Residents in Obion County, Tennessee have to pay an annual fee of $75 for fire department service. The Cranick family didn't pay, so firefighters stood around and watched their house burn to the ground.

I'm grateful for our wonderful volunteer fire department. The people in my city are real heroes and would never willingly allow this to happen to their fellow man.

Terrifying, isn't it? My uncle was a volunteer firefighter for as long as I can remember. The inlaws' house caught fire after their neighbor's nearly burned to the ground. I have friends whose house did burn to the ground... I'm just absolutely staggered by the inhumanity of it all. They stood there and watched. He offered to pay and they still refused. The worst part is it'd only be a .13 cent increase in property taxes to actually fund a dept throughout the entire county.

And my minds just going a mile a minute... Were there children? Would that have made a difference? What if they were stuck inside? F**k 'em or save 'em? If its the latter, do they watch the house burn after? Maybe fine the family too, for forcing them to go in? "Yeah, your house is gone. And you owe us $500." Children forced to suffer the sins of their father. I guess it's a Christian nation after all.

We rallied to the rescue of those on 9/11 without checking to see if they were paid up, but when this fellow American is in need, it's "f**k you and your children".

I'm just staggered that this is being touted as the favorable model in a time of lay offs, furloughs, unemployment, and low wages.

Disgusting. Truly disgusting.
