    Thank you for that link...it looks like a good start.I would have liked to have seen them include other types of occupancies as well. Fire sprinklers are the most efficient way of saving lives we have.It is a shame we don't use them
    everywhere.

    4 years! This guy's irrisponsibility caused the death of 100 people and gets 4 years!. A drunk driver kills one person and gets more than that.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    He isn't he only one, what about the poor inspection record, failure of the city to enforce thier own codes, negligence of the owners for illeagally installing the foam?
    At least this guy had hhis day in court, faced justice and recieved a penalty. All the while the owners and city ducks their responsibility by pointing fingers and claiming ignorance. They are just as guilty, if not more so than the band manager. It's the fire inspector that should be hung-but he and the city will sneak away under some type of imunity law....
    His sentence, right or wrong isn't my argument, that was for the courts and it's done.

    You beat me to it...well said! I would only add the band manager had the courage to admit responsibility,unlike the others you mentioned.

    Of course he isn't the only one that should be hung out to dry. I think they all deserve to be beaten over the head with the book and then have it thrown at them. 4 years my ***.

    Maybe 4 years is the right sentence;
    He did not delibrately set out to start the fire...
    But-
    The club owners delibrately used improper building materials
    The club owners delibrately failed to maintain the proper exits
    The club owners delibrately failed to follow occupancy codes
    The club owners delibrately failed to follow fire code
    The fire inspector delibrately failed to properly inspect the buiding
    The fire inspector delibrately failed to follow up on previous code violations
    The fire inspector delibrately failed to enforce current codes
    The city delibrately failed to ensure the fire inspectors where properly doing their job
    The city delibrately turned a blind eye to this club because of the owners connections.

    nmfire, I don't disagree with you, but I feel the bigger picture is the above.
