Cracks? What cracks?

One of the owners of the factory building that collapsed in Dhaka has been arrested; he’d been in hiding ever since the building fell down.

There has been widespread anger at the disaster and six people, including three factory owners and two engineers, have now been arrested. The building housed several garment factories.

By Sunday evening the confirmed death toll had reached 377, but hundreds more are still missing.

Well that would explain the anger. That’s a lot of people.

Police said officials had ordered an evacuation of the building on Tuesday after cracks appeared, but that the factories ignored them and were operating the next day.

That would explain the anger even better.

    Meanwhile, what’s the current social status of Texas fertilizer plant owners & operators?

    Angry? At the factory owner?? The owner should be angry! How dare the government tell him how to run his business! It may be a bad business decision to try and run a business in a building that could collapse at any second, but that is HIS DECISION to make.

    Those 377 dead people have no one but themselves to blame. They CHOSE to go to work in a factory that had big cracks in it. They could have just gotten a different job if they didn’t want to die in a horrifying accident! I’ve no sympathy at all for them.

    Ugh, my stomach is churning just typing those words. Let me try Republican, see if that works any better:

    If only those 377 people had had GUNS they wouldn’t be dead!

    Nope. That wasn’t just soulless, it was incomprehensible, too.

    Stevarious,

    How about
    I Peter 2: 18—3:7
    18 Slaves, in reverent fear of God submit yourselves to your masters, not only to those who are good and considerate, but also to those who are harsh. 19 For it is commendable if someone bears up under the pain of unjust suffering because they are conscious of God. 20 But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God. 21 To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.

    See? Jesus killed those slaves women and sent the suffering to their families to show how much he loves them.
