What I do find interesting, is that October 22, 2009, I wrote a blog about NM Firefighters suing over the "Scene From Hell" in which they were exposed to dnager and suffered post traumatic stress as a result of that incident. Check it out at http://www.firefighternation.com/profiles/blogs/nm-firefighters-sue... and read some of the responses from our "brothers" on this site.

There's 3 pages of responses, and some of them aren't that glowing in relation to the lawsuit. Comments include "manning up", "It's part of the job", "Move on to other careers" and so on.


Is the Charleston firefighters case any different in essence?
