday. The fumes in those closed spaces should be far
worse than in the open air. Nearly every petroleum product you can imagine is in use in an automotive shop.
I do hope by now people are aware the story about all those who helped with the Valdez cleanup being dead is not true? Some did have some valid
illnesses that should have been studied. Some simply died due to age and illnesses unrelated. Many are still alive and living here, I assure you. Some
are even in the Gulf now helping. They could not do that if they were dead. CNN needs to clear that myth up since they seem to have invented it. An
overly excited reporter and dishonest producer and you get stories like that. CNN must be desperate for ratings.
