Rescuers Getting Sick

Website recommended to us by a reader.

Anyone who went to New York City and served in the recovery effort might want to head on over and read up on some of what you may have been exposed to. Just general information.

I'll make sure to tell Billy C. at work.
Oh, waite a minute. I almost forgot, Billy (one of the Bluest Coppers I know, One of the top ten DUI writers in the state for the last 5 years, one of the hardest workers I have ever seen) was sat down by the department about a year ago, and is in a battle against the state for his freedom in court, all because he allegedly slapped a drunk at the hospital (who was pissing off every person present, and likely didn't feel much) who was disturbing the patients.
Billy dropped 10 days to go out to New York to help out Coppers he had never met.
And the state is still trying to fry him, even though the "victim" has yet to make a court appearence.

we went to New York for September 11th and actually were at ground zero and doing building searches, but only for a day. Spent the other three days downtown doing crowd control. I feel for all those workers. I was coughing for a week when I was only there for 4 days...There was a smell that was the smell of death, but on a chemical level. Just as strong, but different. Anyone who was there within a month would know it. Just think of how big that building was and think of all the asbestos, freon, and other burning chemicals that were used in the manufacture of the computers,walls,paint,flooring materials, electronics, etc... These people lived on that pile of death for 12-16 hours a day for several months....Pray for them, they are going to need it...

The numbers are stagering and the public is basically unaware of the price those people continue to pay. Some 300 first responders have been medically retired since that fateful day. 33 have died as a result of breathing in those noxious fumes, and the numbers will increase. Cancer of the blood, kidneys, lymphnodes and other life threatening diseases have afflicted these selfless individuals who only did what they were paid/trained to do.

The simple act of wearing a respirator, surgical mask or even a rag over your mouth and nose meant all the difference. The toxic cloud that infected NY that horrific day was a mixture of all the materials of the WTC buildings (concrete, glass, metal, porcelin, human beings, sewage), pulverised together to form a deadly dust to welcome the responders.

How many of these individuals expected to face such a situation when they woke up that Tuesday morning? They did what they had to and what they could. Don't let their bravery, selflessness, heroism be forgotten. We must never forget what happened. We are the forefront on the war against terrorism. Be proud of who you are and what you stand for.

All that Richie would do for us in the same case is have his hired trucks build a monument while we die off.

NOT IF, BUT WHEN A 911 / TERRORIST TYPE ATTACK OCCURS IN CHICAGO, I WONDER WHAT POLITICAL FRIEND WOULD GET THE "WINNING BID" / CLEAN UP CONTRACT????

Our city politicians would say - "at least one good thing came from this, it brought jobs to our city"

And our City wants to host an Olympic Event here?

As conservative as I am, and believe me I am a conservative, I must ask, why isn't the Federal Government doing more to help our brothers and sisters in New York?

this is a little off topic here but here goes.

*There is currently a campaign underway to honor a convicted cop-killer from Philadelphia named Mumia Abu-Jamal.

*Mumia Abu-Jamal was convicted for the 1981 killing of a Philadelphia Police Officer.

*It does a disservice to the citizens of New York City to name a street after an un-repentant murderer.
*The facts of the case are available at danielfaulkner.com
Let's make sure this doesn't happen.
