The Winecoff Hotel Fire
The MGM Grand Fire
The Cocoanut Grove Club Fire or
The Beverly Hills Supper Club Fire
Where a young man was actually prosecuted and is now being released from prison after a reexamination of the evidence after 40 years.
Maybe it does not come up on the radar because it is one of the few so called solved fires which once again looks like junk science , narrow minded focused on only one suspect investigators and prosecutors and public pressure wrongly convicted a young man
but thats the way things where done back then and even now as investigators refuse to open there minds to any possibility of anything other than this is way it happened and it only could have happened this way wrong.
I can tell you this after 35+ years of working with and trouble shooting electrical ,mechanical and electronics . The impossible is possible and it can never be discounted and should never be suppressed or ignored by investigators in trying to get correct and true reasons why a fire or disaster has happened.
With all of the counterfeit products coming into this country from china and all of the products being pushed out and sent out into the field to early that are not thoroughly tested. Technicians like myself are finding problems with items all the time the factory says are good when sent back for testing .
Take the Honeywell Tuxedo WiFi Touch Screen Keypads I have had to replace 3 of them on a job and all 3 worked fine for up to 2 weeks then would go dark and not respond.
Sent back to the factory they put them in test jig for 24 hours and said they where good. Wrong they did not test them long enough to reproduce the results and I am not the only dealer who has had this problem. So there you go the factory has failed to identify and correct an issue. When I replaced the WiFi or hardwired Tuxedos with just hard wired only Tuxedo Keypads we have had no problems for over 2 months.
I have this all documented so if something in future comes up we will now how to deal with it.
But as you can see in the simple scenario above just how wrongful convictions could happen because the investigation into what was causing the problem was not thoroughly checked out .
Closed Narrow Minds are Dangerous Minds and this type of thinking needs to go away completely or we will never figure out how fires actually started and people will continue to be falsely railroaded and convicted and arsonists will get away with there crimes.
Keep a closed mind you will never figure it out and get wrong conclusions each and every time.
Now after 40 years how do you give this young man his life back you can not and how do you the narrow minded individuals who railroaded this young man sleep at night with what you did. How do any of you who do not do your job to the fullest extent to make sure you have the right person for the right reason sleep at night knowing what you have done.
I know exactly what I am talking about I got accused of stealing cameras and electronics from a school district where I was retrofitting a fire alarm .Never did it and nothing pointed to me doing it passed polygraph had all types of security clearances over the years and an eagle scout they wasted time and effort instead of focusing on what really went down . The crime went unsolved and 6 months later they caught a young janitor doing the exact same crime in the exact same school red handed doing it. Shame on those Allegheny County Detectives involved for not doing there jobs properly in the first place and wasting taxpayers money.
