The Killer Show

Human security is currently the top priority. In the world where human life is of great value, not only do numerous casualties bring various stories but also many people wishing justice, revenge, or this never happening again. No one can deny that fire caused by human negligence is the lesson that everyone has to learn without being amazed again by some miracle survivals or unbelievable reasons for such a tragedy.
One of the first things that struck me was Mike Vargas story. Having spent 90 minutes at the bottom of the huge burning human pile, not only has Mike survived, but he also received only minor burns. He was discharged from the hospital next afternoon. Such an escape made me not only surprised, but also curious. Was it his lucky star, fate of all other 30 people, or just the safest position for Mike?
Not less flabbergasting than the first fact is the second one — the number of coincidences. So many people became victims of the Station tragedy simply by chance: they were not the great fans of Great White or they were not going to attend the concert on February, 20 at the Station. They simply got into Jack Russells fortunate guest list. I felt extremely sorrowful for those people and at the same time angry at such twists of fate.
People had not more than 90 seconds from the initial ignition to escape from fire. What are we capable of doing in 90 seconds? This point made me pensive. I have come to the conclusion that we do not fully appreciate the time we have, we continue arguing, getting angry or offending while nothing is endless, and you never know when your 90 seconds are coming.
The fourth point was not an easy one to choose. I am torn between Jeff Raiders last photo and the duty of ME investigator Kingston to examine all the bodies at the Station on his own. The second was more potent than the first. On the one hand, I was astonished by his courage to make such a commitment, while on the other hand, by complete irresponsibility of others, who did not provide a shift for him and mental health assistance after he had finished his work.
Last but not least, the point concerns the overcrowding of the club. How could the maximum number of visitors grow by eight times since 1969, even taking into account that purpose of the building had changed from serving food and delicious meals to listening to the rock star groups? Such pursuit of money by the buildings owners and state fire authorities is simply beyond my understanding.
This is probably the reason why I, like many Rhode Island residents, would not say that justice prevailed. 500 hours of community service or 4 years to serve for greed and inattentiveness of the nightclub owners do not compensate even a half of the pain and troubles that victims and their relatives have had to go through. I felt like Derderian brothers were to pay more than the probation period and 1 million dollars. My stance is as follows — the higher your guilt is, the more you are to pay, if not with money then with years of community work and probation.
Although John Barylick fully describes why fire marshal Larocque omits even the opening of the case against him, it does not mean it has been the right or best decision. I do believe that The Station tragedy was not an accident, because an accident is something that you could not have prevented. This fire would have not caused so many casualties if club owners, Great White manager and state fire authorities had followed the instructions and had not chosen the cheapest solution.
I feel like a criminal action had to be applied to Jack Russell as he had formed the program of the event and he was not against attracting more fans by special pyro effects. Seeing him on TV or hearing that he gives a concert is very unlikely to be the expected outcomes by the victims families.
Applied civil action to Sealed Air Corporations seemed invalid to me. Even though they did sell the foam blocks to The Station ex-owner, almost ten had passed since that day, and the company could not have known the purpose of the purchase.
Having read this book, I started to put safety as the priority. I have always thought first about the general picture of the event (concept, place, spark, and host) or how important it is to have a good PR campaign, which remains essential; however, no PR campaign or famous host will let you forget people, of whose death you are guilty. There are a number of steps I am going to take from this time on as an event manager. First, to find an appropriate by size and documents venue for any special effects planned during the event. The second step is to provide adequate training on emergency evacuation for the staff and check the availability of automatic sprinklers and fire extinguishers. I also have to be sure that the area per person in the room is 0.6 or more square meters.
China, Brazil, Russia, Romania are the countries where the lesson of the Station tragedy has not been learned. While some may think that the main point of a lawsuit is punishment or acquirement of justice, avoiding the same mistakes would actually be the idea. Be responsible for your actions, and remember the devil is in the details.
