I'm here in Pensacola, survived the horrific storm we had here on the 28th.  At that point, the energy companies, including natural gas, were telling people to BOLO for the smell of gas.  Probably because of the video taken over at Cordova Park where a nat gas line was exposed and spewing gas into the air due to the erosion, flooding, mudslides.

The fact that Sheriff Morgan lost this jail to the county commission about 5-6 months ago because he had the audacity to ask for funds to fix this jail.  The county commission voted to take the jail away from him.  Every one of those cocksuckers should be resigning right now.  While the jail staff were telling their superiors about the smell of gas, they were told to "open the windows and turn on a box fan until the smell goes away".  As you can probably imagine, this did nothing but allow the jail to hit that scientific air/fuel ratio necessary for detonation.  And then.  Boom.  The booking portion of the jail collapsed, killing 2 people who hadn't even seen a farking judge.  IMHO, the county commission, through their heavy handidness and ignorance of the jail fixes that Sheriff Morgan sentenced these potentially innocent men to death.

You had better believe our next county commissioners meeting will be filled to the brim with the friends/family of the victims and they'll be the county commissioners have it.  The county commissioners sent Sheriff Morgan out as a sacrificial lamb yesterday while they were lying about the number of dead/injured and Morgan got an earful from a mother/bail bondsman of one of the inmates.  Families of the injured and dead were at the jail within about 15-20 minutes and saw more than 2 body bags being hauled out.  The county commission is trying to do a backwoods redneck spinjob on this because they know the amount of liability they've just opened this county up to has went to 18 out of 10.  We're already the poorest and most violent county in florida.  I'm afraid we won't see that change any time soon.
