Fire kills 14 at workshop for disabled in Germany

A fire at a workshop in southwestern Germany killed 14 people on Monday, according to a Freiburg police spokesman.

Karl-Heinz Schmid said several other people were injured at the Caritas workshop for the handicapped in the town of Titisee-Neustadt.

Firefighters were still in the middle of "a big operation," he said.

    And over 200 die in a garmet sweatshop. In Bangladesh that suuplies chain stores such as Target, Wal Mart and higher end.
    For a dollar a day they lost their life, but not to worry there are plenty more such places there and plenty more willing to die for a chance to earn a dollar a day.
    Tis sad when ones die no matter the place but odd it is that value is by race.

      Here's a point to ponder – Is it possible for a capitalist system to flourish without a slave class? Hmmm....

    I was JUST thinking about that garment shop in bangledesh! Thats our wonderful free trade deal gone bad. Corporations in American paying less taxes for sending jobs overseas and employing child labor! And they wonder why this country is failing?

    While our Marxist government is working overtime to take our Second Amendment rights away, CNN IS mustering effort to single people out, to take thier freedom of speech away. "And don't think for a minute thier not".
