Tennessee family home burns while firefighters watch | The Sideshow - Yahoo! News
A Tennessee couple helplessly watched their home burn to the ground, along with all of their possessions, because they did not pay a $75 annual fee to the local fire department.
Another example of public governments behaving like private corporations. Might as well go back to the 19th century, when there were private fire departments that would let your house burn if you didn't pay.
