you are actually right, I was pointing out that corruption in new orleans is pretty rampant and that inspectors etc probably look the other way for 'gifts'...

Are the floors pre cast Span Crete? I was on a high rise motel job built with filled and re rodded cement block walls topped with section of Span Crete...We said it was a House of card" It too had a collapse when the crane lowing a Span Crete section dropped it..It wasn't as severe and no one was injured...

No, and New Orleans is dead and it should be de-zoned as a residential area. Sorry that Baton Rogue will be the new New Orleans but it was already ruined after Katrina.

You're being cute. He meant it fell down because it's New Orleans, which is and always has been an American Shithole. It's always been the reminder of what we're going to become once the Globalists get done with us.

One went down in Dallas June 10th of this year and took out several Condos and a parking garage. I saw a news report the other day, they just started getting the cars off the different parking decks.

They used a Crane!

Still not letting the residence retrieve their bleonging out of the building, or even trying to get any of it out. Only a few units were damaged, but they quarentined the entire building.

Cranes have killed more people than my entire collection of firearms since I've owned them.
