The Crime Wave has gotten so bad recently that The Humboldt Bay Fire Department has to wait for the Eureka Police to secure the scene for them so that they can begin fire suppression activities or life saving measures! When seconds count, cops may be minutes away and unable to make the scenes safe for Fire and Medical personnel.
This is a theme that we have been reporting on since we started this blog. Now it’s gotten so bad that the authorities who have been in denial, about how bad things have gotten, are being forced to publicly admit it. It was on this morning’s KINS Talkshop that Humboldt Bay Fire Chief Ken Woods made this startling revelation.
This sudden increase in violence caused Talkshop host Papstein to ask what the hell was going on here and then refer to a book “The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference” by Malcolm Gladwell. Woods and Papstien agreed that Eureka was right on the edge of that kind of tipping point. Something we’ve been asserting here for awhile.
Let us break this down for you:
In accidents and health emergencies, minutes make the difference between life and death. So now, if Humboldt Bay Fire Department is delayed in responding because they have to wait for EPD to secure the scene, innocent people (ie. your friends and/or relatives) could succumb to their injuries before aid can be administered.
Then there is the spread of fire. If the initial attack is delayed then there is a real increase of it becoming uncontrollable. Wood’s spoke about a big increase in arson type fires being set as a type of assault on victims.
We’ve been sounding the warning for some time now. The iceberg was seen, and the captains of the ship have kept going toward it. Is now the time when the Titanic (City of Eureka) hits the block of ice, sending the city down in flames? Or can the City Council, Manager and Citizens of Eureka take a sobering look at the tip of the iceberg and make a drastic turn away from disaster? We hope is the latter, but fear it’s the former.
