    There are times during storms that emergency services are shut down to protect the first responders. Why are none of the coverage is warning the citizens when or under what conditions will emergency services be shut down?

    it is unfortunate and inhuman, why africans are used for sacrifice by various countries, few weeks ago, it was England, months ago, it was swiss and now Libya, in 1999 – 2000, africans where slaughtered in Libya by Libyan citizens which leads to evacuation and repertration of black Africans to their respetive countries. In 2009 Libyan Government executed almost 300 African brothers and sisters, plus numerious secret execution that have being going on. To mention but a least, on Tursday-23-08-2011 at about 2 : 10am in Ambuslim Tripoli; THE REBEL FORCES raid a house in this city where black African brothers and sisters run into, to save their lives and bundled them out of the building with two women, when this two ladies resisted not to follow them, this armed men battered them and said that their presence in this country is no longer needed, they went with them. Till this moment nobody have heard from them neither their way about. The same happened in other parts of the country like, shara-shara, shara-tisa, sherigier, dahra, grigarage etc. Please, i urge the International bodies, USA, UN, the diplomats, icc and the rebel leaders to investigate why the black Africans should be marsacar, does it mean that the black Africans who went to Libya for their dailly bread has become, Gadhafi, his family and regime, or they are now the regime that have being in power for more than forty years. Black brothers and sisters suffer sudden and untimely death for things they know not. Has it become a crime for people to migrate from their country of birth to another country for livelihood. instead them to face the problems in the country they are bussy killing blacks, and when has blacks turn to chrismas goat or cow. We need a stop to that immediately or.
