Underrated: Louisville Fire, EMS & LMPD for working like champs at an apartment fire this morning. These professionals deserve the city’s praise and more respect from Fischer’s administration.
Overrated: WAVE3′s Chris McGill for being a complete dick to private property owners, lying about it and then treating public servants as underlings. Weird, dishonest ego trips are not cool when lives are potentially at stake and people are worried about losing their homes.
Moral to this story: your city’s best – the people who will save your life when it’s needed – are consummate professionals. Television reporter with an ego bigger than Jake’s? The opposite of that.
For the record: We allowed other stations and media outlets to park and operate from our private property. But not that asshat. Not after that behavior with everyday citizens and the overworked, beyond tired servants of the public. Update: To top things off, WAVE later parked in the middle of a street, blocking private drives as soon as LMPD left the scene. And Mr. Big Pants Reporter flicked about a dozen half-smoked cancer sticks into the neighbor’s yard. That’s how seriously WAVE takes its job, apparently. (Every other outlet, again, has been superbly professional. Especially a local newspaper.)
BIG P.S. Louisville Fire even cares about your pets!
