Re: “Was Operator of Oakland Warehouse Fire Venue 'Warned' of Safety Issues, 'Illegal' Construction, Danger?

There is always a tug of war between city regulators and those who push the envelope and ignore city citations. It is therefore incumbent on the city to take action to prevent situations like the fire. Citations don't do it. When human lives are at stake you can't count on cowboys to respond forthrightly. Why didn't the City bureaucrats haul the operator in front of a judge. Or shut down the facility. 20 20 hindsight is easy, I know, but the violations were going on for a long time.
